LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Following up on the success of Letters to Santa during the 2009 holiday season, Concord Music Group is once again partnering with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to release their second holiday-themed collection, “Let It Snow” (released on November 1, 2010). The compilation will be displayed — alongside a DVD of the perennial holiday TV classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer — at select USPS outlets throughout the season.
This exclusive 11-track CD includes timeless holiday favorites by an eclectic mix of legends and luminaries representing a wide range of genres and styles: Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles with Betty Carter, Jason Mraz, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Chris Isaak, Mel Tormé, Rosemary Clooney, Vince Guaraldi, Paul McCartney, and the Jackson 5. The point-of-purchase CD offer provides the ultimate musical keepsake for those among the vast USPS customer base seeking an exclusive, pre-packaged gift for easy shipping.
Concord Music Group has been a consistent leader in bringing timeless music to non-traditional retail, as evidenced by two previous exclusive releases with USPS — Letters to Santa in 2009 and Ella Fitzgerald’s Love Letters from Ella in February 2010. Letters to Santa climbed to the top of the Billboard Seasonal Holiday Chart last November and stayed there for more than six weeks. To date, the 2009 holiday release has sold more than 130,000 units.
