Goodnight Angel was recorded in 2001 by well-known entertainer Kathie Lee Gifford. This album is a collection of beautiful and touching lullabies written by Gifford and David Friedman. Between the soft music, soothing words, and gentle voices, this is perfect music to help ease a child off to that magical land of sleep. With that in mind, the album was set up so the first songs slow things down and comfort, and the middle tracks are even slower, with lyrics that tell about dreams coming true. The closing tunes on Goodnight Angel are the softest, telling of the love that a parent feels for their child. The lyrics strum the heartstrings more than a little. These lullabies are the kind that can last through early childhood, from nights of rocking an infant to sleep in your arms to tucking that active toddler into a real bed to nights when he or she is tired out from a long day at kindergarten. Some of the lovely songs on this album are "My Child," "I Wish I Could Keep You This Way," "Angel Baby Mine," "Rockabye Lullaby," and "Hey Little Dreamboat."
