The upbeat, high energy remix version of His Kidz United, Volume 1, the first release of a music brand for kids ages 5-14 that features kid-sung versions of today’s top Christian hits, including “Overcomer” by Mandisa, “Shake” by MercyMe, and “Speak Life” by TobyMac, released yesterday at the His Kidz United website and through major retailers. In addition to the retail release of His Kidz United, Volume 1 (Stereothief Remix), the danceable remix of “Hallelujah” is also available as a free download at HisKidzUnited.com.
His Kidz United, Volume 1 (Stereothief Remix) is distributed by INgrooves and Capitol Christian Distribution through major retailers, including Amazon, Family Christian Stores, iTunes, Lifeway, Mardel Christian Stores and Walmart.
The His Kidz United, Volume 1 (Stereothief Remix) album is perfect for kids’ fun and dance, workouts for moms, or an upbeat background for the daily grind at home or work. For a preview of all 18 songs, visit YouTube.com/RemixSamples.
“Church youth groups will love using it for a pre-event energy boost,” says Jimmy Swan, executive producer of the project. “I think it’s the best remix CD you’ll find on both Christian and Children’s music shelves. Our team really outdid themselves on this one! We can’t wait for you to hear it!”

The remix version follows the April 29 launch of the His Kidz United CD series, which released Volume 1 and two digital versions–a sing-a-long version and an instrumental version of all 18 songs on the project. Additionally, all products are bundled and available at a discount at the His Kidz United website.
The His Kidz United series is slated to release four new volumes per year. Each album offers 16 popular favorites plus two bonus originals.
Parents of four themselves, His Kidz United founders Jimmy and Mai Swan recognized a gap in the supply of uplifting Christian music kids can truly appreciate. A labor of love transformed the best of CCM into an album with which their own children would quickly fall in love.
“Up until now, there have been no other products like His Kidz United CDs,” says Swan. “Why wouldn’t parents want to invest in positive Christian music for their children? And while the music is focusing on kids ages 5 to 14, we’re finding that young adults and even parents enjoy listening to the music, too!”
All of the tracks were recorded and produced at the Neighborhood Arts & Music School (NAMS) in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas, with NAMS students performing on the series. Proceeds of His Kidz United CDs benefit the Dallas NAMS.
Swan felt it was paramount to have a consistent group of kids performing on the series, and his friendship with the school’s director, Levi Bradford, made the collaboration a natural fit.
“Kids listen to kids,” says Swan. “Parents are careful to teach their kids about ‘stranger danger.’ When an adult approaches a kid, they tend to get shy. But the minute another kid enters the room, there is an instant connection. As a parent, I want to impact my kids with spiritual messages and let them rejoice in the Lord. What is the best way to do this? Let them connect with their peers!”
“Our goal with this series is to give kids an opportunity to be encouraged, inspired and drawn to the Lord through the powerful tool of music, and give them something to relate to,” Swan says.
