Heavenly Skies & Lullabies features physician Kathy Reilly Fallon and restaurateur Frank Pellegrino wearing their performers’ hats and lending their voices to spare arrangements of 11 soothing lullabies for this book-and-CD package. All net proceeds from the project will go to World Vision, a Christian relief organization, specifically for the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. The illustrated book contains a foreword by Father Gerard Critch of the Diocese of Venice, Fla., and also includes a number of brief, child-friendly prayers as well as music and lyrics for each selection. Among the favorite lullabies on the recording are “Golden Slumbers,” “Hush Little Baby,” “Toora, Loora, Loora” and “Gaelic Cradle Song.” (Heavenly Productions Foundation, www.heavenlylullabies.org , book-and-CD, $25 ages 2-8 ISBN 978-1-933626-06-2; Dec. 2006).

Dr. Kathy Fallon, a foot and ankle surgeon with a social conscience, has created a charitable opportunity to raise funds for the child victims of Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Fallon is a Board Certified foot and ankle specialist in New York City. She has previously published a recording, Heavenly Lullabies, to benefit babies and orphans of September 11, 2001. Proceeds of this CD go to the Twin Towers Orphan Fund. Working with Dr. Fallon on Heavenly Skies & Lullabies were actor/restaurateur, Frank Pellegrino, a star of The Sopranos and proprietor of Rao’s Restaurant, the renowned, tiny Harlem restaurant, where Hollywood stars reserve one year in advance. Mr. Pellegrino has appeared in films by Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese, and he has published two popular Italian gourmet cookbooks, that coincide with his private line of quality food products. Canadian-born Father Gerard Critch served three years in the West Indies, to assist victims of Hurricane Hugo, and six years in ministry in Antigua. He has also served in numerous Dioceses, including New York and Florida.
This illustrated song book, another philanthropic venture of the Fallons and friends, has some of the most exquisite color drawings, by Becky Kelly, designed to enchant both children and adults alike. With eleven delightful songs and lullabies, some renowned, such as Rock-a-Bye, Baby and Hush Little Baby, and some lesser known, such as Cradle Song and Golden Slumbers, children and guardians can follow along, page by page, verse by verse, and sing, hum, or listen to richly recorded renditions. Dr. Kathy Fallon has a professionally vocal quality, nurturing and comforting, in clear, precise lyrics. Frank Pellegrino, film star of Goodfellas and Manhattan Murder Mystery, restaurateur, and actor in The Sopranos, must be heard in his excellent performance as narrator of Spoken Prayer, in tandem with Dr. Fallon, and as vocalist in Little Man, You’ve Had a Busy Day. He speaks and sings with strong, soothing sensuality and persuasive persona.
