Hear me sing ‘It’s A Marshmallow World’…even though I don’t even like marshmallows.

       Yup, it’s true.  I do not like marshmallows, I never did.  In the rare occasions that we would have cook outs I would eat a couple for solidarity’s sake.  I’m not saying I absolutely loath them…but I’m indifferent to them and do not actively seek out this tasting experience. However…I do like this song.  For years I would…

O Little Town of Bethlehem Cover

Finally, I have covered a Christmas that really has something to with the true meaning of Christmas! I was getting very frustrated in finding a song that was appropriate for my style of singing and held a deeper meaning than snow and jingle bells.  I have a kind of ‘Dean Martin’ type voice that sounds better when I’m singing something…
