Three singles have been released to radio, Unspoken’s “Feliz Navidad,” “Light of the World” by Lauren Daigle, and “Asleep in the Hay” by Jonny Diaz. The latter two songs mark the debut Centricity Music releases from Jonny Diaz and Lauren Daigle, and the first Christmas song from Unspoken.
“Christmas is such an emotional time for Christians,” says Steve Ford, Vice President of Marketing, Centricity Music. “It is a time of joy and reflection, love and thanks. It covers the gamut of feelings and that is reflected in the music on our Christmas release. You have the joy of ‘Feliz Navidad’ the epic ‘Light Of The World’ or the intimate ‘Asleep In The Hay.’ It is also a great vehicle to introduce some of our new artists to the world. We hope you love Lauren and Carrollton as much as we do.”
