SINGER DOES THE TALKING ON ADS FOR IMMUNIZATIONS

SHARE SINGER DOES THE TALKING ON ADS FOR IMMUNIZATIONS

Anita Baker has a new video out - but she's not singing in it.

The vocalist taped a 30-second video and two radio ads Wednesday in Lansing, Mich., on the importance of childhood immunization."I'm flattered and very happy to do it, mainly because I can identify with the target audience - mothers," said Baker. She has two boys, 1 1/2-year-old Walter Baker Bridgforth and 3-month-old Edward Carlton Bridgforth.

In the TV ad, children play around Baker while she sits in a rocking chair in a powder-blue nursery and talks about why kids need shots.

Baker has sold 15 million albums and won seven Grammys.
