Peter Hollens might be best-known for his A Capella covers of popular songs - covers so well-received that he's racked-up 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube, with his videos reaching nearly a quarter of a billion views since 2011. Having collaborated and performed with artists including Brian Wilson, Jason Mraz, Hunter Hayes, Gladys Knight, Lindsey Stirling, George Watsky, Jackie Evancho, and ThePianoGuys, the next chapter is a Holiday Album for 2016 - A Hollens Family Christmas - an album forged by Hollens' community of fans and supporters, who together helped to shape the track selection. With a promise of new music videos every Friday through the Holiday Season, the first is here with "December Song." Check it out below, and for one of the most comprehensive guides of New Holiday Music & Movies for 2016, check out this feature here on THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine as part of my annual Holiday Wish Guide.

“I love this music and these songs because they are familiar. At their core, these songs embody peace, love, unity, family, community, hope, new beginnings, and appreciation for the things we often take for granted. These are values that resonate with people all around the world, from all backgrounds and walks of life.” --- Peter Hollens
