Between Rosebuds and Brantley Family Band, 2012 has already been a really fine year for Christmas music around here. And now we have a late addition to the Triangle holiday-music canon, "Bing Crosby" by Chapel Hill student singing group The Chorus Project. Co-produced by Seamus Kenney (who originally recorded the song with his band SNMNMNM) and iconic dB's co-founder Chris Stamey, it's a lush pop gem with impeccable vocals from the 25-member chorus and 15-year-old lead singer Wilson Plonk.
Hot off the presses, recorded just last Saturday, "Bing Crosby" is available for only $1; but you might opt to kick in a bit more than that since a portion of proceeds are earmarked for KidZNotes, a Durham-based orchestral music program for low-income students. You can buy the song here; and check the video here.
