Christmas Song

This is a song I put together for the Christmas Eve service at my Dad's church. The two girls singing are... hmmm... maybe they don't want me putting their names up online. Anyway, I've known them forever and I convinced them to come sing this year.

I like the way it turned out.

I was going to leave it at that, but perhaps I should explain. My dad is a minister of a church out in the country about twenty minutes away from my house. Every Christmas Eve we have a service that is mostly based on songs and special performances (mostly from my family and cousins). For the past couple years, I've written a few things for it. I think it's fun. No matter the singer, it's awesome to have something sung by real people after you've just been plugging it away on the piano until then. Parts that you had no idea would sound great sound amazing and other parts you really were excited about sound... not so great. With these girls, though, it pretty much always sounds good.

Enjoy! And Merry Belated Christmas.

Bravo, bravissimo! That was a wonderful song and I am glad the filmographer caught a minute of you playing as well. Keep up the good work.
