|LOS ANGELES, CA –DECEMBER 8, 2017– Joy to the World, for Black Santa has come, bringing holiday cheer with his signature humor and swagger. This year, The BlackSanta Company brings a special Christmas gift: The Winter Wonderland Mixtape, a mixtape of new school Christmas carols delivered by unique, original, holiday-themed characters. The mixtape introduces the world of BlackSanta, the patron saint for a new holiday tradition, who speaks with a heart and soul wide open to those overlooked. His mission is to provide blessings and good will to those in need every single day, treating Christmas as a year round event with endless opportunity to give back.
Telling a heartwarming and moral Christmas story through original characters like Black Santa and the beautiful Mrs. C, or Cecilia Nicholson, the The Winter Wonderland Mixtape is a Hip-Hop, Pop and R&B odyssey through the holiday season, blending traditional holiday values and themes with modern pop styles. Highlights include the holiday slow jam “Mrs. C,” by Cecilia herself, “All I Want,” a passionate new Christmas ballad from Autumn, the infectious “4 The Bag” by the materialistic holiday haters Fire & Ice, the ice-cold Neptunes-esque stomp of “Froze,” by The Three Snowmen, and the soulful “Don’t Wait For Christmas,” by Black Santa’s barber Big Kev and his band of elves. The mixtape also paves the way for young talent like rising R&B star Jason Clas, 17, whose bonus track, “Can’t Sleep” has the potential to be a new holiday standard. Heating things up with a modern, rhythmic take on the holiday season, Black Santa’s Winter Wonderland Mixtape looks to redefine the most wonderful time of the year with a batch of new classics even better than milk and cookies.
A modern Holiday company that celebrates diversity, fun, and positivity, The BlackSanta Company creates themed characters and contemporary content to uphold the spirit of goodwill and community. Founded by the NBA’s Baron Davis, the company offers heroes, role models, and humor through character-based storytelling, music, experiential activations, and merchandise. The L.A.-based company benefits communities through charitable partnerships with non-profit organizations all-year round–“giving has no season.”
Created with the help of acclaimed and award-winning producers and songwriters, the Winter Wonderland Mixtape is the BlackSanta Company’s first venture into the musical realm. The mixtape was produced by Baron Davis and TITLE 9 Inc., with associate producers Andre ‘Dre’ Harris, Triangle Park Music and DUO, and mastered by Chris Gehringer, Sterling Sound, NY. A&R’s for the project include Carmen Murray, Jennifer Duke, and Michael Michel. Each sale of the Winter Wonderland Mixtape donates a portion to community charities, and the release of the mixtape heralds a month-long schedule of toy drives, concerts, and other charitable events for neighborhoods in need.
