While you may not know the name of Riley Clemmons, chances are good that your kids do.

Today she releases her first self-titled album with Capitol CMG.

Seacrest Studios in Clemmon’s hometown of Nashville played host to a release date visit earlier today. “Better For It,” “I’ll Stay,” “Broken Prayers” and a cover of Charlie Puth’s “The Way I Am” were among the songs she performed for children at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Clemmons preceded her release date with a live performance from SiriusXM in New York City.

Hitting Atlanta, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver, Charlotte and more, Clemmons will join friends Danny Gokey and Tauren Wells for the 30-city “The Hope Encounter” Tour this September.
