Dan Schteingart's latest album, "Red Balloon," is up for GRAMMY consideration in the Children's Category. It is a collection of songs, with the goal of exposing children to many languages concurrently, capitalizing on their ability to remember sounds, inflections, and pronunciation. Along with this, the songs are also geared towards supporting a child’s social and emotional growth and self-worth. “123, Count With Me”, “Sharing”, “Red Balloon”, “That’s How We Dance”, and the John Lennon Songwriting Contest finalist, "Keely's Song" are educational, entertaining, and emotional.
