Serling, Elaine

American. Born in Detroit, Michigan. Wayne State University, in nursing. An experienced educator and singer/songwriter. In 2001, she won the “Jewish Woman in the Arts” award for contributions as a songwriter, performer and Jewish educator. She has made an impact not only in the Midwest, giving concerts to children and adults for over thirty years, but has published a song book, Sing and Celebrate: Jewish Songs for All Occasions (Danza Publications, 1987) with a CD available. Elaine’s songs teach about Jewish life and themes in an upbeat, yet non-insipid fashion, with varied arrangements. While most of the songs are in English, she mixes Hebrew and English in holiday and other songs. Her second CD is “Join the Circle” (Danza, 2002). Elaine is an ASCAP and published songwriter. Elaine Serling lives in West Bloomfield, Michigan. Elaine teaches nursery school, creative dance and confirmation classes. She has served as a choir director in the Detroit area. A Summer, 2000 article in Jewish Woman Magazine (published by Jewish Women International) stated: “With a flare for today’s musical tastes, Serling engages her audience with her warmth, energy, and imagination. By combining original Jewish songs with traditional Jewish music, she pleases every musical palate.” Serling has a very pleasant, strong voice, and her CD’s appeal to young children, from toddler’s to early elementary years. Her website contains clips for listening from her CDs. Elaine can be contacted by email:
