She has always celebrated the signiﬁcance of a blessed Christmas by taking an extended break over the holiday period, shutting down all her business interests, making time to reﬂect on what is and who are truly important in this lifetime; to relax, laugh and share the simple things in life at home, spreading love with those nearest and dearest.
Lindsay Butler OAM, Peggy Gilchrist and Shaza are amongst the best and most experienced country session players in Australia and to hear them adapt to and interpret this beautiful Christmas arrangement is divine.
It is rare to unearth an inspirational new song about Christmas and Australia’s First Lady of Song has lived up to her title, delivering a track worthy of inclusion in any Christmas collection.
Merry Christmas, take care of you and please spread the love – HEAR THE ANGELS
