Album Notes
“Celebrating life through song!” That's a passion and a mission for singer, songwriter, recording artist, and publisher Tekelia Kelly. The once history-making "Memphis Music" recording artist of the 80's signed with world-class and renown recording facility Sounds of Memphis Studios in Memphis, TN, now lives in hometown Chattanooga, TN. Her “Merry Christmas” song collection performed at special events and occasions, and on recordings mark the debut of her independent label David's Daughter Publishing and rebirth of her vocal artistry. “Merry Christmas is a collection of specially selected songs that I feel celebrate the life, love, and sentimental expressions of people during the Christmas season. Love is the ultimate gift! It is the very reason for the “first Christmas gift” Jesus Christ. Love! That's what Christmas is! For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life! says Tekelia. Whether it's a live performance or a music recording Tekelia's playlists give way to her versatile style and melodious sounds, as she sings across the genres--standards, jazz, blues, gospel, spirituals and more! Her vocal artistry also speaks to her enjoyment of singing classic songs from the 20th century.


Merry Christmas (The Christmas Song) was like a trial-run or beta test for me, to prepare for future CD Baby DIY (Do It Yourself) productions! Done truly in a “Christmas rush” to meet CD Baby deadline for releasing the single before Christmas. You'll probably hear that in my voice. LOL!!! Nonetheless, it was a joy to do! Looking forward to the next project!
