Pop-Soul artist Rehya Stevens has just released a holiday single that tells the nativity story in classic style, reminiscent of Christmas standards from the public domain.
Supported by a choir of friends and colleagues who have also garnered acclaimed, she enlists the help of Jarrett Johnson (Take 6, Michael Buble), Alexx Daye (Patti Labelle, Frank Ocean), and LaVance Colley (Postmodern Jukebox, DWTS).
“Gloria” showcases compositional sophistication, while invoking influence from vocal powerhouses like Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and CeCe Winans.
Produced, arranged, and co-written with Jon Kubis (orchestrator/pianist @ DWTS), and Peter Martin (orchestrator/pianist @ The Mickey Mouse Club), “Gloria” is the first single from Stevens’ Christmas LP TBR in 2018, a product of a crowd-funding partnership with Pledgemusic.com. 5% of all pledges benefit Imagine LA, a non-profit organization dedicated to mobilizing the community to end the cycle of family homelessness and poverty.
If “Gloria” is any indication of the body of work from Steven’s 2018 holiday LP, then music lovers will soon have a Christmas album to cherish for decades to come.
