KRISTINE W’s FIRST HOLIDAY ALBUM,
“HEY MR. CHRISTMAS”
Celebrate one of the country's most talented performers
during everyone's favorite time of year, Christmas.
LAS VEGAS, NV - Fly Again Music adds jingling groove to this year’s holiday season with Kristine W’s first Christmas album, Hey Mr. Christmas. In it, Kristine’s beautiful voice commands front and center, with her trademark rhythmic beats providing brilliant back-up. She adds dance floor spice to tastefully selected holiday favorites, plus offers an unplugged remake of her #1 smash “Wonder of It All”, performed live with legendary pianist and composer Jim Brickman. She also introduces two new holiday tunes, penned by the superstar herself. Hey Mr. Christmas is available on i-Tunes now.
Hey Mr. Christmas begins with “Mr. Christmas”, a tribute to Kristine’s assistant who fought in Iraq, and “Everyday’s a Holiday”. Both tracks were written by Kristine, in collaboration with the UK’s award-winning songwriting and production team, Love to Infinity. Then the dance music icon knocks the holiday stockings off the chimney with a remake of Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas" and an electro mix of "Mary Did You Know". She breathes new life into The Sound of Music’s "Favorite Things" with a newly written verse and a slick lounge sound; then caps Hey Mr. Christmas off with a show-stomping, diva-licious dance floor rendition of “O Holy Night”.
“Hey Mr. Christmas is happy holiday record and I’m excited to offer my fans a reason to smile this season,” says the singer.
Kristine W is beloved for her string of #1 dance floor hits including “Land of the Living”, “One More Try”, “Stronger” and “Feel What You Want”. With nine consecutive #1s, she holds the world’s record for Most Consecutive #1 Billboard Club Hits, surpassing Madonna and Janet Jackson’s previously shared record of seven.
Adding to her notable accomplishments, Kristine W is a leukemia survivor. This year, she celebrates twelve years of remission.
Kristine W is a fourth generation entertainer hailing from Pasco, Washington. After winning titles as Miss Tri-Cities and Miss Washington, and placing first in the talent competition at the Miss America pageant, Kristine went on to pursue her educational and musical dreams in Las Vegas. She headlined her own show at the Las Vegas Hilton, winning several 'Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year' awards and earning the distinction as the entertainer who performed more live shows at the Las Vegas Hilton than any other performer in its history - including Elvis.
