Because children love music too.
Everyone loves music, and for children it's an especially important medium. It shapes their childhoods, teaches them life lessons and educates them. That's why some of the music industry's biggest icons have jumped into the kids' genre to offer their own input - the latest being good old Dolly.
1. Dolly Parton - She might be a household name, but this year marks the first time Dolly has ever released a children's album. 'I Believe in You' dropped in September on Dolly Records and RCA Nashville, and featured songs aiming to teach kids to respect others and nurture their own self-esteem. All proceeds from the sale of the album went to her Imagination Library charity fund.
Usain Bolt is the fastest runner in recorded history with a record of 9.58 seconds in a 100 metre dash. He has nine Olympic gold medals and is marked as an eleven-time World Champion Athlete. But despite this, the aptly named Bolt has never forgotten his modest beginnings in Kingston, Jamaica. He's never taken his talent for granted and remains a humble human being who is ultimately adored by everyone he meets. In his new documentary, he talks about what's it's like to be a world champion and a record holder; the pressure it brings to him, the gruelling training that isn't always an enjoyable experience, and the ever more ungodly hours at which he has to awaken. Within this candid look at his world, he confesses that even though he is the fastest sprinter in history, he still gets nervous before he has to race and always worries about whether or not he is still fast.

The line-up for Tortuga 2014 is a thrilling mix of veterans and newcomers; from Hank Williams, Jr. to Brett Eldredge.
Following the excitement of the Academy of Country Music Awards at the weekend, it's only right to give a little reminder of what's coming next weekend: Tortuga Music Festival hits Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 12th-13th 2014!
It may be over 600 miles away from its namesake location in Haiti, but Florida's sandy Fort Lauderdale Beach Park nonetheless provides a perfect sun-soaked setting for the country, rock and roots event. Not only have you got a beautiful location and, of course, an incredible line-up, but by attending this festival you'll also be making a significant contribution to the Rock The Ocean Foundation - helping to raise money for ocean related research, conservation and education.

It would be really interesting to see what an R-rated version of Shark Tale might encompass. All the mafia-related gags might hold more punch. The subplot, involving one shark's disappointment in his son, might reveal what a PG version can only hint at. As it is, though, we're left with a kids' film that, while consistently funny, is more cute than clever.
The story begins when Oscar (Will Smith), a working-class fish with fame and fortune on the brain, runs afoul of his boss, Sykes (Martin Scorsese), a puffer fish with the largest eyebrows known to aquaria. Deep in debt, Oscar is taken out to pasture by Sykes' Jamaican jellyfish goons (a hilarious Ziggy Marley & Doug E. Doug). Enter Lenny (Jack Black), a shy shark out on a mission to be toughened up by his brother Frankie (Michael Imperioli) on behalf of his shark mob boss dad, Don Lino (Robert De Niro). One thing leads to another, and suddenly it appears as if Oscar has slain Frankie.

"Shark Tale" is the kind of flashy and colorful but insultingly trite Hollywood regurgitation that far too often gets a pass under the excuse that "it's just a kids' movie."
The computer-animated comedy from some of DreamWorks' "Shrek" team begins with a burst of promising imagination, establishing an undersea metropolis that includes a coral-reef Times Square populated with graffiti-covered whales, Rastafarian jellyfish and one very empty (rimshot, please!) sushi restaurant.
Then the plot kicks in and the characters start talking -- and it's all downhill from there.
