Jack Norton is a successful children's entertainer, television producer, EMMY Award winning songwriter and early childhood education expert. He is the co-creator of The Zinghoppers, a children's band with a television series airing on over 100 PBS member stations nationwide and in 175 countries to over 1 million viewers daily. Norton writes, co-directs and co-stars as the friendly "Conductor Jack".
Jack's love of hip-hop, electro dance and bubble gum pop music has a huge influence on the Zinghoppers music. Parent Magazine described the band as, "Barney meets the Black Eyed Peas".
An advocate for early childhood education, Jack is a much sought after public speaker with a passion to help teachers incorporate music and movement in the classroom. Norton is also dedicated to the Zinghoppers social responsibility program which focuses on bringing smiles to children in hospitals and underprivileged children through uplifting entertainment.
The victim of a debilitating auto accident a few years ago, Norton gained almost 175 pounds while bed ridden for several years. Since launching the Zinghoppers brand, Jack has lost over 95 pounds simply by performing his high-energy musical show at live events for families and switching to a plant-based diet. Norton loves to encourage others to achieve their dreams, visualize their destiny and make healthy eating choices.
Norton lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife Kitty. Together they work tirelessly to achieve their dreams of making the Zinghoppers the #1 Children's Entertainers in the World.
