Warminster Producer Takes Home Grammy for Children's Album

Steve Pullara won the award for producing an anti-bullying compilation CD.

Warminster Producer Takes Home Grammy for Children's Album

Making a strong effort to combat the negative effects of bullying is an award-worthy venture. That's something that the Grammy voters appear to agree on, since they honored Warminster music producer Steve Pullara with the award for Best Children's Album Sunday night.

It's the first Grammy for Pullara and the rest of his team, Jim Cravero, Gloria Domina, Kevin Mackie and Patrick Robinson, who were nominated last year for Healthy Food for Thought: Good Enough to Eat.

All About Bullies...Big and Small is a collection of 37 tracks by artists like Steven Van Zandt and Blue October that tackles the topic of bullying through funny songs and spoken word pieces. The album was produced and engineered at East Coast Recording Company, located in the former NADC centrifuge building.

"It makes me feel good that people are being so supportive," Pullara told Warminster Patch . "I'm extremely grateful to all the townships that have booked me throughout the years and supported me...believing in me and what I can do. We would love to bring a Grammy home to Warminster and the Philadelphia area."

The rest of the night undoubtedly belonged to two women, Adele and Whitney Houston. After Houston's body was discovered , Grammy producers scrambled to put together a fitting tribute to one of pop music's biggest artists.

Host LL Cool J started the Grammy broadcast with a prayer and video of Houston performing "I Will Always Love You." At the end of the video montage remembering musicians that had passed away last year, Jennifer Hudson started singing an a capella version of the song and was later joined by a piano accompaniment.

The night's major awards went to superstar Adele, including Album of the Year for 21, and Song and Record of the Year for "Rolling in the Deep." In fact, Adele swept all six categories she was nominated in, including Best Pop Solo Performance for "Someone Like You," Best Pop Vocal Album for 21, and Best Short Form Music Video for "Rolling in the Deep."
