Let's have a drawing!! :-)

Today is December 1st. That seems like a good day to give away some Christmas music for you to enjoy over the next several weeks. :-) And this CD is a good one for doing just that.

For those of you who have not heard of Yancy , she is a young, contemporary Christian singer/songwriter and author who's sound I would equate with Demi Lovato. "Little Mark" says she reminds him of Pink, but he isn't allowed to listen to Pink. ;-)

"Little Mark" came home from church camp with two of her CDs, and pre-ordered the Christmas CD. He has been playing it since October, and I have to say that while he and I differ on our taste in music (me usually yelling "turn that stuff down") I like Yancy. She is fun, energetic, and has a good voice and great Pop sound, but is not "overpowering" like a lot of mainstream female singers today.

The songs are a mixture of traditional Christmas carols and contemporary favorites, but all performed in a very fun and modern way. Yancy penned two songs: “Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas” and “Christmastime”. Both are sure to become staples for many Christmas’s to come. The song "The Greatest Gift" is being played at radio across the U.S.

It's definitely one of those CDs that the entire family can enjoy. :-)

Track listing:

1. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
2. Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas
3. Wonderful Christmastime
4. Joy To The World
5. Christmastime
6. The First Noel
7. Medley: Jingle Bells, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree, Feliz Navidad, We Wish You A Merry Christmas
8. Angels We Have Heard On High
9. O Come All Ye Faithful
10. The Greatest Gift

I think my favorite song is "Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas." I really like the energy and joy I get when listening to it, and being reminded of THE reason we celebrate Christmas. :-)

Yancy has been nice enough to send me a copy to give away in a drawing. So, to win all you need to do is leave a comment, and make sure I have a way to get in touch with you to let you know if you won. If you have a blog, link back to it, or leave me an e-mail address. This drawing is open to EVERYONE.

I will draw for the winner on December 8th, that way you are sure to receive it in plenty of time to enjoy during the holidays, or give as a gift. :-)

If you would help "spread the word" on your blog or facebook wall I sure would appreciate it. :-)

If you would like to just go ahead and purchase the great CD you may do so at www.amazon.com
from Yancy or from iTunes.

Love,
Wendy Darling
