Today’s post is something a little bit different. Today I’m not bringing you a recipe or a tutorial . . . I’m bringing you news about an INCREDIBLE contest being put on by one of my favorite stores in the world – Cost Plus World Market. It’s an incredible opportunity for the winner to record a track of Santa Clause is Coming to Town with a top Hollywood music producer, PLUS a fat gift card to the fabulous store, PLUS it celebrates my favorite kind of music — CHRISTMAS MUSIC! (Oh, and there’s a video of me SINGING in this post. Eeek! So read on if you’re curious to hear yours truly – PLUS my hubby sings too!) 🙂
Do you love Christmas music? I LOOOOVE Christmas music! I have been singing since I was a tiny little girl, so I love most music, but I have a soft spot for Christmas music. During the month of December there is a constant festive soundtrack going on in my home.
I am always excited to discover new Christmas music to add to our collection, so I was pumped to find that Jessie J was putting out a new Christmas album! Have you heard her sing Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town? You can hear it in the ADORABLE new holiday commercial from Cost Plus World Market! Watch the story of a little boy who seeks to find Santa Claus’s favorite cookie, and ends up finding a gift much more thoughtful instead. The spot features an original recording of “Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town” from UK recording artist and 2018 winner of China’s Singer, Jessie J. The girl can SING! (You can purchase her new Christmas album HERE.)
Speaking of singing, can YOU sing? If so, then you should definitely enter to win the World Market Star Maker Contest! You can win a trip to L.A. to record a track with a top producer, PLUS you’ll get a $1000 World Market gift card! SCORE!
Here are the nitty gritty details about the contest:
