Tuesday 2 December 2003 @ 16:02 - GMT

Gotta Love The Holidays, a collection of ten classic and newly-recorded Yuletide songs from such acclaimed artists as Elton, Barry Manilow, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion and amazing new singing Jazz star Michael Buble, will be released December 9, 2003, on Warner Bros. Records, just in time for Christmas. 

A portion of the proceeds from the album, which features the new original song Gotta Love The Holidays by singer Shawn King with a special appearance by saxophonist Kenny G., as well as renditions of such beloved favorites as White Christmas, Silent Night, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear and a spoken rendition of T'was The Night Before Christmas from renowned actress Sharon Stone, will be donated to the non-profit Larry King Cardiac Foundation. Established in 1988, the charity provides funds to those who would not otherwise be able to afford life-saving heart procedures.

Elton contributes his 1973 seasonal song, Step Into Christmas.
