I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
HEIDI TANN IS BACK TO BRING YOU A HOLIDAY GIFT AS PROMISED, SHE TAKES ON TO DO A COVER OF ONE OF THE MOST LOVED CHRISTMAS SONG OF ALL TIME,” ILL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS”. She chose this song as she feels a strong connection and it brings back so much memories of her childhood days growing up in the Philippines during this season of gift-giving and connecting with her loved ones.
“I’ll Be Home for Christmas” was originally written by Kent Gannon and composed by Walter Kent in the early 1940s, and was recorded by 1943 by Bing Crosby, but it was what was going on in the world at that time- World War II, that made it such an emotionally evocative melody, as well as the most requested song at Christmas U.S.O. shows in both Europe and the Pacific and Yank, the GI magazine, said Crosby accomplished more for military morale than anyone else of that era.
It’s a tune that simultaneously is able to remind millions of people of what a blessing it is if they’re lucky enough to have family close by and children still in their homes, and how having loved ones return home for Christmas, especially our young adults who have ventured out into the world for the first time, is really the best gift of the season.
The song was produced and arranged by Bobby Gomez, Tony Garviz on guitar, Bruno Nesci on bass and Santiago Kurchan on sax, with background vocals by Bobby Gomez.
The song is set to release on December 1, 2021 on all music platforms and available to download on her website at: www.heiditannmusic.com
