About the Event

Alphabet Rockers make music that makes change. Founded by Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd, this GRAMMY-nominated intergenerational group gained national acclaim on CBS This Morning. Their upbeat, catchy lyrics, often penned by children, aim to shape a more equitable world through hip hop.

Headlining performances at Lollapalooza, The Kennedy Center, San Francisco Pride Festival, Art & Soul Festival, Kidchella and in over 50 schools across the country each year, Alphabet Rockers are beloved for their contemporary sound and positive messages. In addition to two Grammy nominations, they were Izzy Award Winners in 2018, American Library Association’s Top Album in 2017 and 2018, and won the Parents’ Choice Award for their 5-album catalogue.

Alphabet Rockers inspire bravery and connection with lyrics like “I will stand up for you” and “I shine in my beautiful skin,” landing them in the top five songs of 2018 on Kids Place Live SiriusXM Radio. Oh, and did we mention there will be dancing?

This 1 hour performance is recommended for future change-makers ages 5 to 12 and their families.

…a more hopeful sound rising.”
