Today (Mar. 2), Decca Gold (Verve Label Group) is announcing the release of the Hopes and Dreams: The Lullaby Project, a collaborative album inspired by the Carnegie Hall Weill Music Institute’s Lullaby Project. The program provides support for maternal health, and seeks to strengthen the bond between mother and child through art, by pairing pregnant women and new mothers with professional artists to create lullabies for their children.
The upcoming Hopes and Dreams record is just that, a group of baby-soft lullabies about the beautiful and unexplainable bond between mothers and their kids.
NBC’s The Voice contestant Janice Freeman is featured on the album, lending her warm vocals on “Wildest Dreams,” a stripped down lullaby carried by a sweet, soft piano melody. Freeman croons gently over a beautiful stream of piano chords about the realizing the beauty of motherhood. “You’re safe, you’re loved, you’re mine/ I’m here for all of time/ I never knew I could feel this way, my widest dreams have come true,” she sings.
Also featured on Hopes and Dreams: The Lullaby Project — which is set for release on April. 20 — are a plethora of star-studded musicians, including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Patti Lupone and Rosanne Cash.
