It's September 23, a very busy day for Laurie Berkner.  Her new album Superhero is released today, featuring a bunch of brand-new original songs and duets with folks like Ziggy Marley, Kira Willey, and Brady Rymer.  (You can read more about the album in this interview with Berkner.)  She's launched a Kickstarter project to bring 5 concerts featuring her to hospitals and special needs schools.  Berkner is donating her time, so the Kickstarter money will help pay for all the other stuff -- sound crew, travel costs, etc.  (You can donate CDs to hospitals, get signed CDs, and superhero capes, among other cool swag.)

One of those things would be enough for a Friday morning, and two is a lot, but why not do a third thing?  So Berkner's debuting her video for the album's title track today.  The song's got a zippy, catchy chorus and features cute kids wearing capes.  That's enough for me and probably the nearest preschooler.
