Singing helps them focus their attention on the lyrics and melodies; promoting a sense of mindfulness and reducing rumination.

From an early age, Melody’s name fit her perfectly. She sang positive songs and melodies with a voice that was both powerful and soothing. 

She wrote songs that weren’t just melodies. They were poetry filled with uplifting and encouraging words. 

She sang about the world around her and how it made her feel: the towering trees whispering secrets to the wind, the graceful animals dancing in harmony with the seasons, the vibrant flowers painting the landscape with their colors, the warm sun embracing everything in its light, and the wise owls keeping watch over the night.

In times of uncertainty and adversity, she’d sing to herself; finding strength in her own music. 

If others were struggling, she offered solace with a healing voice that soothed pain and inspired hope during the darkest hours.

Even as a child, she clearly understood the power of her music to touch people’s hearts and souls. Her songs were not just entertainment but could reach the depths of the soul. 

As the years passed, Melody’s gift grew stronger, her fame spread far and wide, and her songs became anthems of healing and transformation. She traveled the world, performing in grand concerts, and her voice resonated with people from all walks of life. 

She poured her heart and soul into every note, and her lyrics carried messages of love, resilience, and the belief that anything was possible. Her uplifting words reshaped minds and inspired hearts. 

She empowered her listeners to embrace positivity, seek growth, and find inner peace through the power of music, the strength of positive words, and the transformative nature of love.

She embodied the Law of Attraction: what you think, speak, and sing is what you will attract, so you might as well sing positive affirmations with emotion. 

This is why I wrote the songs for I SAY WHO I AM. I know from watching Melody inspire millions, that a  catchy lyric with a beautiful melody uplifts everyone, and helps children move quickly from a negative state to a positive one.

1. Psychological Benefits

Singing positive words and affirmations has psychological benefits for children. 

The act of singing itself triggers the release of endorphins, which are neurotransmitters associated with feelings of pleasure and euphoria.

Endorphins improve a child’s mood, reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being.

 2. Emotional Regulation

Empowering lyrics aids in emotional regulation. 

It allows children to express their emotions through music; a cathartic and therapeutic process. 

Singing about positive experiences reinforces positive emotions and counteracts negative feelings. 

3. Boosting Self-Confidence

Singing about self-worth and capabilities contributes to increased self-confidence and self-esteem. 

The act of vocalizing positive statements helps children internalize these messages and believe in their potential.

4. Social Bonding

Singing in groups or choirs that focus on positive and uplifting themes fosters a sense of community and social connection. 

Shared experiences create a sense of belonging and solidarity among children.

5. Mindfulness and Focus

When children sing, they are more mindful and present in the moment. 

Singing helps them focus their attention on the lyrics and melodies; promoting a sense of mindfulness and reducing rumination.

I’d like every child in the world to sing the I SAY WHO I AM songs to remind themselves that what they sing and say to themselves matters the most!

Priscilla Harris

I am Priscilla Harris; the author of the I SAY WHO I AM children’s books series. The books are heartwarming call to action guides promoting long lasting self-confidence in young people.

As a professional educator, leader, and mentor of children for 25 years, I firmly believe that uplifting words and affirmations are crucial for positive development.
Particularly in the age of social media, bullying, and peer pressure, my message seeks to celebrate the unique self.

Growing up as the middle child among nine siblings, I often struggled to find my personal identity amongst the other children. Although I appreciated my parents’ providing the essentials of a home, food, and clothes, I yearned for a different expression of love through emotional support, affirmations, and celebration.

Through the teenage years and into adulthood, I learned to intentionally create an identity forged from affirmative words. I chose to dedicate myself to creating books, songs and messages that speak life-giving words to children.

I AM a risk taker and believe that if you pursue your DREAMS with consistency, humility, joy, love and an abundance of faith with GOD, nothing is impossible! My passion shines when encouraging children to pursue their dreams fearlessly and make this world a more marvelous place for everyone.

Embrace the I SAY WHO I AM children's books series and join the movement to empower the next generation with resilience, compassion, and unwavering self-belief.
