Atlanta, GA (October 21, 2022)
GRAMMY-winner artist Regina Belle will release a new album, My Colorful Christmas, on Tuesday, November 1st. Marking Belle’s first holiday album, My Colorful Christmas is available for pre-save/pre-order now, and contains ten tracks. Featuring the lead single “A Cradle in Bethlehem” which is going to radio, Belle brings her powerhouse voice to deliver an uplifting album of joyous celebration and soulful embrace for loved ones and God’s gifts of this festive season.
Regina Belle brings a refreshing take on My Colorful Christmas, performing beloved favorites like “The First Noel,” “Silent Night,” and songs of remembrance like “Auld Lang Syne” and new composition “I Had to Leave (A Song from Bernie).” Reflecting on the love and inspiration this season brings as people come together, Belle has made the album a family affair, encouraged by her brother, GRAMMY-winning composer/musician/producer Bernard Belle, who sadly passed away in the midst of this album’s recording. Long one of her biggest dreams, making a holiday album to celebrate her favorite time of year, in addition to the song “I Had to Leave” that she wrote with Bernard, Belle brought together family and friends on the album’s production, including a duet with her daughter Sydni Battle on “A Baby Changes Everything.”
Of this album’s journey, Regina Belle says: “This Christmas record, My Colorful Christmas, will be my greatest of Christmas gifts this year and for many years to come. It was always an idea of my brother (Bernard Belle) that we should do one together, and now it’s complete. Two of my daughters are singing (Sydni and Nyla), my son’s on drums (Jayln), one of my brother’s best friends (Ronald Scruggs) and my niece (Janah Belle) are singing backgrounds, and my nephew (Jahmel Belle) is producing and playing drums as well. Bernie, this one’s for you!”
Releasing this first holiday album on her own record label Tashi3 Entertainment, Belle shares: “My Colorful Christmas is by far my most challenging and magnificent project yet, because I had the opportunity to record this presentation on my own label. Being the boss is exigent but sublime all at the same time! I think I love it!”
