Free Christmas Song Downloads & The Holiday Magic CD


Dec 9, 2011 Free Downloads, Songs for Kids 2 Comments

For the past 4 years I’ve collaborated with Ashley Fox Linton on creating fun, original Christmas songs for a project called the Holiday Magic CD.

Headed by Jeff Gelder in San Diego, the Holiday Magic CD every year provides children in hospitals with a free CD of original holiday tunes and stories.

Artists from around the country submit material to be included on the CD. Then Jeff and his team personally deliver it hospitals in the San Diego area and abroad (and sometimes give impromptu performances!)  Last year they delivered over 3,000 CD’s to 28 hospitals from the U.S.A. to Singapore.

It’s an incredible effort, and I’m so happy to be able to contribute a small part to the project each year.

Below you can listen to and download the songs that Ashley and I contributed from 2008 to 2011. (You may recognize Ashley’s voice from the vocal recordings of both We Are Monsters and Musicville!)

If you’d like to learn more about Holiday Magic, please visit their website and consider making a small donation to help the cause. The CD is funded purely by volunteers and donations.
