Difference Media recording artist and one of Southern Gospel's most lauded soloists, Ivan Parker, is set to release Christmas Dreaming October 5. Produced by Garry Jones (Canton Junction, Brian Free), the collection offers a nostalgic take on six timeless holiday favorites and four beloved carols.
"It's my hope that this collection presents the spirit of Christmas morning--the peace that brings us closer together at the holidays," said Parker. "'It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year' and 'There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays' take me right back to my childhood and Christmas with my family. And the newer classic, 'My Grown Up Christmas List,' is so fitting for the times we live in now. With much confusion and division in the world, it was important for me to have a song about love, peace and the restoration of joy. Forget the problems and the things that divide us and let's go back to what the season is all about."
"Most of all, I want people to understand the real reason for Christmas," Parker emphasizes. "Carols like 'What Child Is This' and 'It Came Upon A Midnight Clear' point us back to the manger--these are the songs that present Jesus, the true Hope of Christmas."
