Rita Shamie is honored that this CD was selected in the roundup of the 'Best of 2004'. In a varied professional career Rita Mizrahi Shamie has done it all! Theater, Televison, Commercials, Voice-Over, Nightclubs, and Cabaret. Her zest for life and living can be seen and heard in all she has accomplished, but Rita insists that life's greatest gift, are the joys of 'Grand-Mothering' her ten Grandchildren. She knows what kids like, and she always delivers! Her latest award winning creation,'The Eight Nights Of Chanukah' is a Family Friendly, tongue twisting story, that adults and children can enjoy together. Here, we find Rita's inviting singing voice and storytelling capabilities coming together for an original Chanukah story that portrays eight nights of frolic, food, and fun. Each evening a different family member carries their specialty to the already heaping dinner table. One imagines the moans of joy as belt notches are moved to make room for more, 'Oy'. One can almost taste the delicious dishes, and one can almost hear exclamations of 'Boy, I couldn't eat another thing... well, maybe, just another 'iddy biddy bite'. Popular in Europe a's well as the good old 'USA', Grandma Rita's songs can be found in the 'Top 100 Popular Songs in Children's Music' in the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Belgium and also Japan. Rita's saved a place for you at the table, so bring your musical appetite along and enjoy and thanks for listening to the talent that is Rita Mizrahi Shamie.
