Kidz Bop sings Monster Ballads is set for release and will feature a guest appearance by Bret Michaels and his daughters Raine and Jorja Michaels. Here are the official details we were sent along with info on a contest:
The three will appear on a (yet another) new version of the Poison hit "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," which is the lead track on the album. A portion of the proceeds from the album will go to benefit Bret's Juvenile Diabetes Foundation by helping send several deserving kids to camp this summer.
Bret, Raine and Jorja will also host the KIDZ BOP Sings Monster Ballads "Air Guitar Super Contest" running from May 2 - May 31 on KIDZ BOP's leading safe social network and video sharing site, KIDZBOP.com.
Bret Michaels commented, "The most awesome jobs I've ever had are being a Rockstar, Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice winner, raising money for kids with Diabetes and, most importantly, being a good father, so rerecording 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn' with Raine and Jorja for KIDZ BOP Sings Monster Ballads was, by far, one of the coolest ways ever to combine my love for music and family: Not only do I get to rock out with my two favorite girls, but a portion of the proceeds will go to the American Diabetes Association and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It's a great track for a great cause. KIDZ BOP Sings Monster Ballads is one party you definitely won't want to miss: So bring your strongest voice, best air guitar and get ready to monster rock."
As part of the Super Contest, kids can upload videos of themselves to KIDZBOP.com to show Bret Michaels the most rockin' air guitar riffs and vote for the performers they think have what it takes to be the next Rock Superstar. The winner will receive a "Back Stage with Bret Michaels VIP Pass" monster prize package, including a trip to see one of Bret's upcoming concerts with a parent or guardian, special meet & greet with Bret and a Jorja-Raine acoustic guitar, specially designed by Bret for his new Dean Guitars' Signature Series.
