Happy Thanksgiving.Â Â Tomorrow, Santa Claus made his first appearance at the Thanksgiving Day Parade, which means only one thing —
Macy’s is open for business!Â Â Â Uh, I mean its the start of this special Holiday season.
To me, nothing says “holiday” more than song.Â And nothing brings more joy to the children of the world than the annual Blogger Christmahanukwanzaakah Online Holiday Concert, now in its fourth year! Now, this NEVER gets old!
Last year was a smashing success.Â After the concert, our sponsors were so pleased with the feedback, that they arranged for a 45 city tour in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Israel, and Lithiuania with the entire cast!
“Bloggers Live 2008” was a sell-out in every city!Â Â And who would have guessed that our opening act, “The Five Mommybloggers” would go Platinum and #1 with their rousing version of “I Wish it Could Be Christmas Every Day?”
“The Five Mommybloggers” in the “Bloggers Live” finale.
Who will be this year’s breakout artist?
You know the rules —
Sign-up, promising to perform a Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa song, poem, or interpretive dance for the concert. Â The online concert will be published on December 17th, so please send me the file or link, either audio or video,Â by December 15th.Â Â All file formats accepted.
Look over the list of participants and try not to repeat the same songs more than twice.Â You do not have to be talented to participate.Â Â Heart, spirit, and cojones are more important.
Contact me with any technical questions.
This has been a year of ups and downs for many of us in the blogosphere.Â There has been much sadness.Â The holidays will be hard for some of us because it is so focused on celebration.Â I hope the concert will be an uplifting voice for those who need it, and symbolic of a peaceful and healing 2010.
And now, as master of ceremonies, I open up the curtain to the sign up sheet —
