Alicia & Elmo

So, I was working at my computer while my daughter was watching TV in the same room. I was absorbed in whatever I was working on, until she says, “Mommy, Alicia Keys is singing with Elmo!” Now, I know that Sesame Street usually books really cool guests for really clever appearances, but THIS I have to see. I turn around, and there she is: my girl Alicia at the piano with Elmo doing a revamped rendition of “Fallin’.” For about three minutes, we were completely glued to the screen: me and my 8-year-old hooked on Sesame Street, and both “too old” for Elmo. It was the coolest thing ever.

Everything stopped in the room because of something on MPT. Go figure.

What a great idea to podcast The Street! And for those that don't have video iPods, you can check out more friends of Elmo (FOE) on Sesame Street at 9:30 AM weekday mornings on MPT. Sometimes that's the only way I can keep track of current musicians & other artists. Yes, that's how I was introduced to Chris Brown... I love the new "Word on the Street" segments!
