A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to preview “The Little Giant” – an inspiring new children’s musical experience from three-time EMMY® winner Kathie Lee Gifford. Honestly, I have not had a free moment to sit and listen to it until now. But, I’m certainly enjoying it and wanted to share it …
What is “The Little Giant”?
An inspiring new children’s musical experience from three-time EMMY® winner Kathie Lee Gifford. The song-filled adventure encourages kids to appreciate what makes them unique.
Through a collection of 13 new songs co-written by Gifford, families can go on a journey to find their special stone in the re-telling of the empowering David & Goliath story in a contemporary yet timeless way.
Regis Philbin (as Jesse) and Broadway notables Aidan Gemme (as David) and Gregg Edelman (as King Saul/Goliath) among others joined voices with the celebrated television and Broadway personality who assumed the role of Sheeba, a ewe with tons of personality.
The Little Giant stems from a life-changing trip that Gifford took to Israel with her late husband Frank Gifford, to whom the project is dedicated. “There in the valley where David defeated Goliath, Frank and I had a life-transforming experience,” shares Gifford. “We all had been taught that the miracle was that a young boy took down a giant. But in reality, in those days, any shepherd was experienced in killing big animals that threatened the flock. Just as the Lord had prepared David for that one moment, we realized that God has already given each of us a stone to use. That’s the real miracle. The question then becomes ‘What is our stone and how will we use it?’”

I’ve been listening to this musical this afternoon and I’m absolutely loving it. The songs are catchy, fun, and well-done. I also like the narration and the speaking parts. This musical is high quality and definitely worth listening to. It would be a fun thing to share with your young children or Sunday School students.
The Little Giant released on Sept. 29 through New Haven Kids, a division of New Haven Records, which is distributed to the faith-based retail trade through Provident Music Distribution and to mainstream market through SONY Music Distribution. You can get your copy on Amazon.com today!
