SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Alt-pop contemporary singer-songwriter Jennifer Saran has teamed up with legendary producer Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin) to release two fresh, original holiday singles "Merry Christmas To You" and "Soulful Christmas" to fill your stocking this season.
Released through Narada's Tarpan Records label, the songs follow up last year's full length holiday album Merry Christmas, You Are Loved, which was an intriguing mix of brand new originals penned by Jennifer and Narada as well as some well-chosen covers, all of which revolve around the central themes of love and family around the holidays.
These new songs were born from Saran's great love of Christmas and a desire to add to the American Christmas songbook. Saran said, "As a little girl growing up in Chicago, Christmas was a big, warm, and exciting mystery. In nursery school and kindergarten, we all felt the love and joy around us, and the anticipation of Christmas morning was mesmerizing. As an adult, preparing for Christmas, I still always feel like that little girl, and every moment of the season holds that joy and anticipation."
Narada added, "Christmas is our favorite time of the year! We had a ball putting these two songs together off of the upcoming album for our Tarpan Records Recording Artist Jennifer Saran! Hope you enjoy and have a very Merry Divine Christmas."
