About Mister G
Ben Gundersheimer (MISTER G) is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist, and educator. Hailed as “a bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post, he tours internationally playing everywhere from Lollapalooza and Lincoln Center to climate change rallies on Capitol Hill. His spirited bilingual performances aim to help children see each other across borders and foster cross-cultural connections.
Ben has published two picture books with Penguin Random House, which are based on his original, bilingual songs. His first release, Señorita Mariposa, chronicles the extraordinary migration of the monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico, while Lilah Tov Good Night is a lyrical lullaby celebrating the beauty of the natural world and the spirit of resilience in a refugee family.
Ben performs annually on Capitol Hill as part of the Play-In For Climate Action, an event that spurs legislators to fight for climate safety, keep toxic chemicals out of our homes, and put an end to the corruption at the EPA. He has also performed at the National Climate Rally. He has written numerous songs about environmental issues and has been commissioned by the National Forest Service to address the critical role that bats serve in the stability of our ecosystems.
