Everyone has his own memories around Christmas. I fondly remember the time when I was a six-year-old boy and a soprano in the church choir. Christmas for us was not only presents and cookies but also the exciting moments when we performed the most beautiful and festive songs and carols in the church. Without this music Christmas is just not the same for me. Later on, when Marjorie and I were blessed with two wonderful boys, Marc and Pierre, it also became a celebration of family and togetherness as well as fun and laughter. I remember very well our two boys cooking a Christmas dinner for my wife and me when they were just four and six! You can imagine it was a culinary delight! I would never be away from my family around the holidays – especially now since I can enjoy the glowing faces of my grandchildren and their excitement when they see the Christmas tree and the gifts waiting underneath. I travel around the world for the whole year working hard to bring music and joy to my audiences and fans but I am always home for Christmas. To me this is the time of singing and fun, love and romance but also truth and openness to other people and their hardships. In those times of plenty one should also think of sharing with those in need.
