Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Ariel, Zoey & Eli, Too (AZE2), a musical variety show that is driven by three siblings, empowers children to accomplish their goals and their dreams. AZE2 accomplishes this through interviewing people who excel in their profession and have a positive message for kids, introducing guests who perform different genres of music, and presenting musical performances by the cast members themselves. These cast musical performances show children they can write their own music and the importance of teamwork. Music on the show is produced by Emmy Award winner David Barrett. He and Brian Brill (another Emmy winner) ensure that the music is tailored for the young audience. All songs offer a positive message about life. Every episode begins with the song "Sweet Company" which sends the positive message of friendship and ends with the singing of "End of Another Day" which encourages the viewer to stay optimistic about tomorrow.
