Mary I'm telling You Now! - VERY catchy new Christmas song

The Annunciation was never like this! What a dilemma, engaged to be married to Joseph - then you are told that you're gong to bear the son of God! This singable song puts a human angle on this part of the Christmas story. Please check the vocal demo - you will be singing the chorus by the end of it! Send the children to this page on my website so they can practice at home - vital to get the words out clearly. http://www.musicals4kidz.com/musicals4kidz.com/Christmas_Songs_for_Choirs.html They can also access the song on You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpC0O3yViL4 Get in touch if you want any changes to key or tempo.
