|THIS MESSAGE IS BROUGHT TO
YOU FROM THE LETTER
From Bob! Bob from Sesame Street - Christmas Sing Along! Bob McGrath from Sesame Street will have the entire family singing and dancing to fifteen of their
favorite holiday tunes with his first Christmas CD! Everyone form toddlers to grandparents will enjoy these fun new arrangements that feature not only a host of
extraordinary musicians, but the Young People's Chorus of New York City. Country, Caribbean, stride and R&B rhythms put a new face on the old classics and leave
everyone clamoring to "play it again" as they strut down the street with Frosty.
Click here to learn more about Bob's new Christmas Sing Along album, complete with lyrics so you can sing along too!
And now a word from Bob: I actually have a longer name, but
everyone knows me as Bob from Sesame Street. It’s a little weird writing to someone you have never met, but I guess not much stranger than talking to an eight foot Yellow
Bird or to a Grouch in a trash can. This web site is here to let you know what I am doing when I’m off the STREET...
You can find everything youve never wanted
to know about me and more in Bio.
Youll find my latest recordings
with incredible musicians under Music. Surprisingly you will find
my famous potty book under Books. Hopefully somewhere, sometime,
someplace when I am on Stage I may get to meet you in person.
Quick Notes from Bob McGrath
Did you know that the #1 download for
Bob McGrath on iTunes is the ringtone for "Rubber Ducky"? How fun is that!
I hope you all enjoyed the Sesame Street float on the Macy Day Parade on Thanksgiving. It was a beautiful day with over 3 million viewers lining the streets, cheering and singing along as we went down the parade route. It doesn't get any better! Fun to see both children, families and New York's
finest police force all having a great time.
The world famous pianist Lang Lang joined our float playing along with all the cast and
Muppets singing a song called "Songs".
This seems to be a busy "parade season" for me. You might like to tune in on December 6th as I have been invited to be the "Grand
Marshall of the 2008 America's Children's Parade" in Oakland, California. It will be broadcast on PBS stations throughout the nation. It begins at 2PM. Last year it was broadcast over 100 times to tens of thousand viewers.
On New Year's day, I will be riding on the "Sesame Street float in the Tournament of Roses Parade" in
Pasadena, Ca. Our float will be sponsored once again by NAMM, The International Music Products Association, and will likely be the longest float at over 400 feet in the parade.
We begin taping our 40th season of Sesame Street next month. Hope you will all be looking forward to our new season, as all of us in the cast and Muppets are.
I will give you all a special "wave" from the parades, and if you are in the holiday spirit, be sure to check out my new Christmas CD, "Christmas Sing Along". It is available at most music outlets such as Barnes and Noble, Allegro Media Group, as well as on line at iTunes and Amazon.
Have a great holiday!
