Testimonials

A big THANK YOU to you again for the amazing performance you did today at Thunderbird! We all LOVED your fabulous energy, catchy songs, infectious energy and beautiful voice! The kids, teachers, parents and staff had so much fun and the little preschools were totally into it too!

Janey Lee

Kindergarten Teacher



"We have had these books for almost a month now, and Zackary still requests them regularly. Sometimes he sits down and flips the pages of the book as he listens, and other times he simply jumps around to the song, but there is no question that he loves the Angela Kelman sing-along books and music."

“On the surface Frank The Cat is a fun book with great illustrations, but at the core I think this is a book about identity and the phases we

all go through as we try to figure out our place in this crazy world. A story about a Cat is destined to become a classic...but then I am

a little biased:) Read and sing with the children!” -

Fred Penner

Children's Entertainer


“Music is a wonderful way for children to learn language, and an equally

powerful way for children to learn how to read. Not only are Angela Kelman's

sing-a-long books fun for the whole family, the rhyme, rhythm and repetition

allow children time to engage and enjoy the story. As Daniel Levitin says in

his book: “This is your brain on music”, music is an 'all brain activity' so sing

your stories and have fun learning to read!”

Allison Taylor McBryde

Coordinator of Children's and

Young Adult Services, North Vancouver District Public


"Music + Literature = Reading Success! Take a catchy tune with

delightful lyrics, then add some dancing dinosaurs and you have

a wild and crazy party happening. Angela knows how to get

children of all ages singing, dancing and READING! The

fun vocabulary and rhythms make "Disco Dinosaurs" a

highly motivating literacy tool."

band. I would be the drum guy.”

Bio

After 30 odd years in the music business (and some more odd than others), Angela Kelman has an impressive list of accomplishments. In 1989 she graduated with honours from the vocal program at Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, California. Upon returning to Canada, she became the lead singer and a principal writer for the Award Winning contemporary country group, Farmer’s Daughter. The group enjoyed major Canadian success with Gold albums, numerous CMT videos, t.v. appearances, extensive touring as well as multiple Juno, CCMA, and BCCMA Awards.


Most recently, after 10 years of vocal coaching, she has launched “The 5 Point Singing System”. This vocal program is designed to take both beginner and seasoned singers to new heights with a straight forward, easy to understand method. The digital format includes a manual as well as video tutorials and exercises infused with Angela’s wit and vocal insight, making it fun and interactive. This system is ideal for professional singers who need a tune-up before going back into the studio or on tour.


In addition to The 5 Point Singing System, Angela has created Juno Nominated children’s music and sing-a-long books such as “Frank The Cat”, “Disco Dinosaurs” and “Funky Monkey”. The series has been mesmerizing children and parents alike with the catchy, action packed songs and beautifully illustrated books. She can often be found performing her fun and interactive children’s repetoire at several children’s events around the country.


In her spare time (LOL), Angela continues to gig with her dream bands: The Polyester Philharmonic, an impressive retro dance band with a repetoire from the 60’s and 70’s, her Café Brasilia Band featuring North American Pop with South American Style, and her Groovy Lounge Band featuring beloved songs from the 40’s to current day. She boasts of her ability to wear 6” platform shoes and sing, dance and keep audiences engaged for 3 hours a night as well as anyone half her age.
