I am writing on behalf of Cost Plus World Market to share details for an exciting Star Maker Song Contest… read on for the full scoop!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year for so many reasons! From cinnamon spice and holly to candy canes and Christmas lights, everything about the holiday season over-fills my heart with joy!
There’s no better way to set the mood for the season than with lovely holiday tunes, like those found on “This Christmas Day,” the newest album from Jessie J. With favorite Christmas classics like “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” and “Let It Snow,”and artist collaborations like “Winter Wonderland” featuring Boyz II Men and “The Christmas Song” featuring Babyface – the soundtrack will definitely fill you with plenty of holiday spirit and joy.
Right now, holiday music lovers have a very special opportunity to show their holiday spirit and singing talents. Our all-time favorite retailer for the holidays (and every day!), Cost Plus World Market, has partnered with Grammy award-nominated, multi-platinum star Jessie J for the World Market Star Maker Song Contest!
Cost Plus World Market is featuring an original recording of “Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town” by Jessie J in their new Christmas video AND Jessie J will also be choosing the winning performance for the World Market’s Star Maker Song Contest.
We have a special treat for you, check out the Cost Plus World Market holiday commercial below. It’s such a sweet, heart-warming video and I’m sure you’ll agree, Jessie J sounds amazing!
To enter for a chance to win, all you need to do is create and upload a video of yourself singing “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.” Take a deep breath and belt out your favorite rendition of the song using your own musical accompaniment, the instrumental version with lyric found HERE, or feel free to sing a cappella. (Just keep in mind that submissions using non-original music and lyrics will not be eligible and video submissions need to be less than 1:45 minutes in length max.)
The World Market Star Maker Song Contest grand prize is a professional recording session with a top music producer plus a $1,000 World Market Gift Card!! The contest is open to U.S. and D.C. residents 13 years of age and older. You can enter online and find full contest rules and details HERE. Be sure to hurry, though, as this contest ends 12/8/18!
Videos submitted will be judged by a panel of qualified judges (90%) and by public voting (10%). The judges will score each video based on factors of Voice (60%), Performance (20%), and Creativity/Originality (20%). The Grand Prize winner will be selected by Jessie J.
Can you imagine having your grand prize winning performance chosen by Jessie J and having this amazing opportunity? We always sing a round of Christmas songs while trimming our tree. Who know where your holiday enthusiasm and talents could lead!
Christmas music and tree trimming totally go hand-in-hand, don’t they? It’s always at the center of the holiday season celebrations. This is a very special tradition in our home, a time when everyone gathers together to decorate, share holiday stories and warm up with a cup of hot cocoa (or two!)
We often invite our family and friends over to help with our Christmas tree trimming celebrations. This year, my son’s best friend has just moved into her first apartment and will have her first Christmas tree. She’s always loved joining our family for the festivities so we thought the perfect housewarming gift for her would be to share the magic of our holidays with her.
We’re putting together a Christmas Tree Trimming basket filled with everything she needs to create her own new traditions including a copy of Jessie J’s new Christmas album.
I found everything I needed to create a lovely gift basket to treasure at our local St. Matthew’s Cost Plus World Market store. From hot cocoa to cookies to tree trimming goodies and more, they have everything to truly make this gift giving moment special.
To make this a really stand-out gift, we purchased a gorgeous wooden serving trade to serve as the traditional gift basket. This way, our gift recipient will have a convenient way to serve all the treats and hot cocoa during tree trimming time. You can also get creative with your holiday gift wrap. We used clear basket wrap and ribbon to secure the items we selected so we could place them atop the tray and create a more festive look.
Sharing our family traditions with others warms our hearts during the holiday season. It’s like hot cocoa for the soul! If you have the chance to share your love of Christmas music and traditions with the music lovers in your life, do!
And be sure to share the details of the World Market Star Maker Song Contest with the music lovers in your life, too. They could be the next holiday super star!
