Members of Little Feat, Inara George, Jackson Browne and many others are featured on this collection, singing such holiday favorites as Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Silver and Gold, Little Drummer Boy and many many more(19 songs in all).
More than 20 top music industry heavyweights have come together to contribute to Safety Harbor Kids Holiday Collection to benefit orphans and homeless children within 50 miles of Malibu. Featuring such names including activist Jackson Browne, conga queen Sheila E., rocker Billy Idol, and longtime greats such as singer/songwriter Jimmy Webb, Fred Tacket and Paul Barrere, this collaborative effort of mostly traditional holiday songs has something for everyone. The CD, mixed by Grammy winner Ed Cherney and mastered at the Mastering Lab in Ojai, boasts more than 10 Grammy’s collected by the various artists involved as well as several platinum album sellers. With contributions and support from a multitude of other stars including Peabo Bryson, Paige O’hare (Beauty and the Beast), latin crooner Andy Vargas (Santana), mariachi sensation Gilberto Morales (Linda Ronstadt), Little Feat members Billy Payne and bassist Kenny Gradney, this eclectic compilation includes many holiday favorites with a couple of interesting twists like a jazzy Rudolf, and an English/Latin version of “Little Drummer Boy”.
With proceeds going to help kids from local shelters within 50 miles of Malibu, Safety Harbor Kids teaches music, art, college, career and personal growth to the children through the power of giving. “This organizations lifeblood is the kindness of the human soul” states SHK President, Petrie Alexandra Williams, “with all these wonderful people giving to help these children, it shows that the power of giving can make great things happen. People are going to learn of the plight of these children and people are going to help. That is the point of this CD.”
