Blue Élan Records Gets Into The Holiday Spirit with "A Blue Élan Christmas: Volume 2"

Article Contributed by MAD Ink PR | Published on Monday, December 6, 2021

As in years past, Blue Élan Records is featuring holiday music just in time for the upcoming Christmas season in partnership with the Alliance for Children's Rights.  Released today, A Blue Élan Christmas: Volume 2 will bring awareness to a shared vision in which all children have safe permanent families with the support they need to thrive. Blue Élan Records is making a direct donation to benefit the Alliance.

The Alliance provides services to impoverished, abused, and neglected young people; providing free legal services, advocacy, and programs that create pathways to jobs and access to education.  The Alliance levels the playing field and ensures that children who experience foster care are able to fulfill their potential.

The 17-track collection features classic holiday songs recorded by artists of The Blue Élan Family, including an exclusive physical release of the late Rusty Young's "Christmas Every Day" and "Christmas Medley," with melodies and steel guitar that brings to mind his great songs as a co-founder, songwriter, and singer of Poco (“Crazy Love”).   The collection also includes Jesse Dayton, Colin Devlin, and Chelsea Williams, whose version of "Christmas Waltz" was a mainstay on Spotify's New Holiday playlist last year.

Kirk Pasich, Blue Élan’s co-founder, says, “Helping children is something very important to our entire label family. Our artists donate their time and creative skills and help us help foster children. And, the Alliance for Children’s Rights does so much to help foster children—and families who want to adopt foster children. We like to do our small part—and hope you enjoy listening, knowing that by doing so, you too are helping foster children.”
