Jaclyn Bradley Palmer is releasing the music video “O’ Holy Night,” her duet with Holland’s Broadway actor Jeroen Robben (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST). The song appears on her new holiday album, DECEMBER.
There’s the warmth of brother in “O’ Holy Night.” The video takes place in a church built in the 1200s in the Netherlands. It moves from black and white to color and features Jaclyn and Jeroen blending their trained and comforting voices, plus her friends harmonizing in the background. ”My musical friends,” the magnanimous Jaclyn says. “They hail from 7 different countries, and they’re all different, but coming together in harmony. I’ve always made artistic friends wherever I lived (Cleveland, LA, New York, Holland, now Ireland). I always had a community, thanks to music and art. “
The changing of black & white into color, Jaclyn explains, “signifies the light and beauty that comes from the holiday season. By using one take (after the introduction footage), we allow viewers to enter the ancient church and experience the song as if they were a fly on the wall, inviting them into the middle of a very special moment in time.”
Jaclyn enjoyed working with Jeroen, whom she met on the set of the Voice Holland.
He came to her house to watch the episode they were on together. But he had to sing to Jaclyn’s 4-year old daughter for his supper because he played “The Beast.” “She was absolutely mesmerized to have a real Disney character in her living room!”
December is Jaclyn Bradley Palmer’s 4th studio album release, and in the Americana Singer-Songwriter Genre.
Palmer received her vocal training in opera from Indiana University and later became a singer-songwriter in Los Angeles where her music was licensed for TV and film. The new record, which combines holiday classics with original compositions, is a nod to her diverse musical background. “I have been longing to create a holiday album for many years and am so happy with the result,” shared Palmer. “Every winter, the music of Nat King Cole and Johnny Mathis filled my house and really made the home feel like Christmas. I wanted to contribute to this musical tradition of bringing on holiday cheer in the same way.”
