“How Many Kings” by DOWNHERE {Music}

After hearing this song for the first time this week I really wanted to share it with you all. I looked it up on YouTube and discovered it’s 4 years old. And a Christmas song. Oh well. It’s amazing! Let me know what you think :)

Free (Legal!) Music Downloads

I recently came upon the site NoiseTrade. According to their website: “NoiseTrade provides an alternative for music fans who want to download good music and still support the artists they love.  And it’s perfect for music fans who don’t have a lot of money but want to help great artists and fans just discovering new music.  You can choose to help in a few ways.  You can tip the artist, share the music on Facebook or Twitter, and email your friends from the NoiseTrade widget.”

One of my favorite finds on this site so far has been a free download of the “O Holy Night Tour Live: The Prison Show” by Sara Groves. Click the image below to be taken to the website to download this music along with music by many other artists.

(Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post just something I wanted to share with you all :) Enjoy!)

The Rattles Review And Giveaway

The Rattles debut CD came out on Tuesday and I wanted to share it with you all. The Rattles are a family friendly band that both children and parents can enjoy together. According to their press release, their music is “working in the classic traditions of The Beatles, Moxy Fruvous, The Monkees, and They Might Be Giants“. Check out the YouTube video below:

Jacob (my 2 year old) enjoyed dancing around our living room while he listened to the music. He also seemed to like the characters as he spent a lot of time looking at the CD insert.

The Rattles website has more information about the band. It also includes resources for children (like coloring pages) and for parents (like a list of skills the music helps develop).

Giveaway:

One Making Time For Mommy reader will win a copy of the Rattles debut CD.

“Meant To Be” by Ryan Scott

A beautiful song by Ryan Scott to his biological mom who was raped but chose life for her son. I normally don’t post a single video as a blog post but this song really touched me and I love the message.
