WALT DISNEY RECORDS SET TO RELEASE THE
ELENA OF AVALOR SOUNDTRACK EP
LATIN GRAMMY® AWARD WINNNG ARTIST GABY MORENO
PERFORMS SERIES THEME SONG
EP AVAILABLE JULY 22
My girls have a new favorite show on Disney Channel....Elena of Avalor. Have you seen the new animated series yet? If you haven't, then you will want to tune and catch this new series. When I first heard about this new Disney character and how it would be of Latin decent, I was excited...not just because I love Disney shows and movies and new characters, but because it is hard to find a show that portrays Latinas in a positive light, or even has a Latina as the main character. As you know, my girls are part Latina, as their Daddy is from El Salvador. So, I am always looking for ways to share their ethnicity and Latin values with them.
Thanks to the July 22nd premiere of Elena of Avalor, my girls have become instant fans of the show and its music. And, when they saw the new Elena of Avalor soundtrack arrive on our doorstep, they couldn't wait to start listening to it. :-) It only took a couple listens for the girls to get all the songs down. And, now whenever we go out to run errands or for weekend day trips, this CD is always playing in the car, and the girls are always singing along, to their new favorite Disney animated television series.
Here is more information about the show airing now on Disney Disney, as well as the new soundtrack release. And, be sure to read through to the end, as I am offering one lucky reader the chance to win a copy of the Elena of Avalor soundtrack for themselves, or to share with a special child in their life. Good luck!!!
