It is December 9th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
She may have been featured earlier this year, however, her original Christmas song, which she just released, was one that needed to be featured.
Christina Perri is a name that is becoming [very] familiar by now. If you are a huge fan, such as myself, then you will know she recently released a brand new Christmas EP, appropriately titled A Very Merry Perri Christmas on October 16th 2012. On it is six absolutely beautiful songs. And, the very first track, Something About December, the only original track on the EP, is getting this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
To be quite honest I have no idea what to say about Christina Perri anymore. I feel as though I have expressed my love for her talent in my last article.
At [just] twenty six years old, this Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native has gone on to blow the minds of everyone, all around the world. A lot may know her from her breakthrough hit, Jar Of Hearts, that she released in 2010. Since then, her career, as well as her fan base, has been exploding, everywhere.
It may be crazy to believe her fame started when her song appeared on the popular show So You Think You Can Dance in 2010. However, since then, she has accumulated over two million fans on Facebook, several hundred million views on Youtube and more. Now, Christina Perri is certainly becoming a household name to most.
So, when she announced she was releasing a Christmas EP her fans went nuts, as did I. If you know anything about this young lady you know that her voice is something that always gives you the chills, as well as leaves you speechless.
A Very Merry Perri Christmas has five beautiful covers, including John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 1971 hit, Happy Xmas (War Is Over). On top of that song, she has a few known Christmas songs such as Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. And, although each song is [obviously] phenomenal, her original song, Something About December, is one I cannot explain.
Since I first heard the EP earlier in November, while I was actually decorating for Christmas, I have had Something About December on repeat. Written with her brother, Nick Perri, in July of 2012, the song depicts the Perri family Christmas. The lyrics of the song are also amazing, creating constant imagery as you listen.
So, it is clear why Christina Perri is getting the 'Song of the Week' spot for Something About December. If you have yet to pick up her EP make sure you do. No Christmas is complete without this beautiful EP to go alongside one of the best holiday's of the year.
As if the EP was not fantastic enough, Christina released an official music video for Something About December, this week's 'Song of the Week', which contains real home videos of her and her brother. The video can be found on her official Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday for another 'Song of the Week' article to be announced. Before then, pick up A Very Merry Perri Christmas and get ready for this Christmas season.
