Renowned singer/songwriter RJ Word has an early Christmas present for fans this year in the form of his new record “The First Three Hours of Christmas”.
Growing up in the heart of the entertainment industry, Los Angeles, RJ developed a passion for singing and songwriting early on, kicking off his music career by age 10 performing on stage in musical theater productions. RJ began developing his own sound with the help of renowned voice coach Roger Love. He has since released records with the likes of Rich the Kid, Juan Magán, Joe Moses & Pitbull. Building an international fanbase of millions along the way.
Typically working more in the Pop/Funk & R&B worlds, this traditionally orchestrated Christmas record is a bit of a departure for RJ. But he finds a way to throw his own jazzy-funk twist into the formula. The results are unique, captivating & overall quite charming. “The First Three Hours of Christmas” is about spending those first couple hours of the holiday with that special someone in your life before getting them back to their family in the morning; before “Santa’s Sleigh comes down”.
The song is currently playing on SiriusXM’s “Acoustic Christmas” channel and will be playing on others, like “Coffee House” as they start to play more Christmas music in December. The release features a couple versions; the original, with live orchestration that harkens back to Christmas classics like “All I Want for Christmas is You” & “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” as well as a stripped down acoustic version. An instrumental version will also be available so fans can sing along.
This is not RJ’s first Christmas outing. When he was just 16, he collaborated with YouTubers Kurt Hugo Schneider and Alex G on a “Let it Snow” mashup that has since garnered millions of views. “The First Three Hours of Christmas” will also have a music video set to be released in the next month that music fans can’t wait to see. But until then…
