    Hardcover Description:

    Jimmie Allen, multi-platinum selling recording artist and the first Black musician to win The Academy of Country Music Awards New Male Artist of the Year Award will publish his debut picture book, My Voice Is a Trumpet (July 13 pub) with veteran illustrator Cathy Ann Johnson. The book is a powerful story about speaking up for what you believe in, at any age.

    In My Voice Is a Trumpet all voices are as diverse as the characters and heard loud and clear. From voices that roar like a lion, to voices small as a bee, all it takes is confidence and a belief in the goodness of others to change the world.

    “It’s very important to me that kids learn at a young age that they have a voice, and that it is powerful. It is up to us as adults to teach them to use their voice to encourage and show love,” says Allen. “Being a father of two kids, I try to encourage them to be themselves and love everyone around them. I’m hoping this book inspires at least one child and they always remember their voice is a trumpet.”

    Coming at a time when issues of social justice are at the forefront of our society, My Voice Is a Trumpet is a pertinent and poignant book that gives children confidence in the power of their voice from a young age and the knowledge that all voices are valuable.
