Diamond ‘young at heart’

The Kanaka Creek elementary KC Kids’ Choir will take centre stage with Charlotte Diamond at The ACT.

Charlotte Diamond will perform at the ACT on Thursday March 12 alongside the Kanaka Creek elementary KC Kids’ Choir.

The Kanaka Creek elementary KC Kids’ Choir will take centre stage with Charlotte Diamond for a performance at the ACT on Thursday, March, 12 at 7 p.m.

This year, Diamond is celebrating 30 years of entertaining children and their families since the release of her Juno Award-winning debut album 10 Carrot Diamond in 1985.

As a former choral teacher in New Westminster, Diamond said she is delighted to be performing with the talented Kanaka Creek elementary KC Kids’ Choir.

Diamond has been a frequent performer at the ACT in Maple Ridge and in the Tri-Cities area.  Her latest CD, 24 Carrot Diamond – the Best of Charlotte Diamond,  features 24 well-known favourites, such as Four Hugs a Day, Each of Us Is a Flower, The Hug Bug, Dicky Dinosaur, I am a Pizza, Octopus (Slippery Fish) and La Bamba.

Also, for young families, she recently released her first Children’s board book,  Slippery Fish in Hawaii, based on her well-loved song, Octopus (Slippery Fish).

In addition to  performing close to home, Diamond will be presenting her award-winning music at concerts and conferences throughout Canada and the U.S. this summer.

Diamond said she hopes to inspire families to enjoy singing and playing musically with their children.

This year, Diamond is joined by her son, Matt Diamond, on electric guitar and vocal harmonies.

Diamond said the performance is also engaging with the audience. She said she encourages families to bring maracas and shakers to join in the fun for  lots of the songs.

Diamond said her concerts appeal to all ages, from preschoolers to the “young at heart.”
