The word ‘Christmas’ has become an increasingly popular and inclusive term for Christmas celebrations across the world, and we’re proud to have Darlen Nemo and the New Zealand Christmas Theatre as our Christmas Singers.
We know how important it is to celebrate the birth of Jesus, as well as the joys of family and community.
Darlena is an artist and performer who is renowned for her amazing voice and her versatility, and her new album Dear Darlan Nemo is the perfect complement to her holiday music.
The New Zealand songwriter will perform the album on December 25th, 2016, and she’s got some Christmas tunes in her repertoire that you should check out, including this amazing cover of ‘I’m In Love’ by the National.
“My favourite Christmas song is probably ‘Darling, Darling’.
I love how it brings people together,” Darlens mom, Linda Nemo, told Business Insider.
“It’s a really good way to celebrate.
You can also hear it in the song ‘Auld Lang Syne’.
You’ll find that in my repertoire too.
It’s really nice to have songs like that in there.”
She also said it’s important to keep the song alive, because there are so many Christmas songs out there that don’t make it into the Christmas Singing series.
“I think it’s a great way to keep people singing it and to remind them that they’re still alive, that there’s more to life than just the holidays,” she said.
“But it’s also important to remind people that it’s not all about the holidays, it’s really about the love and the community and how you can find each other, and that everyone has a story.
It is so important to me to keep Christmas alive.”
The New York Times recently called Darlenes music ‘a holiday anthem, a celebration of the joy of family, a way to bring people together.’
We’re thrilled to welcome her to our ranks.
Listen to her new Christmas album, Dear Darsong.
