Orlando's "Kidpower Kidz" Musical Group Performs in First Radio Disney Interview to Help Children Protect Themselves

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 13, 2005 -- Children learn best when they are having fun and Orlando's Kidpower Kidz is helping to do just that. The youthful musical group recently released their first song, "Stay Safe," giving children a list of pointers, through musical lyrics, on how to avoid the danger of abduction. The group appeared in a 30-minute interview on Radio Disney with DJ Jim and KidCaster Sam to explain how they are an integral part of "Eyes of America," a project of Child Watch of North America, an organization devoted to finding missing and abducted children through awareness and education, and Kid Power LLC.

Kidpower Kidz is sending safety messages, via musical lyrics, to children everywhere to educate them on how to play it safe and avoid being a victim of abduction. It is all about kids helping kids. Don Wood, President of Child Watch of North America, said, "Music is a very powerful force in reaching young children and can be used positively or negatively. We are all too familiar with some of the music today being banned for obscenity and sending wrong messages to our youth. Kidpower Kidz uses the power of music to send wholesome, meaningful messages to children everywhere about safety and self-protection."

Inspired by the National Amber Code Alert Program, "Eyes of America" is dedicated to reducing the number of child abductions through meaningful and effective awareness campaigns, education and innovative products for families and children. A combined effort of Child Watch of North America, KidPower LLC and the nation's over-the-road truck drivers, "Eyes of America" is a commitment to find and help children in distress. Soon, every major highway in America will have the "eyes" of truck drivers assisting local police and organizations to find missing and abducted children. Eyes of America is a program that will trigger a series of events to get the trucks rolling for these children all over the world each displaying a picture of a missing child.

Kidpower Kidz and Kidsational Records' teen pop sensation TGK (www.TGKmusic.com) will be the lead performers for Florida Missing Children's Day on the steps of the Capitol in Tallahassee on September 12, 2005. The group will also be featured in the World's Largest Truck Convoy promotion in the fall.

Besides Radio Disney, the group was recently featured on KissFM Radio in Nashville and seen locally on television via WESH-TV2(NBC), Central Florida NewsChannel 13 and FOX 35.
