Feliz Navidad, Tarja
In December 8th, 2017, Tarja released Feliz Navidad: Barbuda Relief And Recovery Charity Version in support of the Caribbean island of Barbuda which was hit by the category 5 hurricane Irma September 2017. The Whole population, of over 1500, needed to flee their homes in order to survive. Tarja, who has recorded the main part of her vocals for her recently released winter album From Spirits and Ghosts (Score for a dark Christmas) on said island, and has a very close relationship to the place and its inhabitants, decided this was the time to help.
Together with friends and fellow musicians such as Michael Monroe, Doro, Tony Kakko, Elize Ryd, Marko Saaresto, Timo Kotipelto, Simone Simons, Cristina Scabbia, Joe Lynn Turner, Floor Jansen, Hansi Kürsch and Sharon den Adel, Tarja created a new version of the Christmas carol “Feliz Navidad”. All incomes generated will be donated, with earMUSIC doubling the amount.
