This is a sponsored post for Now That’s What I Call Music. All opinions are my own.
I am a child of the 80's. I grew up on mixtapes, Walkmans, and MTV. There was nothing I enjoyed more than rocking my headphones on a walk or watching MTV on the television at my friend's house. Times have changed since then. Just a little bit, right? Now my teens are rocking earbuds and iPhones and watching videos on YouTube and streaming music on Spotify. But the concept is the same. Music speaks to teens today just like it did 30 years ago when I was a kid. And, unlike my own mom, I want to embrace it right along with my daughter!
Now That’s What I Call Music!
The way we listen to music has changed a lot, but Now That’s What I Call Music still brings us some amazing compilations of current music. The NOW brand has sold 100M records and has had a record 19 #1 albums. The newest release, Now 64, features 22 of today’s most popular songs. You can get it everywhere starting November 3rd. Now 64 is like a mixtape in a time capsule of what’s cool RIGHT NOW. Sure, I love my oldies, but my daughter and I enjoy the current pop hits together, too!
Now 64 is the perfect playlist of songs!
My daughter listens to music all the time and thinks nothing of spending 4 straight hours with headphones in her ears. I don't usually have that much time to enjoy it but love hearing the current hits so I'm not completely clueless when she talks to me about current songs and artists. Now 64 rounds up the best of the best so that we have one album we can both enjoy while we cook together or drive in the car. And for you moms of younger kids...don't worry! Now 64 is edited to be family friendly! And you know what she really loves about it? Now 64 is the perfect album for her to rock out to as she works on her sign language!
Sign Language for Music Lovers!
So, my daughter has been learning sign language for about 4 years now and even has her own YouTube channel. Honestly, learning sign language through music has been a passion of hers for years and Now That’s What I Call Music has an awesome selection for her to choose from! She hopes to make a career of her sign language one day and I love that her passion for music makes it so much fun for her to learn. You can watch her sign "Praying" by Kesha in the video above.
If your child has an interest in learning sign language, encourage them to grab the Now 64 album and starting learning ASL through music! Now 64 has 22 of today’s biggest and latest hits and makes a perfect gift if you are looking for something to get them for Christmas!
