Hello Everyone / Bonjour les Amis!
It's been just too long since my last album and I needed to come up with a new project. Christmas songs came to mind last year as I was listening to all the regular Holiday songs out there. I thought t would be nice to come up with some new ideas for the Holiday season, and singing Classics in both English and French sounded like the natural thing for me to do.
Thanks to my awesome musician friends, Jay Sweeney, Steve Hansen and Joe Meo, I think we came up with an amazing medley of Christmas songs, each with their very own twist, in French or otherwise.
Jay Sweeney honored me with the singing of his song "I Believe in Christmas Eve", and I hope audiences and fans will find it to be a new classic for Christmas time. We thank God always for showing us the way.
