KAMB is excited to bring you the Christmas Festival of Music this December, Where we will be playing 100% Christian Christmas music that tells the Christ centered reason for Christmas! Blanca‘s new song God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is one of the many Christmas songs we will be playing. Her upbeat version brings a fresh twist to a classic tune.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
The title already hints at the uplifting and joyful spirit of the song, which is perfect for getting into the holiday mood. Blanca’s involvement in arranging the song, shows her dedication to crafting a unique rendition of this classic hymn. The collaboration with Alex Campos is a fantastic idea, Campos adds his own style and flair to “Gozo Y Paz (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen),” creating a fusion of Latin and Christmas vibes that is sure to resonate with a wider audience. Blanca’s vocal control and the choir’s backing vocals make this adaptation stand out, emphasizing the incomprehensible joy that Christmas represents.
In summary, Blanca’s Christmas release for 2023 is a must-listen for those looking to infuse their holiday playlist with both traditional and contemporary elements. With her commanding vocals, choral backing, and the Spanish collaboration with Alex Campos, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (Joy)” and “Gozo Y Paz (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen) [feat. Alex Campos]” are poised to spread joy and warmth during the festive season. It’s truly a delightful addition to the world of Christmas music, offering something special for everyone.

In Matthew’s account of the Christmas story, Magi from the east came to find the newborn king and worship him. And then Matthew 2:3 says, “When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.” That italicized phrase is worth noting.
This Christmas, your invitation to others can be vital!
Scholars believe that “all Jerusalem” refers not to the average citizen in Jerusalem, but “all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law” (Matthew 2:4). In other words, it was the “in crowd,” those that retained power over the average citizen. Matthew’s gospel goes on to say these people knew enough about the Messiah to give Herod the information he needed to rid himself of any successor to his throne.
There was word of the Messiah weeks or months earlier. Luke’s account of the nativity says that when the shepherds saw Jesus, “they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them” (Luke 2:17-18). Those “crazy shepherds” telling stories again… telling tales of strange things that no one can fathom, almost like telling fish stories and “the one that got away.”
This Christmas, you play a critical role as God’s messenger of bringing good tidings of great joy, and KAMB is here to help.
