Following in his continuous wholehearted high-five to community and kindness, the Toronto-based kid’s music man offers a fun and encouraging approach to harnessing children’s endless energy into exercise and activity.
Produced by GRAMMY Award-winning nominee and JUNO Award-winner Ken Whiteley (Raffi, Fred Penner), the song is the latest to land from the artist’s newest LP, Together. The sprightly 10-song album imparts Sprout’s core values of caring, consideration, and good ol’ frolicsome fun to kids, and kids-at-heart.
“The message is so important, especially right now, and especially after the last few years we’ve come through as a community,” Russell, who’s also a rad dad of three, shares. “Kids are naturally full of beans, and this song does nothing but encourage them and the ones they love to get up to move and groove together in a fun, celebratory way!”
Russell Sprout’s ongoing mission and mantra to keep lyrics in line with his primary audience of youngsters is a quintessential representation of the artist — and Canadian kids are connecting.
“‘The Health Hustle’ is a song that has really been a hit with the Toronto area schools I work with,” Russell reveals. “Kids love to hear it, and they especially like the actions that go along with it.”
As such, the new video complete with movements will help reach even more kids beyond Ontario’s largest city; the lyrics and professionally notated sheet music are also available as part of the album’s fully-illustrated 12-page booklet, or on his website as a free download.
