About the author: With a background in music that reads like an industry Who’s Who list, award-winning author, Grammy® Award-winner Bunny Hull began writing for children when she was searching for books and music that embodied the universal principles she wanted to teach to a youth group she volunteered to start in Los Angeles in 1993. She’s never looked back.
Hull’s beginnings as a top vocalist include work on more than 200 albums with greats including Michael Jackson (Thriller), Quincy Jones, David Foster, Baby Face, Ricky Martin, Celine Dion, Bette Midler and Jimmy Buffet, to name a few. As a songwriter she’s perhaps best known for hit songs like 2008 Dove Award Winning song Ready For A Miracle by LeAnn Rimes or New Attitude, which catapulted Patti LaBelle to the top of the charts in 1986 and won a Grammy Award as part of the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack. Hull has earned more than 20 gold and platinum albums with songs and/or as a vocalist appearing on soundtracks and in films such as Evan Almighty, Bruce Almighty, The Prince of Egypt, Losing Isaiah, A River Runs Through It, Leap of Faith and Miss Congeniality. Her work for television includes NBC’s The Today Show, Oprah, the Super Bowl, Sesame Street, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Everybody Hates Chris, Any Day Now, Kings Of The Hill, Charmed and The Simpsons and national ad campaigns include Harley Davidson, Jenny Craig and Verizon.
Hull’s passion for working with children took her in a new direction and those first few songs for a volunteer youth group have turned into a publishing catalog of more than 150 original children’s songs and a wall filled with awards for books and music, which have been embraced both in secular and non-secular worlds. She’s dedicated a huge part of her life to using the arts to make a difference in children’s lives, having created curriculum and having taught residencies and workshops in public schools in Nevada and California. Her love of the arts has lead her to perform on the national mall in Washington D.C. for thousands from over sixty countries for the Child Art Festival and walk the Halls of Congress with representatives of NARAS for Arts Advocacy Day to raise awareness and increase funding for the National Endowment of the Arts.
Hull is an animal lover, hiker, a grill master, world traveler and a collector of arts of Africa, Native and Latin America. She currently resides in Los Angeles where she continues to be a student of life and a lover of learning.
