Unicorn Jazz Presents the 12 Days of Christmas Song and Music Video – We are singing this Holiday Season with our Charity Partner: Children’s Hospital of Orange County Foundation and 24 Talented Kid Actors, Broadway Singers, musicians and more! For families near and far, sickness and injury has become a barrier from gathering all together. Normally a company like Unicorn Jazz ™ would be able to come in and read to the kids of CHOC, but things continue to look differently as we work through the difficulties of the Pandemic. Unicorn Jazz and author/director, @LisaCaprelli, are dedicated to the magic of childhood and bringing happiness to children. Coming December 2020, we will be showcasing a new & fun origins music video and original lyrics to “The 12 Days of Christmas” featuring notable kid singers/actors. Thanks to the collective help of Leorah Haberfield from Shine Theatre Arts Project, and the Unicorn Jazz Team, these 24 kids have come together to sing, cheer, clap and dance to celebrate holiday cheer! We can't wait to show it to you and the behind the scenes collaboration of these awesome kids! Special thanks to these wonderful children & team listed below! @UnicornJazzBrand #UnicornJazz @Leorah_Haberfield @shinetheatreartsproject @Nikolas_gmm @ellieroserubin @miafrancesca.m @parker_dzuba @molly_k_lyons @rhett_drennen @Caitlin_rose_foley @codybraverman @mackenzieemercerofficial @officialwinterdonnelly @maddiekayharris @diggysworld @nirvaanpal @jolie_rose @scarlettlndn @Sofia_Swade_Sings @rjcrandall10 @layla_capers @lillian_and_madison @emilyisabel.official @sophia_bella_love @CordeliaRose1222 @arwen_take3 Read the full blog story at: https://unicornjazz.com/the-12-days-of-christmas-song-and-music-video-by-24-talented-kids/ Want to be part of our next kids music video?
