JUNO award nominee, Suzie McNeil made our holidays even more festive when she performed "Santa I'm Waiting for You" off her new album "This is Christmas."
Best known for her hits, "Merry Go Round" and "Supergirl" the singer-songwriter has been entertaining us with her work for years. She has performed in front of crowds containing up to 200, 000 people and worked with top acts such as Steven Tyler and P!nk.
Even Marilyn admits that she would want to be her back-up singer.
For her new album McNeil has written four original songs. "I wrote kind of one a year, and then I thought this is half an album. So we rounded it out with four classics," she explains.
The classics on the album are "White Christmas," "River," "Let It Snow," and her favourite "Silent Night."
For the Holidays the performer plans on going on what she calls the "Christmas Turkey Tour," which includes visiting family and friends at various locations across Canada. "I have like eight turkeys by the end of Christmas!" As for her career plans, next year she is heading to Vegas for shows and will begin writing her next record.
