Date April 18, 2011 / 1101 reads

On May 17, Kidz Bop, the #1 music brand for kids ages 5-12 in the U.S., will release the latest album in its best-selling audio series, "Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads". For the special release, Kidz Bop has teamed up with legendary rocker and frontman Bret Michaels and his daughters Raine and Jorja Michaels to record a rockin' new version of his power ballad classic "Every Rose Has Its Thorn", which is the lead track on the album. A portion of the proceeds from the album will go to benefit Bret's Juvenile Diabetes Foundation by helping send several deserving kids to camp this summer. Bret, Raine and Jorja will also host the Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads "Air Guitar Super Contest" running from May 2 to May 31 on Kidz Bop's leading safe social network and video sharing site, KidzBop.com.

Bret Michaels commented: "The most awesome jobs I've ever had are being a rock star, Donald Trump's 'Celebrity Apprentice' winner, raising money for kids with diabetes and, most importantly, being a good father, so rerecording 'Every Rose has Its Thorn' with Raine and Jorja for 'Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads' was, by far, one of the coolest ways ever to combine my love for music and family: Not only do I get to rock out with my two favorite girls, but a portion of the proceeds will go to the American Diabetes Association and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It's a great track for a great cause. 'Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads' is one party you definitely won't want to miss: So bring your strongest voice, best air guitar and get ready to monster rock."

"Kidz Bop Sings Monster Ballads" includes 16 hair-band classics from the '80s and '90s sung by kids for kids, including:
