Jim Brickman Romantic Holiday Concert

I've realized today that I already have one New Year's resolution - to post messages in this blog more often :). Again, I'm sorry for such a long time between my posts - I've been spending my non-working hours with family, friends and of course my husband. Last Monday night, the two of us went to see Jim Brickman's holiday concert at Proctor's Theatre, with Anne Cochran and electric violinist Tracy Silverman. What a wonderful show - definitely put us in the holiday spirit even more.

At our wedding 3 years ago I had Jim Brickman's song 'Simple Things' (vocals by Rebecca Lynn Howard) played before the start of our ceremony (it's one of Jim's popular love songs, and mentions 'A thousand chiming church bells ring'), so I thought it would be an appropriate song for our guests to listen to). Many couples select a Jim Brickman song for their first dance as husband and wife (ex. Love of My Life, Valentine, Destiny, and The Gift - wedding favorites of many). We had another Jim Brickman's song 'You' (featuring Jane Krakowski) played during our reception. (For our first dance, we opted for a song that wasn't one of the traditional songs typically selected - it was 'Plan On Forever' with Sue Ann Carwell, Mervyn Warren from 'The Wedding Planner' movie soundtrack)

Here is a list of all the albums Jim Brickman has available:
The Disney Songbook
Greatest Hits
Love Songs & Lullabies
Simple Things
My Romance
Visions Of Love
The Gift
Picture This
By Heart
