DEER PARK, N.Y., Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sal "The Voice" Valentinetti, Long Island native and celebrated crooner from season 11 of America's Got Talent, released an original Christmas single entitled When Christmas Comes to Town. Inspired by Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, and Dean Martin, Valentinetti's voice is ideally suited for the holiday season.
"I'm excited to be sharing this new Christmas song with my fans," Valentinetti stated. "Christmas is such a special time for my family and those we love. This song really captures not only the excitement of Santa's arrival, but the happiness of sharing these festive days with someone special."
When Christmas Comes to Town, a classic tune with a modern twist, was written by singer-songwriter, Peter Mazzeo. The track was recorded in Long Island, NY, close to Valentinetti's hometown of Bethpage, at EKO Productions. Robert Maffia and Michael Yannich acted as production coordinators. The song was produced by Billy Jolly, three-time Emmy award-winning producer/arranger, who has worked with award-winning artists including Celine Dion and P!nk.
"When I heard the demo, I knew it had Sal written all over it," said Jolly. "It's rare to hear such a vintage sound in a modern song, and there aren't many vocalists who could've pulled this off. Sal is an old soul with knowledge of the past hits and knows how to bring that into today's music."
