My buddy Dee Snider has a new release coming for the holidays.
dee has teamed up with Lzzy Hale to record his song “The Magic Of Christmas Day (God Bless Us Everyone)”.
The history of this song is pretty interesting.
According to Blabbermouth Dee said the song that was “Originally written and recorded as a Christmas gift for my wife Suzette with no plan for commercial release, years later ‘The Magic Of Christmas Day (God Bless Us Everyone)’ was discovered and recorded by Celine Dion for her holiday record ‘These Are Special Times’, which went on to become the biggest selling holiday album in history — and is the reason we refer to her as ‘Saint Celine’ in my house. When it was recently suggested that I should finally record this song myself, I knew I needed to bring in a young powerhouse vocalist to not only duet with me, but light a Yuletide fire under my ass! I only knew of one rock vocalist who could deliver on all those fronts, and she did in spades: the incredible Lzzy Hale of HALESTORM!”
Dee is no stranger to Christmas music having done the album “A Twisted Christmas” with Twisted Sister.
The album featuring “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” which Dee said inspired “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and another duet on “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” with Lita Ford.
Check out Dee and Lzzy’s duet below plus Celine Dion’s version of the song and the Twisted Sister Christmas selections mentioned above as well.
