The homeless population in Utah will get a boost this winter from an unlikely source: Christmas Music.
FM 100.3 and Deseret Book partnered to create Home For Christmas, a collaborative Christmas album. All sales of the album will go straight to benefit the homeless. The Road Home, who operates the largest homeless shelter in Utah, was chosen as the recipient for the proceeds.
Home For Christmas features favorite LDS singers and songwriters like Hilary Weeks, Jon Schmidt, and Alex Boyé. It can be purchased at Deseret Book and other retail locations. It can also be downloaded at Deseretbook.com for $9.99.
The track list delivers a mix of popular Christmas favorites:
- Come, All Ye Faithful– Eclipse
- Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella– Jon Schmidt
- With Wondering Awe– Debra Fotheringham
- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer– Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband
- In the Bleak Midwinter– Mindy Gledhill
- I Saw Three Ships– David Tolk
- Mary’s Lullaby– Cherie Call
- Jingle Bell Rock– Voice Male
- Winter– April Meservy
- Go Tell it on the Mountain– Alex Boyé
- I’ll be Home for Christmas– Hilary Weeks
- Silent Night– Paul Cardall
