Renowned Singer-Songwriter Laura Cheadle, who recently inked a worldwide distribution deal with So Bold Entertainment/ Sony Orchard, has announced that she will be giving the gift of music this holiday season as she unveils details for her new seasonally-inspired EP.

The lyric video for the album’s single “Giving You For Me Christmas” is available now at “Giving You Me For Christmas” Video.
Inspired by her own love of Christmas and growing up in a musical family where performing together during the holidays was a tradition, Cheadle says this was especially important to her this year because “We really need to come together, especially during these hard times.”
“As a musician, I feel it is my responsibility to put out music that encourages love and kindness,” said Cheadle. “There’s no better time than the holidays to spread messages of hope and joy.”~Laura Cheadle
Let’s Get Together For Christmas features nine songs, including five original tracks. According to Cheadle, the five that she wrote “really showcase my soulful style with blues-driven elements” while the classics are those that “were part of her childhood growing up.”
