What's the story?

Award-winning children's musician Aaron Nigel Smith releases his second album, EVERYONE LOVES TO DANCE, a celebration of music and movement that encourages kids to listen ("Simon Says") and pretend ("Let's Pretend"), as well as move, groove, and appreciate life and nature. Ziggy Marley, Kevin Richardson (Backstreet Boys), and Amanda Watkins sing on the album, as well.
