“Perfect Holiday” is the perfect gift for the music lover in your circle of family and friends. Tara Lyn Hart’s Christmas album for a good cause is back for another season. First released in time for Christmas 2010, the CD includes old favourites like “What Child is This” and original works like “Christmas Alleluia” and “Perfect Holiday”. Proceeds from sales of the album go to Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary (CLTS) in St. Catharines. The album also features violinist Dianne Humann, wife of retired CLTS professor Rev. Dr Roger Humann.
Tara Lyn Hart’s roots in the Canadian music industry run deep. Following childhood performances in church and talent competitions near her hometown of Roblin, Manitoba, a three year contract with Sony Music allowed her to enter the music scene in Nashville where she would eventually perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2000, she won the Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star award and was further nominated for two Juno Awards for the title track on her album Stuff that Matters. She also ran a successful performing arts school in Cobourg, Ontario, from 2002 to 2008. Since June 2012 Tara and her family have lived in southern Australia where her husband Perry is Pastor for the Waikerie Parish of the Lutheran Church of Australia.
“Perfect Holiday” costs $10 and can be ordered by calling CLTS at (905) 688-2362 or emailing the seminary at Concordia@brocku.ca. It can also be purchased online at Tara Lyn Hart’s website. Individual songs are available at iTunes.
