I’m so happy to tell you that the CD we have a song on, All About Bullies…Big and Small has won the 2011 Grammy for Best Children’s Album. We are beyond excited! We’re grateful to share this amazing honor with so many artists who donated their songs/tracks to address this important issue. Thank you to Steve Pullara and all of the producers of this CD for including Debbie and Friends in this compilation!

Debbie and Friends has a song on an album that was nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award in the Children’s Music Category! “Walk Away” is our song on the anti-bullying compilation called All About Bullies Big And Small. It is one of five nominees for Best Children’s Album! The winner will be announced at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards Ceremony on Feb. 12.
Here’s the cartoon music video version of our song that is on the nominated CD.
That’s right! Debbie and Friends is taking on bullying with a new dance number called “Walk Away,” and we’re excited to share a sneak preview with you!
The cartoon music video is in production right now. The following is our rough sketch storyboard version.
As you know from previous cartoon music videos, the storyboard contains the song and the general visual direction of the cartoon. After the storyboard is approved, the animators start the hard work of coloring and animating. It takes 30 drawings for every second of animation, so there is a lot of work ahead!
The band and I hope you enjoy the new song. “Walking away” is one of the strategies taught for dealing with bullies. I hope it proves helpful for some of our young friends who may experience bullying.
The final version of the cartoon music video will be ready in September!
