Rachel Cole Holiday Album

$5,635

68

Why a holiday album? Well there are 2 reasons: 1. Last holiday season I was realizing how much I enjoy listening to certain songs during that time of year and how special they are to my family and to me when we hear them. Holiday music always puts us all in such a happy mood and we have certain traditions throughout December when we put on the holiday playlist and enjoy those distinctive songs that add so much joy to our season of celebrations. 2. The world, especially our country, is experiencing such a divisive time right now, and I really wanted to find a way to try to bring people together, in spite of what appear to be their differences.  I believe that one way to do that is through music, especially music that honors several of the holidays observed during the Winter, not just one.  The holiday season is a time of gathering together with family and friends and bringing light into the darkness of December.  It is my hope that this album and its music will be a light to you, the people you love, and to the world around us all. 

Risks and challenges

If we fail to make our goal, unfortunately I will not be able to cover the cost of the album myself, since I am no longer actively working due to the multiple bomb scares at my previous place of employment. This means that production of the album would be postponed a year and be released for the 2018 holiday season.
