Listen: 'What a Wonderful World'
Lead singer Karen Peris of the innocence mission turns American standards into lullabies on the group's sixth CD, Now The Day Is Over.
The members of The Innocence Mission met in high school, taking part in a production of Godspell.
Peris says she has sung songs such as "Moon River" and "Over the Rainbow" to her children since they were born.
The CD was recorded over two weeks in the summer of 2004, influenced by a common love for the 1960s recordings of artists such as Astrud Gilberto and Vince Guaraldi, and the soundtrack to the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.
A portion of the CD's proceeds will be sent to Catholic Relief Services.
