Straight No Chaser
I love this time of year, but 2012 and 2013 have been difficult for me. I'm looking forward to 2014 and making some positive changes in my life.
I haven't exactly been in my typical, festive holiday mood; however, listening to Straight No Chaser helps get me there. I saw them in concert in 2011, and they were fantastic, performing to a sold-out house.
I especially love the group's story. If you're not familiar with them, they're a professional a cappella group. They formed as friends in 1996 at Indiana University. In 2006, a 1998 video of "The 12 Days of Christmas," gained widespread popularity and subsequently led to a five-album record deal with Atlantic Records. The video has been viewed over 15 million times on YouTube.
Although I like their secular songs, I especially love their holiday music. Below are three of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!
