Viral YouTube sensation MusicClubKids! releases their new holiday Special Episode, A Very Merry MusicClubKids Christmas in partnership with Evergreen Enterprise Experience and Federal Films, the newly created film and TV division within Republic Records.
The 45-minute counterpart to their Christmas album A Very Merry MusicClubKids Christmas follows the kids on a fun-filled holiday adventure. In the episode, the five MusicClubKids!, Azzy Brooks (who plays Avery), Rylee O'Brien (as Zoey), Brayden Frasure (as Wyatt), Izabela Figuero (as Lili) and Arrington Kennedy (as Hailey), accidentally transfer Blitzen's magic flying power to their dog Barkley; this prevents Santa from flying his sleigh to deliver presents, leading the group to the North Pole to save Christmas.
The new special adds to the MusicClubKids! narrative universe, enjoyed by over 1.2 million followers worldwide. Throughout the episode, the kids perform their seasonal hits including "Ask Santa," a lively adaptation of Ed Sheeran's "Bad Habits," a trap version of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," an uptempo twist on "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," among others.
Executive Producer and Showrunner Eric Foster White shares: "Our first foray into long-form content gives our characters more identity and solidifies the super-fun musical story world we've been building for over two years. I don't think it's a stretch to say that our music is among the best if not the best ever in a kid's show, and the performances by our stars leave little room for doubt that they are rare, exceptional talents with very bright futures in music."
Bree Bowles, Vice President of Marketing & Strategy from Republic Records adds: "The special explores the magic of Christmas and friendship, backed by an unforgettable soundtrack. There are snowball fights and punchy one-liners but the true standout is the jaw-dropping vocal performances of Azzy, Arrington, Izabela, Brayden and Rylee. I am excited for the world to see what I have been watching on repeat for weeks."
MusicClubKids! is the creation of Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer, musician, and screenwriter Eric Foster White whose credits include over 70 million album sales worldwide, touring with Frank Sinatra, and writing and producing chart-topping hits for the likes of Whitney Houston, The Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears. The family-friendly series, in which White transforms today's most popular hits into "story songs" for children with accompanying mini-episodes, has accumulated 400 million organic YouTube views.
