Fuck your Halloween, Christmas has come early!
Just ahead of the October 24 release of her second children’s book inspired by her daughter, “River Rose and the Magical Christmas,” the legendary American Idol powerhouse belter has just premiered a brand new, sparkling original Holiday single called “Christmas Eve“!
To no one’s surprise, the song comes packed with twinkling bells, an angelic choir, and particularly joyous melodies — that “I’m hearing sleigh bells/ I’m seeing snow/ I’ve waited all year baby just to see those reindeer/ Watch them as they go” chant is a major earworm — resulting as a more-than-worthy companion to the festive offerings included on her already classic Christmas album, Wrapped In Red.
“River Rose and the Magical Christmas” is the Grammy winner’s second picture book, following the release of “River Rose and the Magical Lullaby” last fall. She went with a holiday theme this time around because her daughter loves Christmas so much. Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donder and Tamyra Gray! ‘Tis the season to be sleighed by Kellegend Clarkson!
