We’ve all been to or heard of those auditions where 50 kids show up and sing the same three songs over and over again. Even though there aren’t too many songs for a child’s range, these are 10 suggestions for kids.
When I say kids, I mean 6 to 13-year-olds. So, up to the end of middle school. If your voice has already started to develop or you’re in high school go check out my other lists.
This isn't from a musical but it's from the 1986 Don Bluth movie, An American Tail. If you're a kid reading this, just ask your parents what this is. By this point in the movie, Fievel the mouse has been separated from his family immigrating to America from Russia. Then he and his sister sing this little duet knowing that someday they will be reunited.
This one is way more emotionally deep than "Tommorrow" from Annie and more proactive than "Castle on a Cloud". I loved the book Matilda when I was a kid. The musical has featured some amazingly talented kids. So if you are a little girl or have a little girl, try "Quiet" from Matilda.
Here's another song from Tuck Everlasting. After Winnie's adventure and time with the Tuck family, she has to decide between waiting five years to drink from the spring that made the Tuck's immortal and run away with Jesse Tuck or, take Angus Tuck's advice and live a full and fulfilling life. It's a very mature song for a kid. Not like "All that Jazz" mature but that it causes them to think.
This one is a bit of a wild card. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was written for a school in London as a 20 minute "Pop cantata". The use of a children's choir in many productions including the 1999 movie have been used. This musical was originally written for children so many of the solo's are written for a child's vocal range.
