There’s been a lot going on! I can’t wait to tell you about it, but first, right now I need to fill you in on some holiday info. Can you believe it’s that time again?? I know, it seems early for this. But I wanted to give you this info before things get hectic. It’s always nice to start a busy season off on the right foot.
All year long I get requests for sheet music, and usually I can’t be of much help. I don’t have sheet music for most of my songs. But I’m always happy when November comes around and I can say, “Yes! I have holiday sheet music!”
Are you planning a religious program, fireside, or nativity? Perhaps some of these songs might be of help.
I co-wrote a song with Tyler Castleton about Mary, the mother of Jesus. It’s called, “I Just Knew.” You know that song, “Mary, Did You Know”? Well I think she did, from the moment she laid eyes on that baby, and probably before.
Have you ever felt just a little bit sad that the only thing we ever usually say about Joseph, Mary’s husband, is that he was not the real father of Jesus? I’ve thought a lot about him and who he must have been in order for God to choose him to raise Jesus. I wrote a song about it called, “The Man Behind The Scenes”.
Want to hear my favorite arrangement of The First Noel? It’s the arrangement that Tyler Castleton did for my Christmas album.
Christmas has a lot of symbols. Trees. Wreaths. Berries. Deer. Elves. Santa. My favorite has always been the Star. I wrote a song about it called, “One Star”.
You can find sheet music for all of these songs, and even a performance track for “I Just Knew”, over on my music page. Here’s the link. Gifts sheet music
If you’re interested in this, I often share excerpts from the following amazing Jeffrey R. Holland talk when I share these songs in a religious setting. This is my favorite Christmas message of all time. I love how it personalizes the people and events we’ve heard about so many times.
Maybe Christmas Doesn’t Come From A Store
Not a performer? Just kick back and let me sing the songs to you. You can find all of those songs and several more on my Christmas album, “Gifts”. I’m offering it this year $5. This is an amazing deal for a full length album. You can only get this deal directly from me or my website. You can find the album on iTunes but it will be full price there. When you order it from cheriecall.com the shipping is free.
If you need 10 or more “Gifts” albums, I can make it $3 each. To get that deal, go directly to paypal and send a payment to email@example.com, and make sure you include a note specifying how many CD’s and where I’m sending them. If you’re ordering over 20, I’ll bet I can give you an even bigger deal. Contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work it out. I can also include copies of my new album, “Homeless Songs” in the packages I send from my home. The price on those is $10 each if you’re ordering them with Christmas albums. Shipping is free on those packages. And I’d love to sign the CD’s for you.
Speaking of my new album, if you have a music lover on your Christmas list, consider getting them a copy. Or you could drop a subtle hint to a friend that you’d love one of your own. For individual copies of those, the easiest way to get it is at https://cheriecallmusic.bandcamp.com You can even listen to many of the tracks there to see what you think.
But wait! (Did I sound like an infomercial guy there?) Are you saying you’d like one $10 Homeless Songs and one $5 Gifts? Just go to paypal and send $15 to email@example.com. Let me know where to send them and who to autograph them for. Put “Combo Deal” in the notes. Don’t like all this newfangled paypal business? Send a check to Cherie Call, P.O. Box 281, Spanish Fork, UT 84660. Shipping is free.
Whew! That’s a lot of info. I have even more info to bestow upon you about all of my upcoming holiday events! Super excited about that and when it is all finalized, you’ll be the first to know.
Have a happy Halloween and get ready for an amazing Fall and Winter. See you soon!
