2014 | Children's Album of the Year | Charlie Hope | | The JUNO Awards

Charlie Hope spent her childhood in Toronto and Boston harmonizing with her sister and in her school choirs. Charlie’s fresh approach to children's music stems from the many years she has spent with children, from receiving her degree in Art Therapy with Children to the preschools and private homes where she was a trusted caregiver. Charlie believes that music is vital to a child’s overall well-being and strives to make music that reflects and respects their experiences. Her previous albums I'm Me!, World of Dreams, and Songs, Stories and Friends: Let’s Go Play! have all garnered international critical praise. Along with the 2012 JUNO Award for Best Children's Album, Hope’s music has won acclaim from the Independent Music Awards and Parents’ Choice, which praises her "unforced sunny spirit and youthful, sweet and clear-as-a-bell soprano." Zooglobble’s Stefan Shepherd describes her songs as "sparkly and joyful, with Hope's bright, clear voice carrying the tune." Echoing many other reviewers, Cool Mom Picks recommends Hope’s "clear-as-glass, pitch-perfect voice."
