Holiday Tunes with Aaron

Welcome back to ArtBeat Radio!

Today we have, special guest, Aaron! Aaron loves Christmas and especially Christmas music. This year, with the help of his Music Therapist, Aaron was able to create his very own Christmas album. Aaron started off by choosing some of his favorite Christmas songs to include on his album, He wanted the album to alternate between fast songs and slow songs, so he had a good combination of both. Aaron and his Music Therapist recorded each song by singing together over Zoom. The Music Therapist then edited the recordings together with backing tracks, to finalize the songs. This was a long process for both Aaron and the Music Therapist, but all of their hard work payed off in the end. He has chosen four songs off of his album to share on the podcast today, the first song Aaron chose is “Blue Christmas.” Next up, you’ll hear “White Christmas” both Aaron and the Music Therapist sing this song as a duet. After this, Aaron chose to share “Santa Clause is Comin’ to Town,” this is Aaron’s very favorite Christmas song and it was a lot of fun to record! Finally, Aaron chose to end this episode with “Holly Jolly Christmas,” another duet between Aaron and the Music Therapist. Aaron wants to thank all of you for listening to his Christmas music and wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Welcome back to ArtBeat Radio! Today, we hear a special holiday episode from Jenny! This isn’t just any ordinary holiday episode. Listen in as she shares her thoughts on lyrics, and why she feels like we need to hear them during this time.

0:44 “Underneath the Tree” by Kelly Clarkson, covered by Jenny

You're here where you should be
Snow is falling as the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need
Underneath the tree
Tonight
I'm gonna hold you close
Make sure that you know
I was lost before you
Christmas was cold and grey
Another holiday alone to celebrate
But then one day everything changed
You're all I need
Underneath the tree

2:40 “I Feel Love” This is a cover of a song from the movie, Benji

I feel love all around
I can feel it shining down
It lights up the day like the morning sun
Reaching out and touching everyone
I feel love all day long
Like a promise, like a song
And it's feeling good like I knew it would
Everywhere I go, I feel love
I feel love, yes I do
I can feel it, so can you
It's a rainbow washing rainy skies away
Bringing back another sunny day

4:30 “Jenny’s Dream” This is an original song written by Jenny

Happy birthday jenny

It's gonna be a great day

I am asking for that we stop selling animal products, cigarettes and alcohol

We don’t have to fight

Were just living right

I want to see a world where food and water is free

We have to try to come together and work as a team

We can go together forever we have brothers and sisters and I love all them

So come and try to share and care

Thank you

We would love to give a special thank you to Jenny for her amazing work, and beautiful drawings for this album artwork!

Relax

Park Day

We won’t be back for a while

I want to stay and play hide and go seek all day there

We won’t be back for a while

I want to stay and play hide and go seek with my best friend Emilio

Ba ba da da

On a sunny day I see a big garden

Flores, amarillo and orange

A field of grass

Lots of fun stuff

Ba ba ba ba

And we won’t be back for a while, no we won’t be back for a while

We won’t be back for a while, no we won’t be back for a while

We won’t be back for a while
