Genie Francis Christmas CD!




Wubber Luci sent me this info after chatting with Genie in Chicago recently. I thought it would be a wonderful christmas present for any GH fan!!

Genie and her brothers have pulled together in their adult lives to create this record with the motto, "The family that sings together stays together." They agreed they wanted to make a retro style holiday record with all the familiar sounds that they enjoyed as children growing up with groups such as The Carpenters, Andy Williams and even the Partridge Family. The holiday record features rich vocal harmonies, classical guitar and beautiful orchestral arrangements of your favorite Christmas songs including Winter Wonderland, O Holy Night, a reverent rendition of Silent Night and a stunning four part a cappella version of Auld Lang Syne to end the ten song collection. "We truly hope to remind people of a simpler, happier time and we hope this record can help bring a little joy and perhaps some good memories to people everywhere thisChristmas season." says Genie


The CD,"It's Christmas Time Again" is available by digital download on i Tunes on November 1st. Look for it on Amazon.com November 5th.

Genie was approached by her cousin, Sister Margaret Slowick, who is the director of The Children's Mission in Cuernavaca, to help. Genie was so taken by this cause that she has decided to donate 100% of the profits from this CD to the Children's Mission in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
If you or someone you know is interested in the work of Sister Margaret or would like to sponsor a child please E-mail: slowick_osf@yahoo.com for more information.
I'll put up a reminder blog about this closer to Christmas time!!
