Children's music artists don't have the record company clout or nationally promoted high profile of rock and rap stars, so when a handful of the best get together for a concert, it might not seem such a big deal. But if any children in your life have even a passing acquaintance with the top talent scheduled to perform in the fifth annual "Sunday Funday" musical blowout Sunday in West Hills, you'll know it's a rare opportunity to see a stellar lineup.

Toss out the Play-Doh. Joanie's music is maturing. Or so it seems. In her latest release, "Adventures With Family and Friends," children's singer Joanie Bartels gets further away from the baby-and-preschooler sound of her first recordings, opting for a sophisticated pop-rock blend. The bubble-blowing hippos and rockin' dinosaurs have been replaced by original and cover tunes that salute self-reliance, relationships and maybe--cootie alert!--romance.

A child's transition from preschooler to grade-schooler can be a trying one. Stomachs churn, nerves strain, tears flow unchecked. And that's just the parents. The way children's singer Joanie Bartels sees it, with all the changes that take place in the early school years, a kid could use a friend to depend on for comfort, entertainment and a much needed ego boost. And music, she says, makes a mighty fine friend.

Since 1985, Joanie Bartels has sung about a million kids to sleep, awakened them in the morning, tickled their funny bones, kept them company in the tub and then crooned softly as they drifted into Dreamland once again. And she's not even a mom. Bartels, 36, is the engaging soprano voice behind the "Magic Series" collection of seven children's tapes released by Sherman Oaks-based Discovery Music.

Two pigs, Lord and Lady Bacon, were renewing their wedding vows. "We are gathered here to link these sausages in holy hamhock," intoned the minister.
