a special song

A good friend of mine needed to record a Christmas single for a class he's taking. He graciously asked me to record the vocals on it. I agreed to do it...really even before I knew that the song he'd chosen to record was one of my favorite Christmas songs.

Of course, finding out he'd chosen that song pretty much sealed my fate. So, a month or so ago I laid down the vocal tracks and some other friends of mine laid down some instrument tracks.

The result is, in my opinion, an excellent version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel.

But the coolest part about this song, is that my friend has decided to list this song on Bandcamp, where it is available for download. It's a name-your-price type download (where you can even put $0 as the price). He's decided that any proceeds generated from this song will go straight to the Samaritan's Purse Organization.

Here's a much more eloquent and well thought out explanation in my friend's own words:

This single started life as a project with a simple goal: record a Christmas single with my good friend and amazing vocalist, April Geiger. Now that it is complete and sounding very-nearly professional, I've decided to make this single pay-what-you-want with all profits going to benefit Samaritan's Purse in general and Operation Christmas Child in particular. I hope you enjoy listening to this song as much as I enjoyed producing it - Merry Christmas!


So, if you enjoy Christmas music, [very] indie artists and a good cause, you can click below to listen/download the song.




Merry Christmas y'all!

  8. Found you on EBEW, glad I did!

    This song is tied with O Holy Night for my favorite Christmas song, but this one is definitely so much fun to sing! This version is great, you and your friend are very talented.

    Kudos from your newest follower!
