Spirit of Christmas Deluxe features several Christmas classics, including “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and “Silver Bells,” just to name a few. Also included are show stoppers like “O Holy Night,” “I Wonder As I Wander” and sure-to-become-classics like “Give Love On Christmas Day” and the title cut, “Spirit of Christmas.” The remake of the Whitney Houston classic “Who Would Imagine A King?” is another welcome addition to this stellar recording.
“This recording is very special to me,” TaRanda explains. “People always ask for classic Christmas songs, so that is what we wanted to do. With five of the songs having a three-piece band, we wanted to take the listener back to a time when life was much more simple; when kids popped popcorn, strung it around the Christmas tree, and the family snuggled around the fireplace and reflected on the true Reason for the Season, the birth of the Christ Child. This recording was so much fun to record, and I hope the listener enjoys the finished product as much as I enjoyed recording it.”
For years, TaRanda has been inspiring listeners worldwide with her authenticity, energy and unmatched vocal ability. This latest recording effort will no doubt offer listeners even more inspiration. Spirit of Christmas Deluxe promises to offer much listening enjoyment throughout the 2019 Holiday Season and quite possibly for many years to come.
Spirit of Christmas Deluxe is distributed by Sony/Provident Distribution and is available worldwide on all digital music platforms.
