Laurie Berkner ready to 'Sing It' over on Sprout: EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Laurie Berkner’s new animated shorts series Sing it, Laurie! debuts this Monday, March 25 as part of a Sprout music block (noon-4p.m. ET), and the best-selling singer couldn’t be happier to see it — along with the animated version of herself — come to life.

“Seeing the characters singing and moving is so exciting and is more than my little brain was able to imagine,” she joked. “And I think Little Airplanes [studio] does such good work with that. It’s beautiful to me.”

The series follows a little girl (voiced by Berkner) who uses her music to understand the world around her. Every episode, a minute and 50 seconds long,  will feature a new song, as well as the voice of Grammy-nominated musician Lisa Loeb (who plays a set of twins named Mellie and Nellie). Sing It, Laurie! is produced by Little Airplane, the studio behind Wonder Pets and Small Potatoes.

“There’s a little bit of talking in it but it’s mostly a song, ” says Berkner. “I have a little intro before every episode where I hand things over to animated Laurie. You meet a lot of the characters from the show but there’s only one episode that I am actually in.  It’s called ‘Laurie and Me.’”

Take a look at an exclusive clip from that episode after the jump. READ FULL STORY
