Annie Roboff and Beth Nielsen Chapman are used to working with stars. As songwriters, they have written tunes for artists such as country music superstar Faith Hill, her husband, Tim McGraw, and the late pop diva, Whitney Houston. But now the two talented friends are working with another group of stars: the ones in the sky.
Together with Rocky Alvey, who is the superintendent at the Dyer Observatory at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, they have recorded a CD called ‘The Mighty Sky’ which uses music to teach children how the universe works.
Dianne Penn caught up with the two songwriters who performed at the UN on the International Day of Human Space Flight, observed 12 April. Annie Roboff begins by explaining how the CD came about.
