Singer/Songwriter Kara McGraw Releases New Christmas Single Benefiting Hurricane Victims

Alright, you might think we have more than enough Christmas songs out there. Well, we do. But singer/songwriter Kara McGraw's new single, The Chandelier, is still worth a listen anyway. Why? Because it's not blatantly Christmas-y, the lyrics are contemplative and happy in a sort of solemn way (which I like), and it's absolutely beautiful. Oh yeah, and until January 1st 100% of the profits go to small local farmers in Vermont who were affected by the damage from Hurricane Irene.

"I wanted a song that really captured what Christmas means to someone like me, who is very spiritual, but not necessarily religious, and I wanted a song that doesn't gloss over the dark stuff, but instead unravels the beauty of the complete picture." - Kara McGraw

Go ahead and give it a listen after the jump. If you like what you hear, throw some money at those farmers by donating and add the song to your collection of holiday tunes to brighten up the house when the relatives are over.
