The ultimate Holiday collection only from MCA


MANILA, Philippines – The best music this Christmas season is from MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines).

Check out these holiday releases that are guaranteed ‘must-haves’ this yuletide season:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY — an album of standards and traditional songs produced by David Foster, finds Rod Stewart joined by a number of A-list guests, starting with Michael Bublé, who duets with Rod on “Winter Wonderland.” “We Three Kings” is a duet with Mary J. Blige; and the title tune “Merry Christmas, Baby” is a duet with Cee-Lo Green featuring New Orleans’ favorite son, Trombone Shorty. “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” features Dave Koz on saxophone and “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” is a very special ‘virtual’ duet with Ella Fitzgerald featuring Chris Botti.

35 years after the success of “GREASE”, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have reunited and combined their iconic voices for THIS CHRISTMAS, a newly recorded album featuring Christmas favorites with guest artists such as Barbara Streisand, Tony Bennett, and James Taylor! All of the songs are Christmas standards except for “I Think You Might Like It,” which is a newly penned song by John Farrar (Olivia Newton John’s long standing writer). Travolta and Newton-John have committed to donate the artist proceeds from the album equally to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

Christina Aguilera, Michael Buble, Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews and Train are among the acts helping Special Olympics celebrate the 25th anniversary of its A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS album series. Since 1987, the A Very Special Christmas (AVSC) album series has literally changed lives by generating over $100 million in direct support for Special Olympics programs, thanks to the generosity of more than 130 top internationally acclaimed recording artists. Other artists involved in the project include Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, Cheap Trick, Natalie Grant, Sidewalk Prophets and Jamie Grace.

André Rieu presents his favourite Christmas tunes on high quality DVD. Together with the Johann Strauss Orchestra, soloists and choir, André Rieu performs 26 holiday classics in his snowy, beautiful decorated garden across the street from his home. In front of his fireplace, Rieu tells a Christmas tale and explains the viewer how he celebrates Christmas with his loved ones. HOME FOR CHRISTMAS includes special guest performances by The Royal Choir Society Mastreechter Staar, The Sjamaes Children’s Choir and 10 year old ballerina Rosa. A lavish celebration, this DVD affords a glimpse of André’s fabled castle, with the whole concert set outside the castle. This is the MOST LAVISH André Rieu DVD ever. Also available is André Rieu’s latest CD, DECEMBER LIGHTS, which is André’s very own selection of the world’s most beautiful Christmas classics. From the sacral “Silent Night” and “Ave Maria” to beloved classics like “White Christmas” and “Go Tell It On The Mountain”, this album is a celebration of life, light, peace and music.

101 CHRISTMAS: 6 CDs for the price of 1. All your favorite Christmas songs from the classics to modern titles, from Bing Crosby to Michael Jackson, from Connie Francis to Vanessa Williams — one hundred and one songs to ring in the holiday season.

These albums are now available in CDs at Astroplus, Odyssey Music & Video and Fully Booked or online via iTunes or www.MyMusicStore.com.ph
