‘Christmas’ comes early
The Hunger and Health Coalition is now offering “Christmas in
the Mountains Vol. 5” at more than 70 locations in our area.
The $10 cost of the CD will help the coalition’s mission to end hunger in the High Country.
Executive director Compton Fortuna said $10 can help feed a family of four for one week.
“The number of clients we are working with is unprecedented,” she said. “One out of seven children in North Carolina goes hungry.”
“Christmas in the Mountains” is a community project, as the performers and project managers donate their time and talents, and more than 70 retail locations give up counter space to the sell the CDs.
The new album features “Can You Remember?” by Sound Traveler, “The Lights in Our Village” by the Kruger Brothers, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Alexis Worthington and Tyron Young, “Blue Christmas” by Matthew Weaver, “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” by Jessica Presnell, “Judah’s Land” by the Blue Ridge Vocal Ensemble, “Silver Bells” by the Todd Wright Trio, “Sweet Little Jesus Boy” by Diana Wilcox, “Christmastime at Home” by Sharon Mitchell, “In the Bleak of Winter” by Steve and Ruth Smith, “Silent Night” by Andy Page and “Christmas Appalachian Style” by Amantha Mill.
