There's no denying that broadway stars Max von Essen & Julia Murney have incredible voices, whether it's in Wicked, The Wild Party, Les Mis, Evita, or Fantasia, these two have dazzled audience goers for decades. In thier new Christmas single however, of which all proceeds go to the Covenant House International, they create something truly magical; they create something Divine.
Their voices blend easily like gold and platinum, his smooth and resonant and hers clear and ringing. Like bells on Christmas morning the song stirs something inside the listener. A classic carol with a beautiful new arrangement, it's familiar enough to make you start listening but it's different enough to make you keep listening.
