Get in the Holiday Spirit a little early this year and be part of Rosanna’s first Christmas Album to receive EXCITING REWARDS!
Christmas has always been my favourite time of year, and having the opportunity to put my own unique interpretation on classic holiday tunes and to write original songs about this special and sacred time would be an absolute dream for me! In fact, ever since I released my last album “Let There Be Peace” in 2010, many of you, my kind and supportive fans, have asked me if I could make a Christmas Album. It’s been a recurring demand in my email inbox and at my live performances. So, I was thinking that if we worked together, we could actually make this happen!
I’ve already spent a significant amount of time and money to record 5 tracks that would go on this Christmas album, which I plan on calling “The Gift of Christmas”. One of the songs I’ve already recorded is a beautiful, romantic Holiday Duet written by and performed with Juno Award Winning Pianist/ Songwriter Stephan Moccio (Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Nikki Yanofsky) and also featuring International Recording Artist Mark Masri. I also plan on involving my amazing team of musicians like Kevin Laliberte, Drew Birston, Chendy Leon, Christabel Pinto, and Juno Award Winning Engineer, Michael Haas. There are also plans to have Gemini Winning Composer/Orchestrator/Producer Glenn Morley (Gino Vannelli) and Songwriter/Producer Chris Bilton (Marc Jordan) to collaborate with me on the writing and production of the album. The entire project is also going to be presented by Toni Young of the reputable Las Vegas based music marketing and management company, Rogue Artists Entertainment.
As you would suspect, to involve such reputable industry professionals in this project comes with a significant expense, but it will definitely produce an extraordinary product that you will want to listen to over and over again, and will be proud of being a part of. That’s right…to make it happen, I need you to be a part of this great project. I need your help in raising $35,000 to cover the remaining costs of putting together this full-length album, such as additional recording time, musicians, producer, engineers, mixing and mastering, CD pressing and packaging, etc.
The great news is that you’ll be entitled to really fun and cool rewards for your donation/pledge amounts, like signed copies of the CD, free tickets to concerts, being able to vote on the songs to include in the album, being invited to the album cover shoot and recording sessions, and more! Just imagine, you could have a 8-piece orchestra at your own Christmas Party, or you could get the recording session and photo shoot package and give the best Christmas gift ever to your tween daughter/son, cousin, or niece/nephew who is an aspiring performer! Check out the pledge level packages to the right for more details.
I know it seems way too early to be talking about Christmas, but putting together a full-length album is a long and involved process that requires us to get started now in order to have these CDs ready in time to be hanging in your Christmas stockings this December. Just to give you a sense of how things would work, here is the planned schedule for the album:
February – April:
• With the kind and generous support of my fans, we raise $35,000 to cover all the remaining costs of producing the album.
• Songwriting, creating the arrangements, and determining the repertoire for the album
• Go in the studio and record the album with my fantastic team
• Mix and Master the album
• Photoshoot for the album cover
• Design the album packaging
• Send the CD Master to the manufacturer for pressing
• Send the CDs to radio promoters, vendors, etc.
• Release the album in time for the Holiday Season! YAY!!!
Please pre-order my Christmas album today or select one of the other cool pledge levels, and know that every single cent you give will go directly towards creating a spectacular Christmas album. Remember though, it’s important that you spread the news because if we don’t make exactly the target dollar amount (even just a penny short), no one will be charged and there will be no album!
Your support is greatly appreciated!
Thank you and God bless!
