Bonding Over Music

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Now That’s What I Call Music. All opinions are mine alone.

Music has always been a big part of my life. In fact, I have always said that the best way to listen to songs is with others! My daughter, Sophia, and I actually love many of the same songs and singing together is one of our favorite hobbies. I recently had the privilege of getting a sneak preview of the Now That’s What I Call Music 64 album and I’m totally loving it. It’s a great compilation of today’s hottest and latest hits (from artists like Charlie Puth, Alessia Cara and Shawn Mendes).
I think of music as the soundtrack of my life. I listen to it every day and it’s a powerful force. With the right music, our moods can be lifted, our energy levels can be boosted and our attentions can be improved. I listen to music in the car, at the computer desk and in the shower/bath.
I work out several times per week. To be honest, I cannot remember ever heading to the gym without my music player and earbuds. Listening to an upbeat song is the easiest way to boost my speed on the treadmill or increase the intensity of my reps with dumbbells.
Did you know that the NOW brand has sold over 100M records and has had a record 19 #1 albums? Now that’s impressive! With Now 64 (the latest release in the NOW franchise), you can enjoy 22 of today’s best songs in one album. It’s actually available everywhere starting today (November 3rd) and it’s the perfect compilation of what’s popular RIGHT NOW! My daughter and I absolutely love to sing together.

Nowadays my daughter actually knows all the top songs before I do! So when I shared some of these #NowThatsMusic hits with her, she was super excited to have a singing party with me. By the way, Now 64 songs are edited to be family-friendly and parent-friendly, so we can enjoy these songs together without worry!

We grab a toy microphone and just sing to our heart’s content. There’s usually a lot of giggling involved! 🙂

The kids love listening to songs with me because it means “Mom is cool”. I love listening with them because it means I am sharing special moments with her.
