The music video ecard of Silent Night by PeaceFoals is available – and everyone can freely share it. The song from “A PeaceFoals Holiday” an EP of four songs was originally released four years ago. Jim: “People listen to this little album all year round, it’s really pretty amazing. Making the video Christmas card of Silent Night with the nativity scene hopefully can help spread the love and hope of the true meaning of Christmas. Not sure who originally said this, but ‘Our lives are God’s gift to us; what we do with our lives is our gift to God.'”
Jim and one of his brothers have developed a patented music accessory which is available now! GuitarArcs™ The Trucks of Guitar Picks™ Info here
