We’ve got another Christmas download for you this week! It comes from Mark Harris’ new album “Christmas Is”
Read below for some thoughts from Mark about the meaning behind his new album as well a special video message!
“I’ve always loved Christmas music and everything that goes with the holiday season, and my goal was to create a warm, intimate, simple production environment so that the music could be about the song itself. I think the one thing that I really felt good about on this particular project is that, at the end of the day, what matters is knowing who you are and trusting that you have been commissioned to do the project you are doing. This Christmas album came from a very honest place where God had me, and I hope that as people listen to this record, they can feel they’ve had an encounter with God.” -Mark
For Mark, one of the most rewarding aspects of recording “Christmas Is” was the opportunity to sing with his thirteen year old daughter, Maddison. The day before he went into the studio to record the CD’s title track, he decided he didn’t want to sing the song alone. Maddison had been leading a worship service at her school, and Mark had noticed her voice’s growing strength; having her sing “Christmas Is” with him “made the album,” he says, “because the innocence in the message of the song came through her voice.”
