The viral song and dance sensation first came into Nationals Park five months ago when Outfielder Gerardo Parra made it his walk-up song. “Baby Shark” has now become an unofficial anthem for the Washington Nationals’ 2019 season, which resulted in the first-ever franchise World Series win.
BABY SHARK LIVE! is based on Pinkfong’s viral earworm and global dance phenomenon, “Baby Shark.” Fans of all ages will delight as Baby Shark joins up with his friend Pinkfong to take an adventure into the sea, singing and dancing through new and classic songs including “Five Little Monkeys,” “Wheels on the Bus,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Monkey Banana Dance,” and of course, “Baby Shark!”
“Baby Shark,” Pinkfong’s global hit song about a family of sharks, has climbed the charts and connected with fans around the globe. After entering the Billboard Hot 100 at #32, the song has had a 17-week streak in the Top 50 while topping the Kids Digital Song Sales Chart. The “Baby Shark” dance video has over 3.9 billion views, making it the 5th most viewed video in the history of YouTube.
BABY SHARK LIVE! is currently playing to excited audiences in theaters across the country. The fall tour leg began in Spartanburg, SC and continued on to play markets including New York, Boston, and Chicago before wrapping on November 10 in Philadelphia. Additional shows will be announced at a future date. BABY SHARK LIVE! is slated to visit more than 100 U.S. and Canadian markets through 2020. For more information, visit babysharklive.com.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
