Celebrate the holidays with Natalie Prass in the new “Everybody’s Having Fun (It’s Christmas Time)” video
As our Eric Schuman said earlier today on Twitter, new original Christmas songs are great, Natalie Prass is great — so this new video from the Richmond, Virginia singer-songwriter is an example of great things coming together.
Prass released the playful, electropop-tinged video for “Everybody’s Having Fun (It’s Christmas Time)” (shot mostly in an empty parking lot) on her Facebook page earlier today. The song is available for download on Bandcamp, and will benefit School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community.
Of the nonprofit, Prass had this to say:
SPARC is an incredible Richmond, VA institution that’s founded on the principle that no child will be turned away because they can’t afford tuition. The school is open to all children; it has never discriminated on class, race, religion, gender identity or physical disabilities. It is the most diverse arts school in the region. The arts are critical to children for building their confidence – that statistically translates to better performance in their schooling – which will carry throughout their lives. I strongly believe if we teach and take care of ALL children, and open up their world of possibilities, then we will have a stronger community for everyone in the future. Basically Whitney said it best, “I believe the children are our future…teach them well and let them lead the way.”
Of the song and video, Prass also said “This holiday season is, for many of us, a confusing and frustrating one. This Christmas video is a statement on all of that. To try your hardest to be a self contained vessel of joy.”
