Giveaway: Ziggy Marley’s CD “Family Time” & iPod Shuffle

Ziggy Marley is bringing music to the little people! The eldest son of Bob Marley is releasing his first children’s album and has invited some family and pretty cool friends to join him on it. Jack Johnson, Laurie Berkner, Elizabeth Mitchell and Jamie Lee Curtis are only a few of the artists featured on the CD Family Time, in stores May 5th. In addition to some well known classics like “This Train” and “Hold Him Joe” Ziggy has written many original songs on this release which are endearing tributes to his family with many sage words of wisdom for kids.

The four time Grammy-winning Jamaican musician describes the importance of celebrating music and family: “Growing up, music was an important part of my childhood. I see it being just as important in my children and all children’s growth and development, to help them grow with open minds and open hearts… This record represents my daily family life and is inspired by my three-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon. It was a joy to make and opened up new avenues in my creativity.”

In addition to his skills as a singer, songwriter and producer, Ziggy founded U.R.G.E. (Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment), a non-profit organization that benefits a wide range of charitable children’s causes in Jamaica, Ethiopia and other developing nations. More recently he has thrown his support behind the Youth AIDS campaign. Proceeds from the sale of Family Time will benefit Chepstowe Basic School in Port Antonio, Jamaica.

Check out the music video for the single “Family Time.”

We are giving away an iPod shuffle & copy of Ziggy’s new CD to one winner. Ten additional winners will receive a copy of the Family Time CD.

*HOW TO ENTER* Leave a comment here with a valid email address (will not be published).

Like many others we too listen to music at home & in the car. My daughter will be seven years young this month & she loves to sing & dance. Adding this CD to her collection music would be wonderful experience for her.
I’m sure that our box of homemade instruments will go very well with the songs on the CD.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Since I do not have children, I’m extremely close to and spend lots of time with my neices. One of our favorite activities is playing sing along with their karaoke machine! Boy, I’d certainly be their favorite aunt if I had an ipod and a Ziggy Marley CD!

I’m embarassed to say this, but I have never listened to a full Ziggy song/album. BUT I will say that I know my children would love to dance to this music! I think incorporating music in their lives is very important, whether it’s music I listen too, or another genre. THey are 3 and 9 months and when the tunes come on it’s smiles, jumping and twirling! Family Time sounds like it’s Our Time!

Thank you

I love Ziggy Marley and his message that he delivers through his songs. Not only him but the whole Marley family as well. I would love this cd to play not only for the little ones around me but myself and everyone I know. Spreading the message that family is important. This CD I do not believe is so much meant for children but families in general.

I have a little boy, 3 yo, born preemie. He spent 98 days in NICU fighting with doctors and nurses at nearly every turn. When upset, they would put a little music box on to soothe him and help him off to sleep. At some point during during those 3 mos in the hospital, he lost his hearing. Today he’s learning to listen & speak thanks to a cochlear implant. Since getting his implant, playing the piano, watching musical programs like Little Einsteins, Jacks Big Music Show etc., listening to music and dancing with mommy are among his favorite things… Read more »
