En écoutant la chaine YTV , je suis tomber sur une publicité d'un nouveau disque du projet Mini Pop Kids , un projet qui offre à certains jeunes de faire parti d'un groupe qui interprètent des chansons d'artistes connues au Canada repris avec des voix d'enfants , je crois que Rakugaki a un des CD il vous en parlera un peu plus , je m'y connais pas beaucoup dans ce projet.

In Watching to the channel YTV , I came across an publicity for the new album for the project Mini Pop Kids, a project that provides some youth to be part of a group who singing this songs from artists known in Canada resumed with children's voices, I think Rakugaki a CD he will talk a little more, I do not know much in this project.

Mmm, I don't know more. The covers are not fantastic, just ok. But I just have the 1st CD.
They released 5 CDs now. You can order them here : http://www.minipopkids.com/

I think that's a cheap project. Some covers kids projects are better, as the UK choirs T.I.V.C. for example.

Is this a newer version that a Canadian Company took over? I thought that Mini Pops was an 80s thing from the UK?

The older productions of Mini Pops, as well as these newer productions are SO VERY MUCH like the Kidz Bop productions, who I have known of for a few years. I actually had been considering making a thread on them. Maybe I should put them here, since they are so similar. Maybe you guys can tell me if I should just add them here or make a separate thread.

Unfortunately, they also have this in common with the Kidz Bop thing. It seems more than any other kid singer thing I come across on Youtube, these groups of videos get a lot of viewers who either obviously don't like children singers, or are very critical. Both of these Productions get lots of negative comments. The amazingly stupid thing is that they are usually along the lines of they ruin this song or that song or something like that. It is as though they are surprised that the kids do not sing as good as the older teen or adults that originally sing/write them. Some of the comments get quite mean and even personal, such as their appearance. In the case of the UK Mini Pops, the idea was to have the kids look like the original performers. This draws the comments that the Girls look too grown up. I really don't understand or agree about this and I just get pissed off, so I guess I should just not read the comments.

As could be expected with a production with so many kids and a variety of ages and songs, the quality is uneven, but I think for the most part, the kids sing in tune and are OK or good singers, with a few of them being quite good. I myself have seen very little that I thought was 'bad'.

For now, I will just put a couple things I found on Mini Pops. I will take your guys/girls advice on whether I should do a separate thread for Kidz Bop.

A retro song and video by Mini Pop Kids. Rock and Roll Medley.


If you look at my newest post on Priscilla, you will see that I posted her singing this song with Julien. It is a song from the Movie/Stage musical Grease, best known by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. This is more of 'cute' singing. The Priscilla/Julien is better, but maybe some will enjoy this.

Mini Pops in the UK was started by Martin Wyatt. He got the idea after his preteen daughter Joanna had a hit in France (do you remember Rakugaki?) with a remake of Stupid Cupid.

Since what I have posted so far is much older than the new releases introduced by Tai, I will not put any more here unless I get some comments, including from Tai, that it is OK that I post on this predecessor to the Canadian Production.

You don't have to cry, it's ok. Very Happy
I don't think there's any relationship between Mini Pop Kids from Canada and those Mini Pops in the UK. Btw, I never heard about those UK band. Razz

Sorry, I was typing big and bold so everyone would see and make comments. I wasn't sure if I should continue on this post, because even though it goes by the same name as the 80's UK thing, I was thinking it didn't really have any connection to the Canadian production and I did not want to turn Tai's thread into something different unless it was Ok with him or if a few others told me it was a good idea.

By the way, it wasn't a UK band exactly. It was a regular t.v. show that I think was just on for one year. It featured many different preteens doing covers and trying to look like the original adult artist.

Kidz Bop looks quite good. It looks like no-one made a separate topic.
For now at least I think more could be said about them here...

Let it Rock video on the official site. I quite like it.

Hey AndiKiwi, that is a great video and site you posted. I like the song very much and the kids all look like real stars. My only complaint is that you can't really tell who is singing. They show many kids singing, but the voice does not really change. It may be a group effort throughout and that is fine, but I always like to hear solos or duets anyway, and know who it is I am listening to. Still love it though.

This is a major enterprise with a lot of CDs and videos, so I guess I should make a separate thread. I will try to do that this week.

I have just come across this site and noticed there is mention of the Mini-Pops in Canada. I have been managing Saveria, one of the Mini-Pops, for a few years now. The singers all do have their own songs on the CD. There are a few songs that have them singing as a group. Saveria has been on the last 3 Mini-Pop Cd's. She started when she was 9 and has just turned 12 2 weeks ago. The Mini-Pops produce a CD every year and along with it a commercial which is shown all across Canada. I will start a seperate thread on her and post her website address and other information.
