Inspired by Jason Paris, a dad, a musician, music producer and IT professional when his daughter Abbie turned three years old. Akin to a handmade card or a portrait, they set out to make a unique gift for her Nanna's 64th birthday. With no proper basics on singing, three-year-old Abbie sang the first singing portrait, which was aptly When I’m Sixty Four.  On Nanna’s birthday, Abbie’s song track did not fail to deliver; there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Since then, Jason Paris decided to produce a mobile app for both Android and iOS for other families to who wish to create a memorable and heartfelt song chronicles of their children growing up. Singing Portraits is committed to helping families and educators create memorable keepsakes for loved ones. Pitch: Most parents will agree the most meaningful gifts from their children are the simple ones. It’s any shared experience: a child’s face upon discovering something new, it’s the first ball caught, the first cupcake frosted, the carefully drawn picture of an otherwise normal day, now exalted, that will hang on your refrigerator for years to come. It’s those experiences and shared gifts of expression that create the most meaningful family memories. It is also the impetus behind creating Singing Portraits, developed by a dad, a musician and music teacher after he and his 3 year old daughter set out to create something special for her Nanna’s birthday.

They produced a song, starring young Abbie and on Nanna’s birthday, it left no eye dry in the room. Inspired by the response, Singing Portraits was developed as an easy-to-use, virtual music studio, designed for young children to sing, record and send a personal musical greeting cards to their loved ones. Perfect for the dad or grandfather that has everything, except maybe more quality time.

Leigh Madrid, mom, and publisher of Speculative 66 says, "LARF! Our daughters, Elora and Izzy love this app. They recorded songs for their grandparents and for my brother who is stationed overseas and had such a wonderful time. The best part was when Elora began ignoring the prompts to sing Katy Perry instead. We were going to wait to send them out for Mother's Day and Father’s Day but we just couldn't help but share them early." Singing Portraits features songs
