MusicTAP is very pleased to present a new holiday song from a true musical legend: Dion. This new track, “Hello Christmas” features Amy Grant on backing vocals and harmonies with Joe Bonamassa on guitar and available through Mr. Bonamassa’s label, Keeping The Blues Alive.

According to Dion, “Hello Christmas” came about in this manner: “I was talking with a friend about how the world this year can use a little life-giving love and harmony. I told him that Christmas was the grace that changed my life and that I was looking forward to a shot of that this year. The next day, I got together with [co-writer] Mike [Aquilina] and I picked up the guitar, started singing and words started to flow. Later, I was walking with my buddy [and co-writer] Steve Bottari and he started singing along — with some new words. The song just seemed to write itself; a gift to finish off this challenging year. From the start, I heard Amy Grant’s voice on it; she just sounds like Christmas to me. I sent the track to her and she fell in love with it and added a beautiful counter-melody which makes it really sublime.”

A welcomed musical Christmas gift for all!

“Hello Christmas” is currently available on all streaming outlets.
