With Christmas only being just around the corner, earMUSIC and Finish singer Tarja Turunen decided to join forces for a special edition “Feliz Navidad”: the Barbuda Relief And Recovery Charity Version, and now published a video for her solo version of the song “Feliz Navidad”.
The Caribbean island of Barbuda has been hit in September by the category 5 hurricane Irma, and the whole population of 1,800 needed to flee their homes in order to survive. Tarja, who has recorded the main part of her vocals for her recently released winter album “From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas)” on said island and has a very close relationship to the place and its inhabitants, decided that now is the right time to help.
Together with friends and fellow musicians such as Michael Monroe, Doro Pesch, Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Marko Saaresto (Poets of the Fall), Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius), Simone Simons (Epica), Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation), Tarja created a new version of the Christmas carol “Feliz Navidad”.
All collected funds will be donated, with earMUSIC doubling the amount.
