Laurie Berkner’s Christmas CD is a merry mix

Santa will be filling those stockings a little faster this year with the help of Laurie Berkner’s new Christmas CD. Her renditions of 15 holiday classics like “Jingle Bells,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” are joined by three original tracks, such as the lively “Candy Cane Jane” and short-but-sweet “Christmas Lights.” All are sure to win the hearts of little ones who will recognize Berkner’s voice from her music videos that play on the Nick Jr. television channel. Do you hear what I hear? The sounds of an even merrier Christmas!
