Aria’s stirring, heartfelt track, A Christmas Letter, reinforces love and connectedness in a time when Christmas has taken on new meaning and significance in the wake of recent worldwide events.
In April 2022, Aria released The Next Life, a song dedicated to the environment and endangered animals. The Next Life generated 200,000 streams, over a million views, and charted in Italy and Australia.
A Christmas Letter is a classic song in the Motown/gospel style that was recorded in South Africa at the historic Downtown recording studios in Johannesburg. It was mixed by Jack Rouben out of Los Angeles (I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Earth, Wind & Fire).
It features Afro American singer Sherita-O (Boney M.), The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Macedonian children’s choir, Heruvimi. The lyrics were written by Cambridge author Nicolette Turner.
The piece is dedicated to women and their children. On such an important day, many women are away from home for work and have to leave their families behind. Our hearts are with those who have to provide essential services to the community: hospital workers, hotel employees, artists who have to perform often far from home, and many others. It is also a song for peace, something very current and important; think of the women of Ukraine.
A Christmas Letter is on radio today and available to download in online stores.
