(VOXtra) - When Santa Claus and reindeer visit children's hospitals, they like to bring along a troupe of voice actors and musicians.
And the ensemble creates LOVE - which, in fact, is the theme of this year's Children's Holiday Magic Project.
Now in it's 11th year, the project is on course to send a record-breaking 7,000+ CDs to entertain children and their families in children's hospitals worldwide, continuing the tale of Santa Claus and Jeffrey the Surfer Reindeer (that's him, looking at you), as they make their way from the North Pole to visit the children.
Each year the tale is different, comprised of recordings submitted by voice actors and other entertainers, and chosen in mid-September by a committee of voice actors, singers, songwriters, studio engineers, volunteers and project board members.
"As you can imagine, the submissions range in style, mood and length, so a lot of thought and passion goes in to which submissions are chosen," explains voice talent / producer Jeff Gelder, project organizer (pictured, recording his segment).
"The ultimate goal is to choose the submissions that, collectively, follow the submission requirements and match the theme of the year’s CD. With so many to choose from it is always a challenge to narrow it down!
"After thoughtful consideration and much colorful debate, the songs and stories are woven together on paper, their eventual same sequence professionally produced voluntarily by GelderHead Productions and mastered at Edge Studio, then packaged with the gift you see each year."
STARTS WITH LOVE ...
This year's theme jumped out at the committee in a song written by voice talent / trainer Deb Munro. Here's that song, matched to slides for a presentation at the project's Dec. 4 Launch Party & Fundraiser dinner in San Diego.
The song is a DebsVoice/MuttYard Production, from Deb Munro, Wayne Nordeen and Brent Halfyard ...
