Canadian Singer Alessia Cara has a Christmas single out entitled Make It To Christmas. The song tells the story of a relationship that is struggling, and the girl hopes to save it in time for Christmas.
The music is Pop with a Holiday twist. It has a slow and deep sound to reflect the mood in the beginning. However, the tempo increases in the chorus and at the end, which implies a sense of hope. The sleigh bells in the background complement the holiday vibe of the song. The music reminds me of Wham’s Last Christmas but with a contemporary twist to it, with a slower rhythm.
Alessia Cara’s voice is magnificent in the song. She captures the mixed emotions felt in this single. She sings with softness and grace that is remarkable.
The lyrics describe the challenges of someone whose relationship faces obstacles but hopes that it will all work out. The freestyle writing of this song has a natural flow and a lovely simplicity to it. The words are from the heart. One can sense the heartache the girl feels when it comes to relationship struggles. The optimism has a presence; however, in the sentence, “everything will be alright,” despite an overall vibe of sadness.
The single Make It To Christmas is available.
