A group of students, staff, and alumni at Trinity Lutheran College have recorded a Christmas album to raise money for the Interfaith Family Homeless Shelter in Everett.
The albums are for sale at Major League Pizza, Cafe Zippy, and Silver Cup Coffee (on Colby) for only $5. The entire $5 goes to the shelter.
The songs recorded include:
In the Bleak Midwinter
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Away in a Manger
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Joy to the World
One of the students who sang on the album, freshman Katrine Numme, comes to Trinity from Norway. Her rendition of 'Away in a Manger' is primarily in her native Norwegian.
"It was a lot of fun working on the album. We didn't exactly know what we would get, but we're really excited with the music that came out of the project. It just seemed like a great project for a local nonprofit that meets an important need in our community," said Tucker FitzGerald, Visual Communication professor at Trinity Lutheran College.
