A Life of Song ()


Ella Jenkins has spent a lifetime bringing her songs and stories to children, and she is adept at picking traditional material that resonates across cultures. This set features Jenkins singing with children from the Cool Classics after-school program and includes poignant singalong versions of "Cotton-Eyed Joe," "Amazing Grace," and "The Cuckoo." ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
