Wow, it’s been a crazy but good weekend. I did my first ever Christmas concert performing all the songs from “Have A Fancy Yancy Christmas”. It was a blast and exciting to finally bring the songs to life on the stage not just in the studio. I’ve done a few performances over the six weeks of a couple songs but it was my first time to do “Wonderful Christmastime” and “The Medley” as well as “The First Noel’ which is a personal favorite. So alot of the weekend was finishing all the details, production and rehearsing the tunes. Last night in Columbus, OH we had a blast celebrating the birth of our amazing Savior who was born for us. Thanks to everyone that was at the show. I hope it was a great evening for you and put you full throttle into the Christmas spirit.
Today, I’m in South Bend, Indiana. That’s right, home of Notre Dame but that’s not what I’m here for. I’m at LESEA Broadcasting to be on the Harvest show…spreading more Christmas cheer around. This time through the TV set. 🙂 As I sit here and look out the window, it’s snowing. That’s right…more snow in my life. It’s just following me the past few days. (Too bad I’m a summer weather kind of gal.) Anyways, I’m thankful for the opportunity to sing and share my music whether that be on a CD, live performance, TV show or the internet. I’m always grateful for the doors that God opens up so that I can share and impact lives with His love.
It’s Day 7 of my 12 Days of Christmas. Quick birthday shout out to my grandmother. Gram is 80 years old today. She’s an awesome, fun, loving and giving lady. I look alot like her and she’s actually how I got the name Yancy. My Dad’s father died when my Dad was only three years old. When my Gram finally remarried my Dad was a senior in high school. That man’s name was Paul Yancy. So ta da…..when I was born my parents decided to name me Yancy as a tribute to him. I laugh when people ask me what the name means thinking that’s how I got the name…it means “Englishman” and technically is a boy’s name. Yancy really is my name. It’s my first name. Named after my step-grandfather. So, that’s the story and I’m sticking to it. I hope my Gram, Ms. Betty Yancy, will have an amazing day filled with love and joy as she rings in year number eighty.
Tomorrow I’ll have more stories behind the songs on the record. But TODAY and just cause I’m feeling generous and it’s my grandmother’s birthday TOMORROW too, you can use code: day7remix to receive a FREE “Rock-N-Happy Dance Party REMIX” CD with any “Rock-N-Happy Heart” CD, DVD or Combo purchase.
