Denis Walter OAM, veteran recording artist and top rating 3AW Radio announcer has joined creative forces with André Rieu’s star soprano and international recording artist Mirusia to record a special Christmas song. With the gloom that Covid-19 brought to everyone in 2020, Denis and Mirusia have recorded a timely song “We Need A Little Christmas”. With the expertise of Melbourne Producer, Michael Cristiano (The Seekers longtime record producer), they have created a heart felt, touching and unique ballad as a single to spread the joy of togetherness and the Christmas spirit.
“We Need a Little Christmas” is a popular Christmas song originating from Jerry Herman’s 1966 Broadway musical Mame. In the musical, the song is performed as a moment of optimism; uplifting us all after a major setback.
Denis Walter is known to a national audience for his longtime singing career, annual appearance on the Melbourne Carols by Candlelight and his evening radio program on 3AW. Denis said - “As a “Melburnian” I know the difficulties everyone has suffered this year with the isolation and fear caused by Covid-19. This song sends a message that we all need a little warmth of Christmas “right now” and better times ahead. “
Mirusia is known to millions around the world from her longtime association as the Star Soprano with André Rieu, and her own international tours and best selling albums and dvd’s.
Mirusia said “Christmas is a special time and I hope this song will bring some love and joy to people everywhere and remind us that the joy of Christmas will lift our spirits.”
