Live Entertainment, Music and Bands
Queen Green is voiced and played by Angela Vincent. Angela and her co-author and mother, Marisa Vincent worked to create the eco-rhymes out of their love and passion for the environment, their vision to merge science and the arts to provide edutainment experiences for children, and their dream to inspire the next generation to learn about protecting the planet. Research shows that children learn important messages through repetition in rhymes and songs. So, they added a new and refreshing spin on familiar rhymes and created eco-rhymes in order to help bring awareness. Discover more about Save Queen Green on her website.
