Vocal Stylist Reta Watkins to Appear on ‘Bill Martinez Live!’ This Friday
Worship leader, recording artist and vocal stylist Reta Watkins will discuss her innovative new holiday album, That Christmas Feeling, on the popular radio program, Bill Martinez Live!, on Friday, December 8, at 10:32 a.m. ET. Fans can listen live to the show, which airs in over 280 markets across the U.S., at billmartinezlive/listen-live.
The album, which hit retail shelves on Friday, November 17, 2017, from Suite 28 Records through Naxos of America, Inc., the nation’s leading independent classical music distributor, features groundbreaking, big band/jazz arrangements of Christmas classics, along with some fresh versions of more recent holiday tunes.
“I’ve waited my whole life to do this record,” says Reta. “My father passed away 10 years ago. I loved my dad so much, and one of my fondest memories was of us singing Christmas carols together. Dad was an outstanding tenor who grew up in the heyday of the big band/jazz era. We would sit together, listening to and singing along with the greats–Nat King Cole, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Bing Crosby. In particular, he loved all things Christmas, and I loved what he loved, so I fell in love with the Christmas carols. I would listen to Christmas music all year long if I could.”
Reta’s new collection of holiday music is already receiving rave reviews.
“One of the best new holiday offerings this season,” says Alpha Omega News.
“Wow, what a rendition!” says Bryan D. Seltzer, Sr. Editor, International Press Association. “Had my arms up praising and worshiping the Lord!!”
