The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear

In his semi-eponymous movie, Buddy the Elf famously explained, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." 

Today, I'm choosing to use my valuable internet space to spread some Christmas cheer of my own. Please don't worry, it's not me singing, which would spread whatever the opposite of cheer is. Instead, it's my resident songstress, Norah Marie, who used her iPhone to self-record and mix this lovely (IMHO) cover of "Jingle Bell Rock."

Norah recorded this for broadcast on WJCU as part of its NEORock! Christmas show, which airs Monday night from 8 - 10. It's part of this weekend's 48 Hour Virtual Music Fest / WJCU Virtual Blizzard Bash. Norah is playing Sunday evening from 6 - 7 via her Facebook artist page and which is raising money for the Hunger Network. Visit her stream to hear "Jingle Bell Rock" and a dozen or so other non-Christmas tunes live.

Enjoy the holiday music, and please have a safe, healthy, and homebound weekend.
