Biography

Keren Alexander is an enthusiastic and passionate singer/songwriter.
Coming from a very musical family, Keren’s interest in music began from a very early age. Learning the piano from the age of 4, and singing in choirs throughout her school years, Keren began to write her own songs from the age of 11. Always being asked to write for family occasions such as engagements, weddings, birthdays and more, Keren began to build up quite a repertoire of original songs. Keren’s song writing includes a variety of styles such as pop, ballads, funk, rock and children’s music.

After completing a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) Degree at Macquarie University Keren worked as a therapist for children with Autism. She also supported children with learning difficulties and special needs. Other work history included pre-school teaching, teacher's aid, graphic design, sales, hospitality, promotions, event coordination, marketing and recruitment.

One day whist working at a pre-school Keren played one of her original children’s songs for the kids. They absolutely loved it and Keren went home that day and began to really think about her 3 passions in life: “music”, “psychology” and “children”.

Keren soon went on to create, produce and promote a successful independent children’s entertainment business called “Go Seek!” Go Seek currently produces exciting, interactive, musical shows incorporating clever props, bright funky costumes, catchy music, exciting storylines, high-energy routines and frequent opportunities for audience interaction!

Within a few years “Go Seek!” went from being almost completely unknown to being super popular, playing at many of Australia’s top venues such as Club Med Lindeman Island's Kidz World, Darling Harbour, Darwin Festival and Luna Park and many more!

Keren thoroughly enjoys producing and performing in the vibrant high energy shows as well as writing the music and running the business. Keren’s children’s music is catchy, dance oriented, and very positive.

Keren also takes the “Go Seek! “shows to schools and pre-schools and has accreditation from the NSW Department of Education and Training.

Recently Keren expanded the concept of “Go Seek!” to include a range of entertainment options including, Go Seek Musical Shows, workshops, face painting & roving character entertainers which has secured a firm place in the world of positive music & entertainment for children.

Go Seek have just released their award winning "Super Strong Bones" DVD & 3rd CD called "You can do it" both are loaded with amazing songs, featuring hits like “You can do it!”, “Friends”, “Holiday Destination”, Super Strong Bones, and “Imagination”,. These fun-filled albums mix catchy beats, intelligent lyrics with great harmonies! For children who love pop music, the messages on this new DVD & all Go Seek CDs will encourage them to believe in themselves, to pretend and have fun, to think about colours, enjoy life, get active, use their imaginations, and appreciate their friends. In a world full of negativity, these are important messages to get out to kids.

Keren‘s enthusiasm and high energy is infectious. She loves what she does and always strives to consistently produce the highest of quality in whatever she sets out to achieve. Keren loves a challenge!

Keren is currently developing a children’s television program based on the “Go Seek” shows, themes and music.

Lyrics

Imagination (Full Version)

Written By: Keren Alexander

In my imagination,
I can go anywhere,
I can think anything
Imagine

In your imagination
you can go anywhere
You can think anything
Imagine

I can climb to the highest tree top
swim with dolphins in the sea below
Go back in time and see the dinosaurs roaming
dance the colours of a rainbow
Be the star in my favourite movie
It’s my chance to really shine
I can feel the magic deep inside

In my imagination,
I can go anywhere,
I can think anything
Imagine

In your imagination
you can go anywhere
You can think anything
Imagine

When I wake up in the morning
I stretch my arms and get out of bed
I know the day is waiting for me
I’m ready for adventure, there’s fun ahead

Verse 2
I think about what I should wear
Have some breakfast, my teeth are done
Put on my shoes and brush my hair!
I’m ready right now; it’s time for fun!

Chorus
Whenever we’re together
We always have a great great time
Together is so much better
You always make me smile
No matter what I do
No matter where I go
You’re my friend ---- forever

Verse3
When we go to see a movie
We always share popcorn
When it’s cold
“We take one glove each”
To make sure that we both keep warm

Verse 4
We love to eat chocolate chip cookies
We like to throw a soccer ball
We tell each other all of our secrets
I’ll help you up, if you fall

Chorus
Whenever we’re together
We always have a great great time
Together is so much better
You always make me smile
No matter what I do
No matter where I go
You’re my friend ---- forever

You’re my friend
You’re my friend
You’re my friend ---- forever

Whenever we’re together
We always have a great great time

No matter what I do
No matter where I go
You’re my friend
You’re my friend
You’re my friend ---- forever

I'm Aussie

Written By: Keren Alexander

Verse 1:
Come along, enjoy the ride
On a journey through Australia
It’s an island & a continent
South of the equator

See the Opera house & the Harbour Bridge
It’s a place of dreams & wonder
To be true blue, have a BBQ
(all) in the land down under

Chorus
I’m Aussie, I love meat pie & sauce
I’m Aussie, I love the great outdoors
I’m Aussie, Have you seen my kangaroo?
I’m Aussie, you can be Aussie too

Verse 2
Come along, enjoy the ride
Shout out a big Kooee (Kooee)
Be a swagman with his billycan,
down by the old gum tree

Play cricket like Don Bradman,
Eat vegemite on toast
Say G’day mate in the land in Oz
The place that I love most

Chorus
I’m Aussie, I love meat pie & sauce
I’m Aussie, I love the great outdoors
I’m Aussie, Have you seen my kangaroo?
I’m Aussie, you can be Aussie too

Bridge
Did you know the boomerang, was invented in Australia
Have you heard of Ned Kelly, Our infamous bushranger?
We like our steak sandwiches to have a lot of beetroot
And have you held a koala? So cuddly, so cute!

Chorus
I’m Aussie, I love meat pie & sauce
I’m Aussie, I love the great outdoors
I’m Aussie, Have you seen my kangaroo?
I’m Aussie, you can be Aussie too

Verse 3
So come along, enjoy the ride
We’ll travel to the old outback
Play the didgeridoo, under skies of blue
Follow the beaten track

Sit around the campfire, visit Uluru
The desert sand is hot
See a shooting star or a pink galah
Australia’s got the lot!

Chorus
I’m Aussie, I love meat pie & sauce
I’m Aussie, I love the great outdoors
I’m Aussie, Have you seen my kangaroo?
I’m Aussie, you can be Aussie too

I’m Aussie, you can be Aussie too
I’m Aussie, you can be Aussie too
