Sargent Tucker (ST) Re-releases for the holidays a single and video titled “Christmas Unites the World.” ST’s motivation behind writing this composition is deeply rooted in spirituality. ST states “As an adult, he has a sincere desire to create music with a purpose, music that brings people together, enriching folks to project something positive into the universe. The essence of ST’s “Christmas Unites the World” is about spreading world-wide peace, sharing the spirit of love, unity, and togetherness.
The song is envisioned with mystical hope of all human beings achieving universal love and unity. ST carefully navigates the lyrics to express the idea of celebrating something greater than ourselves. Christmas is the unifying theme! Whether you’re a believer or not, ST believes everyone can all embrace a season of giving, sharing love, and honoring peace. “Christmas Unites the World” emphasizes communal caring souls. Accompanying ST is then 10-year old Ari, whose introduction dialogue holiday greetings in several languages and background vocals bring in a unique childhood sound.
SOUL TRACKS REVIEW “The First Listen readers have flocked towards the sophisticated smooth old school from Sargent Tucker ever since he was first noticed on “All the Squares”. The thumbs-up continued for the steady funk driven “I Need Your Love” and “No One Can Replace You.” “Yet, beyond those genuine gestures of community service, his soulful gleefulness behind the microphone reels in audiences yearning for an escape from meaningless lyrics and generic instrumentation…. Now Tucker dives into the holiday festivities as only he can, offering a message of reconciliation with his latest First Listen, “Christmas Unites the World” (Anada Records). “Of course, Tucker recognizes world countries one by one while and the simplicity behind the holidays: “Christmas comes / With meaning for a cause / Loving, giving / Just like Santa Claus.” Under the production guidance from Levi Seacer (Prince, Sounds of Blackness), the easygoing mid-tempo soundtrack matches the always assured vocal spirit from Tucker”.
