Robert has just released a song for the holidays, and it is his take on a familiar classic, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”

Robert tells us: "Christmas was one of my favorite times of the year growing up in Philly. The chill in the air, the first snow, sledding down steep hills in the neighborhood, hot apple cider, Christmas trees and yes the music! I have always loved Christmas music and couldn't wait for a chance to record my first holiday song! I chose ‘I'll Be Home For Christmas’ because I have so many beautiful memories growing up in Philly and how magical my Mom made Christmas. From the massive tree we brought every Christmas eve to the incredibly delicious Christmas dinner to the smile on her face when another guest arrived! The holidays are a special time to pause. Put a comma in the drama...take time to reflect, give thanks and prepare for the coming year. I thank my producer Grant William Nicholas for another stellar job on production and the musicians Darrell Crooks (Guitar), Keith Eaddy (Bass) and Grant Nicholas (keys, strings, drums). May this labor of love find it's way into your homes and hearts. I dedicate this recording to the Queen Of Christmas, my Mom The late Thelma Gee...RIP I know this made you smile!"
