ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gina Hayes is a gifted singer/songwriter from San Antonio, Texas. Her voice has been compared to both Anne Murray and Karen Carpenter. Her dream has always been to record and release a Christmas project, but with her own style and touch. "I'm very proud and touched by the response of A Holiday Collection," says Gina. "I wanted people to enjoy and listen to the CD and to be blessed for years to come".

Listeners are in for a treat with new and fresh, contemporary jazz spins on both "Carol Of The Bells" and "Auld Lang Syne". Although recognizable, it comes apparent that these songs have been given new life and style. "Ave Maria" is done it it's most traditional and popular Bach/Gounod version and is simply beautiful and reverent. "Jovonie-A Christmas Angel" comes from a real life situation in which a 4 year old boy named Jovonie died of abuse and neglect on Christmas Day in 2003, starved and tied to his bed while his family celebrated in the other rooms. Gina took first place in the San Antonio Express-News "Carol Kings" Christmas carol contest in 2005, after writing and singing "Jovonie-A Christmas Angel". The mother of two sons herself, Gina says she was haunted by images of Jovonie as she decorated her Christmas tree with ornaments that featured pictures of her own children. "It was such a terrible, tragic story. No one, especially a child, should die that way." The song was officially recorded for this cd release to ensure that Jovonie's memory will live on and to shed light on the tragic, senseless consequences of child abuse.

Feedback for "A Holiday Collection" have included comments such as "I love the jazzy version of "Carol Of The Bells", as well as words like "Gorgeous, Beautiful, Fantastic, Phenomenal, Excellent, Relaxing and Inspirational".
