While other songs on their new album focus on financial literacy, the song “The Secret to Being Rich” is intended to teach kids that being ‘rich’ takes hard work and discipline, but that you can also be wealthy in many ways aside from how much money is in your wallet.
“This is one of our more serious songs for kids, but we think it’s also one of our best because it contains a message that gets lost in a lot of financial literacy instruction – that money is important, but it’s not everything,” said Christopher Morris, Disclosures band member.
Chad Helminak, the other member of The Disclosures, noted that “the title of the song and album can be initially jarring, but it’s only because we’re satirizing the ‘get rich quick’ schemes and distorted view of wealth kids might be see on TV and other places in today’s society.”
The “Secret to Being Rich” video features on-screen lyrics and outtakes from previous Disclosures videos such as the “Thank My Piggy Bank” video for kids that was released in 2013. As with all of their songs and videos, The Disclosures hope that parents and teachers use these materials to spark conversations with kids about these very important topics
“The Secret to Being Rich” album is available for download on all major digital music stores such as iTunes, Amazon and many others. Physical CDs also can be purchased at cdbaby.com, and The Disclosures also offer discounted bulk CD orders for financial institutions, schools or youth organizations.
