Congratulations to the talented artists selected to be on the 2011 9th edition of Holiday Magic, a Gift for Children of All Ages CD! It was a difficult job to do, however at last we have narrowed it down to the final 20 songs and stories to go along with the yearly CD tale which includes Santa, Mrs. Claus, Jeffery, Rudolph, Carlito, and Kate the reindeers, plus this year we meet Master Elf Thalion as Santa declares a new holiday to celebrate those who sometimes get taken for granted…the elves! You can see the track list below. And to those who submitted but were not selected, we are very grateful for the sharing of your creative talent and hope you enter again next year. We are accepting submissions year round, so why not get started now!
One of this years selected talent, Austin Bryant of Boston, MA and his band “Brothers Royale” who submitted “Just About Midnight” was diagnosed with type II diabetes in 1998 at age 11 and he tells us, “I spent some time in children’s hospital to adjust to the change in life style then went every three months until very recently. The hospital had to pretty much tell me I wasn’t a kid any more or else I would still be going. I was by far the oldest and tallest patient in their for years haha! Let me know if I can do anything to help.” You are helping Austin, by donating this upbeat, fun and festive song “Just About Midnight” which will be heard this holiday season on ABC Family’s “25 Days of Christmas” marathon in the movie “Desperately Seeking Santa.”
Another of our talented artists from Canada tells us… Take two of Canada’s top VO talent, put them in front of a class of 14 and what do you get – The Double Diva’s. Deb Munro & Elley-Ray Hennessy are a unique pair. These two ladies tell it like it is, but with humour and style (well lets just say it’s a style of their own).
Having to act like children themselves, kids hold a special place in their hearts. Together with the help of their Calgary, Alberta, Canada Students they’ve put a little skit together to say Merry Christmas to all of you, through a little story you can relate to – Social Networking!
Each student was assigned a Christmas greeting from a different country other than their own and the results are in this wonderful little clip called “Greeting from Around the World” – from the Double Diva’s Workshop!
Merry Christmas everyone!
If you would like to hear the CD it will be aired every Sunday night in December online at www.RadioFreeJMT.com. More details to come.
