Tommy Reid, writer and organiser of “It’s Christmas” commented: “I called on a network of business owners to come together to try and add some fun and joy in what has been a very challenging year.
They all gave up their busy time to record and will give more time for the video. I approached Mark Morrison and his new Macklife Studio team to help record it and they went over and above in supporting us. We were supplied with a highly experienced vocal producer which was definitely needed! We believe this song is fun, relevant and would love to get it exposure to help raise more money for our beloved HOPE Against Cancer” “It’s an extremely Fun, relevant and smile spreading song that gives joy to all the children this year for Christmas, when there is lots of worry and concern in the world as everyday people are feeling a little anxious and scared right now”.
The theme of the song is all about Christmas spirit especially during these challenging times and how, whatever happens in between now and then,
In order to create an original song I approached Dom at Capp Records in san Francisco as I heard an instrumental on a site that I thought was perfect for what I wanted to achieve , and Dom put me in touch with Martin Stack and Mark Gamble who composed the original song, when I explained what I wanted to achieve and for what I wanted they couldn’t wait to get involved and incredibly allowed us to use the song as we wish for the charity single which I was blown away by.
Christmas is most certainly not cancelled and lets make the best of what we have. Not missing also, that some family members may be forced to celebrate alone so we mustn’t forget to call on the big day!
