The Rhythm of Life, is the second album from Classical-Crossover Soprano Joanna Forest, who shot to fame in 2017 when she became the very first independent artist to go straight to Number 1 in the Official Classical Album Charts with a debut album.

The album takes the listener on musical story-telling adventure exploring a typical day in the life of a child through 12 glorious familiar tracks, from “When You Wish Upon A Star” to “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” and “Because We Believe”. The concept was driven by the scientific evidence that shows how music has a very positive effect in the development of children and the mental wellbeing of all.

This wonderfully nostalgic album brilliantly captures Joanna’s talent, vocal range and refreshing approach to the genre. It will bring joy and fond memories to families, parents and children alike. The Rhythm of Life features crossover artist Paul Potts, children’s presenter Andy Day, the Arts Symphonic Orchestra, Arts Voices which feature the country’s top choral singers and musical theatre professionals, as well as children’s choir All the Arts Theatre School. The album is released in time for Mother’s Day.
