In case you’re looking for a fun way to engage kids in a summer reading program, educational rapper MC SKULE‘s latest viral music video encourages kids to read! The song, Read with Me, parodies Walk the Moon’s hit song Shut up and Dance and has already received over 120,000 views on Facebook. The song was also performed as a part of the 2017 Liberty Fest performance in Canton. Check out the song here:
Read with Me was created in collaboration with Crissman Elementary School in Utica, Michigan. It features Anna Hilliard and IV Green – as well as the entire student body and staff members, who share our goal to inspire other kids to keep reading and learning. Laura Hamrick spent a month with the students in preparation for the song, creating props and rehearsing. Music was produced by Michael Dante, and Mixed and Mastered by Chuck Alkazian of Pearl Sound Studios. Directed by Drake Whelton. We hope you enjoy the song, and please share it with your community members.
Let’s get as many kids as possible to engage in one of the best human endeavors: reading!
