“Christmas Time Is In The Air Again” Single (Mariah Carey)
Looks like I’ve got my question answered by holiday music extraordinaire Mariah Carey. YES!!! We can now play Christmas music FINALLY! Thanksgiving is over and Mariah is here to assure us that “Christmas Time Is In The Air Again“, which just so happens to be a single off her Merry Christmas II You (2010) album. I personally think Mariah Carey is the best of the best when it comes to Christmas music; her songs are so giftedly spiritual and there isn’t one of her Christmas songs that you will not fall in love with. My favorite Christmas song of Mariah’s is the signature holiday tune that’s always the number one record on the holiday charts “All I Want For Christmas Is You” off of her first Christmas album Merry Christmas (1994).
Let’s Take A Flashback From Her Very First Christmas Music Video To Her Present On; (Merry Christmas To Merry Christmas II You).
“All I Want For Christmas Is You“
“When Christmas Comes Feat. John Legend“

In the words of Mariah Carey “LET’S GET FESTIVE”!
This is Willis Earl Beal. His story is about as interesting as his music. Less than two years ago Beal, who is now 27 years old, was living in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he had been since leaving his home of Chicago, Illinois in 2007. He is an artist in many disciplines. He draws pictures, he makes blues music, and he writes short stories. While out in New Mexico he began putting hand drawn flyers around town with his name, number, and information about himself in an attempt to find connections with people, something he really enjoys doing. He has claimed he’s always been a loner and is prone to depression. He quickly linked up with a music making couple and began writing songs. He would leave his music on blank CD-R’s around Albuquerque. Before long one of his flyers made it’s way to the hands of Davy Rothbart who runs a magazine called Found which focuses on found notes and other objects. He put Beal’s flyer on the cover of the #7 Issue and the response was overwhelming for a completely unknown artist. Since 2010 Beal has moved back to his grandmother’s house in Chicago where his younger brother also lives and has also finally released a collection of his music, writing, and drawings. He has signed with powerhouse independant label XL Recordings and will release his debut album titled Acousmatic Sorcery on April 3. The most interesting part about Beal though is that he still encourages his fans to contact him. If you visit his official website at Willis Earl Beal you can get his information on how to write or call him. If you write him he will send you a hand drawn picture and if you call him he will sing you a song. I have yet to try it but his marketing tactic has certainly caught my eye. I will be waiting eagerly for his album.
