Jonathan Sprout Honored with His First Grammy Nomination!
Winner of 8 National Awards!
(Langhorne, PA) – What would Thomas Jefferson say?  Or Pocahontas? Probably something like “Wahoo!”  They are just two of the outstanding Americans included on American Heroes #3, just nominated for a Grammy Award.  After twenty-eight years and seven albums in the field of children’s music, Jonathan Sprout has been honored with a Grammy Nomination for Best Musical Album for Children.  The Recording Academy’s award nominations were announced on December 2nd and the winners will be announced on Sunday, January 31st at the 52nd annual GRAMMY Awards event in Los Angeles.
American Heroes #3 is no stranger to awards and accolades, having been honored with seven other national awards so far:  NAPPA (National Association of Parenting Publications) Gold Award, Parents’ Choice Recommended Award, iParenting Media Award, Dr. Toy’s 10 Best CDs, Creative Child Seal of Excellence Award, Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence and the Dove Foundation Family-Approved Seal.
Singer-songwriter Jonathan Sprout commemorates the lives of ten exceptional Americans on American Heroes #3, the third in a series of recordings for children that highlights the accomplishments of some of America’s best and brightest citizens.  Using musical styles from folk to pop to rock, Sprout has created original songs about Milton Hershey (chocolate king/philanthropist), John Muir (conservationist), Elizabeth Blackwell (first U.S. female doctor), Dr. Jonas Salk (developer of the polio vaccine), Jane Addams (Nobel Peace Prize winner), George Washington Carver (agricultural scientist), Wilma Rudolph (Olympic gold medalist), Thomas Jefferson (third president), Pocahontas (peacemaker) and Cesar Chavez (civil rights activist).
American Heroes #3 inspires children with not only the endeavors that brought these individuals to prominence but the personality traits that made their successes possible. 
“It’s a dream come true to be nominated and in the company of great kids’ recording artists,” says Sprout.  “This is going to be etched on my tombstone!”

Sprout has performed nearly 6,000 concerts, and continues to present, on average, 200 concerts each year.
