A Country Singer Ready to Make A Difference This Holiday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Singer-songwriter Kimberly Dawn releases her highly anticipated Christmas single, “Life Changing.” This holiday season, Kimberly’s message is about the giving spirit of helping others. “What can I give, what actions can I take to be Life Changing. Make this world a better place. Life Changing, show somebody else some grace.” The song and lyric video is a heartfelt reflection of going the distance for someone in need, and realizing that all it takes is a little bit of giving and sharing to create a Life Changing experience this Christmas. Listen Here: “Life Changing”’s Lyric Video

The sincere lyrics, penned by Kimberly Dawn, Brian Payne, and co-written with Grammy-nominated producer Kent Wells, who has worked with Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, and Kenny Rogers, are a holiday anthem that brings to light the different types of giving we can do. Christmas music is surely an all-time favorite once-a-year tradition, but “Life Changing” can be a song you listen to all year long. Not only is it a Christmas song, but it speaks volumes about how someone’s heart will be rewarded in return. That really is the true spirit of giving. Kimberly says, “I knew that when I was writing this song that I wanted it to be powerful and thought-provoking. I love the way that Kent works as a producer because he really hears sounds and really knows how to pull a song together to give it that special sound.” Tugging at your heartstrings, this song will leave the listener reflecting on what they can do this holiday season to help make a difference. There are plenty of ways we can help make the world a brighter place, whether it’s ‘giving, sharing, hoping, helping, and saving.’ The songs allow us to capture and express the joy, deviation, and inspirational spirit of the holiday season this December.
