Katinas Celebrate A Family Christmas October 19

Gotee recording artist The Katinas are slated to release their first full-length holiday recording, Family Christmas, on October 19.  Produced by The Katinas and executive produced by Toby McKeehan and Joey Elwood, Family Christmas features 10 cuts, including the original selection, “Christmas Is Here,” written by Sam, Joe and James Katina.   

The project also includes The Katinas’ own arrangements and adaptations of “O Holy Night,” “Joy To The World,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.”  Additional selections from Family Christmas include “Mary, Did You Know?” “Let It Snow!  Let It Snow!  Let It Snow!” “I¹ll Be Home For Christmas/White Christmas,” “¹Til The Season Comes ŒRound Again,” and the Michael W. Smith-penned classic, “Emmanuel.”  

“We grew up in the islands of the South Pacific where it never snowed or looked like Christmas, so for us, Christmas is not about the trimmings or the gifts or the ornaments‹it¹s about family,” said John Katina.  “With this record, we went back to our roots of vocal harmonies, and even though many of these classic songs have been recorded numerous times over the years, we¹ve worked to make these arrangements unique and refreshing.  It is our hope that people will love to listen to these songs as they go about their Christmas traditions, and that this record will be a part of Œfamily Christmases¹ for years to come.”     

The Katinas are set to join Michael W. Smith¹s “Christmastime Tour” as special guests for a third year. Also featuring special guests Point of Grace, the Tour is slated to kick-off in Winston Salem, North Carolina, and hit 19 cities throughout November and December, including Baltimore; St. Paul, Minnesota; Green Bay, Wisconsin; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Jacksonville, Florida, before concluding in Nashville.

In addition to appearing at a Billy Graham Crusade and Promise Keepers events, as well as touring in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand in 2004, The Katinas have also participated in two rallies in support of President George W. Bush¹s re-election bid.  The group performed for more than 10,000 people in Orlando at the first public rally kicking-off President Bush¹s campaign in March.  

Family Christmas will be distributed by EMI CMG Distribution.   For further information, contact Turning Point Media Relations, Inc., at 615-261-1818.
