We all know that Christmas arrives earlier and earlier each year…. but October, blimey! Yes, October sees the release of MAYSA’S Christmas album…. ‘A Very Maysa Christmas’.

Ms Leak says of her project;” I’ve been wanting to do a Christmas record for years. I hope people enjoy my take on the songs they’ve heard done by hundreds of artists over the years. My biggest wish for mankind is that people truly learn what it means to love yourself. I believe a healthy self esteem is the basis for true happiness.” .

The album, we’re told, features Maysa’s distinctive readings and new arrangements of a whole host of seasonal favourites. Lead track from the album, though, is a little more obscure…. it’s a cover of Edwin Hawkins’ ‘Pray For Peace’. Diligent internet search will allow you to have a listen…. Merry Christmas everybody!
