Amazon Music announced this Monday a new Latin programming for the holiday season with exclusive songs by prominent artists such as Manuel Turizo, Majo y Dan, Alex Zurdo, Blanca, Alex Campos, Demarco Flamenco, Rafa Pérez and Edurne.
The lineup includes Manuel Turizo’s new version of All I Want For Christmas Is You, the original Mariah Carey classic, the music service said in a statement.
In addition, a reimagined version of El hijo ausente by Pastor López performed by Rafa Pérez, Lola Flores’ version of La Marimorena by Demarco Flamenco, the song from En lo alto gloria by Majo and Dan and Alex Zurdo, the new version of Gozo y Paz by Blanca and Alex Campos, and a version of Dime Navidad by Edurne.
“I chose the Mariah Carey song because I love it; it is a great work of art. All the arrangements, the voices, everything is perfect,” said Manuel Turizo, quoted in the bulletin.
“This is a song for my Latin people, and it has my interpretation, voice and arrangements. I want you to enjoy this song with your family, all those who speak Spanglish and Spanish will also enjoy it,” he added.
“It is a pleasure and an honor to be a part of this great Amazon Music global Christmas listening. Colombia has so many rhythms and culture to show the world and I feel very honored to be the one representing my country on this occasion. I really hope you like it as much as I do. Merry Christmas!” Rafa Pérez said in turn.
Rocío Guerrero, global director of Latin Music at Amazon Music, explained that this year’s Christmas lineup is made up of “a combination of reimagined classics that will connect us with our culture and bring us joy and nostalgia at the same time.”
“We are excited to have a playlist for every occasion and mood to celebrate this very special season,” she said.
Plus, new exclusive songs from artists around the world arrive to brighten the holidays, including a new rendition of Lizzo’s Someday at Christmas, Kane Brown’s Blue Christmas, and Firebase’s reimagined version of British rapper and singer-songwriter Stormzy.
