Christmas songs 2020 by Jaya Khoobsurat and talented worldwide musical friends

A very tough year for so many – myself included. However, singing has very fortunately brought me a form of emotional stability (despite four house-moves this year, university challenges, daily travel, teaching part-time and assisting behind-the-scenes of the community – all this, plus singing!) – music has been my Saviour to an insanely challenging time; and to this end, I have been blessed to work with some of the most wonderfully kind, and brilliantly talented musicians on the planet via the Smule App. Each song was crafted with so much love and passion – singing for any serious artist is a lifelong practice in pitch, timing, song choices, beauty, empathy, rhythmic challenges and sheer perseverance.

I am deeply grateful for my family, friends and musical collegues (whether in the flesh or cyber, local or international); for without, I would not have survived this very harsh year.

So here are some of the most endearing and beautiful Christmas recordings; and some ‘other’ beautiful songs to entertain and uplift you – I sincerely hope you enjoy them – please ‘like’ and ‘share’ this post far and wide – music is the glue that connects and unites humanity – the Universal language!!

Songs of Magnificence

Its been quite some time since I wrote a post – so much has happened in the past many months. The Australian bushfires that took the lives of many people, more than 1500 homes and a guess-timate of a staggering 1.25 billion native animals, and displaced 1000’s of people and their businesses and whole towns turned to ashes. And if that wasn’t enough suffering, we then suffered (with the rest of the world) a full lockdown with CoVid-19, millions losing their livelihoods, dreams dashed, innovation and community spirit rallying, all this amongst additional awareness raising of ‘Black Lives Matter‘ rallies that ironically then caused further lockdown in the state of Victoria. Its been a huge time for everyone.

I personally had three house moves in five months directly due to these events – life turned upside down for a while; and I lost all ‘traction’ with my video-business-card film business, instead, teaching ESL (English to 2nd language learners) online, and praying daily, for financial respite. Just beginning again, to gain a little movement forward in life again. Phew, tough times!

Run to You

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13

Feels Like Home
