Kidz Bop Live Bounces into Boise
Can you believe they're already on Kidz Bop 38?!
Every time a new Now That What I Call Music album comes out, I feel just a little bit older. The Now 66 came out a month ago and I'm sitting here like "I think I still have my original copy of Now 1 somewhere." The original Now CD came out in 1998 and shortly after that, a similar phenomenon started creeping into infomercials.
The first Kidz Bop album came out in 2001 and featured songs like Nsync's "Bye, Bye, Bye," Smashmouth's "All-Star," Backstreet Boy's "I Want It That Way" and Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me." What made this CD different from the Now series, was the fact that the songs were performed in the style of the original artist by the Kidz Bop Kids. They were covers of the biggest hits, done by kids for kids. Since that original album, Kidz Bop has sold over 19 million albums and has been streamed over 1 billion times.
Oh! And it's earned its own family-friendly stage show! The kids who performed on the upcoming Kidz Bop 38 will be in the Treasure Valley this October. Here's the 411 on the show if you want to take your kids!
