Singer-songwriter and recording artist, Jonathan Sprout has dedicated the past 21 years to creating meaningful and captivating "hero music" for children. Sprout began this journey in 1994 after reading the results of a nationwide poll detailing children's top 10 heroes, which included cartoon characters such as Bart Simpson and Beavis & Butthead along with several professional athletes whose off-field antics were anything but heroic. This made Sprout question, "who are our real heroes and why are we not teaching our children about their importance?" That's when Sprout's idea to write and record songs for children about real heroes was born. Since then, Jonathan Sprout has written over forty songs and has released four American Heroes albums about some of the most remarkable men and women in American history from Pocahontas to Neil Armstrong. With the help of author-lecturer Dr. Dennis Denenberg, Sprout "chose people who are good examples that children can understand and emulate."
