Chill-Pop artist Sereena released her take on the Christmas classic, The First Noel. Listen here
Instead of releasing the song on a Friday to meet industry standards, Sereena made the choice to release on December 6 in honor of her late brother, Sam Barga, who will have celebrated his 22nd birthday that day.
“I was a little nervous to release it on his birthday because I didn’t want to make it about me, but after talking to my parents about this, they comforted me in saying it was an honor and a way to celebrate Sam’s life on Earth,” says Sereena.
In this rendition of The First Noel, Sereena stays true to her chill-pop vibe without abandoning the more traditional sounds of the holidays. Blending sleigh bells and choir vocals along with some of her favorite electronic elements and R&B melodies; this song just begs for a warm fireplace and cold winter’s night.
