In light of the pending holidays, one of Rockfords most sought musicians, Carl Cole, is releasing a holiday CD with not only Christmas songs, but also secular holiday tunes. Carl Cole is joined by his vocalist wife Dianna Cole and his son Andrew Cole, who is in charge of the electronic drums and the mixing and mastering of the album.
Carls Carols includes such classic Christmas songs as O Come, All Ye Faithful, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, and Away in the Manger, accented delicately by Diannas soft voice as she sings with her husband.
The CD progresses to more popular and modern tunes such as Ill Be Home for Christmas, Im Dreaming of a White Christmas, and Walking in a Winter Wonderland, recorded in fresh arrangements.
Carls Carols rounds itself off with an instrumental medley by Carl at the piano and, finally, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Mr. C puts the soul back into Christmas with this latest work, and will be performing holiday songs at Media Play Friday Dec. 19, from 7 to 10 p.m. as a promotional endeavor. Copies of Carls Carols can be purchased for $10 at the event with proceeds benefiting Sound of Good News Youth CD and video projects.
