Platinum-selling pianist-songwriter Jim Brickman releases his latest Christmas CD “The Hymns and Carols of Christmas”. His latest collection of holiday-themed music includes familiar classics like “Carol Of The Bells,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Hark The Herald Angels Sing,” “Joy To The World,” “ O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Noel,” “Upon A Midnight Clear,” and many more. The 17-track album, with 2 Philippines only bonus tracks, features the catchy single “Christmas Is” with vocal performance by Canadian superstar Mark Masri. Our very own Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez has her own rendition of the same track included as a bonus track in Brickman’s album. Another bonus track is Brickman’s popular composition “The Gift”, interpreted by John Trones.

Jim Brickman revolutionized the sound of Adult Contemporary music with his pop-style solo piano and the romantic popular song. His remarkable career includes six Gold and Platinum selling albums, three #1 and twelve Top 10 Adult Contemporary radio hits, consistent debuts at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s New Age chart, a Grammy nomination in 2003, SESAC “Songwriter of the Year” award, a Canadian Country Music Award for “Best Vocal/ Instrumental Collaboration,” a Dove Award presented by the Gospel Music Association for “The Gift.” Along with his career highlights, Jim's best-known compositions include the chart-toppers “Valentine,” “Destiny,” “The Gift,” “Love of My Life,” “Your Love,” “By Heart,” “The Love I Found In You,” and “Peace.”
