— Broadway Baby Gone NY State Elementary School Teacher Set to Produce Her Own Children’s Television Show —
Tootie’s Education Empire TV Show
Brooklyn, NY (BlackNews.com) — Masses of people know Angela Hall as a gospel recording artist on the indie IMOK Gospel Music record label. What they might not know is that this Brooklyn born native New Yorker is a NY state certified educator who is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter.com to raise capital for her own children’s TV show. Tootie’s Education Empire is a program that utilizes the arts to teach concepts and skills to upper and lower elementary-aged school children in kindergarten through sixth grade.
Angela Hall, also known as the show’s singing host “Tootie Tutelage” comments, “Tootie’s Education Empire is a new concept in children’s programming that uses skits, humor, animal wildlife visits to the set, families learning together as groups, sibling role models, cooking, experiments, and more as a means to engage the television audience. There are some fabulously singing puppets on the show that are sure to capture the learner’s interest.” Ms. Hall also wrote the original soundtrack for the show. The genres are varied and the lyrics are clever and catchy.
As a gospel recording artist, Angela Hall has appeared on BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel Hour as a featured artist. Prior to going into the teaching profession and becoming a gospel singer, this multi-faceted performer worked in show business for over 14 years. She has worked on-camera with Academy Award winning directors, the late Robert Altman and Anthony Minghella. Angela has also worked in films directed by Spike Lee, Antonia Byrd, and Tim Robbins. After touring with shows such as Big River, The Tap Dance Kid, and Lil’ Shop of Horrors, Angela worked as a featured performer in the Tony Award winning Broadway musical Black and Blue.
