NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 828 Records is proud to announce that award winning AC/Pop artist, Jimmy White has again released his heartfelt and timely Holiday single and video, "I Wish You Peace".
"I Wish You Peace" is a wonderful song about the importance of loving one another, caring for your fellow man and the world around you.
Over the years, "I Wish You Peace" has become an annual Holiday video staple at almost 50 music video outlets and networks across the nation.
On how he wrote the song
"'I Wish You Peace' came to me one November morning in 2007 when I was reading a magazine that said every three seconds, someone in the world died of "hunger related causes," White reflects. "I sat there stunned. I went into my studio and out came this song, as if from another dimension.
I really did NOT write it for any holiday at all, but the theme of 'Peace' did seem to fit the longing of so many people for a world of greater love and compassion, which sadly are more frequently expressed only during the holidays.
"It immediately went to No. 1 in every smaller market where it was released. It subsequently became the most added record in the country on both Billboard AC and FMQB AC, and has resided in the Top 10 of numerous stations every holiday season since.
The purpose of 'Peace' that I felt that November morning was never for anyone to remember me, or the song. It was simply to remember....to care...to do something about the fact that...'Almost every moment, a starving person dies.' You would think that would be something that we could never forget."
