The WiSH Education Foundation will partner with KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer and author/animation legend David Feiss to debut the duo’s new children’s book and storybook app, “Ernest Hummingbird,” at Barnes and Noble in Valencia Saturday, March 31 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
In a music-infused reading, sing-along and book signing, “Ernest Hummingbird” will take flight with a little help from Santa Clarita/Valencia residents Sara Rowe and Sara Niemietz, who will join Thayer and Feiss for the event.
Sara Rowe is a budding tween star in Hollywood, known for her appearances as an actress on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Henry Danger,” “Awesomeness TV” and “Dreamworks TV.”
Sara Niemietz achieved fame as a standout singer for PostModern Jukebox, and was first discovered by Ellen DeGeneres and featured on “Ellen.” She has also performed on SCVTV’s “House Blend” music and interview show with host Stephen K. Peeples.
The two Saras will join Thayer, who wrote and produced the music for “Ernest Hummingbird.” Feiss will also be on hand for the book signing and sing-a-long.
“Ernest Hummingbird,” created by Feiss (“Cow and Chicken”), is a children’s story of a lovable young hummingbird named Ernest who wants to sing and not just hum. The book is paired with a storybook app (available on the Apple Store) and is narrated by Darius Rucker, country music artist well known for his Hootie & the Blowfish fame.
Barnes and Noble is located at 23630 Valencia Blvd, Valencia 91355.
