Former Miss Houston and Top 10 U.S. Miss World Erica Lane releases her new Christmas single, "The Friendly Beasts." Lane's arrangement of the old English tune is a nod to the animals that may have been present at the time of Christ's birth. More importantly, the song illustrates the importance of the Lord's coming as a blessing to the lives of all creatures on earth.
The single is quickly climbing the charts. For the week ending November 25th, "The Friendly Beasts" landed at #8 on New Music Weekly's Indie Music Single Chart, and #61 on the Hot 100, ahead of new single from Shania Twain, Black Eyed Peas, Charlie D'Amelio and more. The single also debuted at #42 on BILLBOARD's Monitored AC (Adult Contemporary) Chart, and at #55 on The Mediabase Monitored AC Chart.
"It feels great to see such a positive response to my single 'The Friendly Beasts,'" says Lane. "For the last few years, I've had to shift my focus to some pretty serious life things, and being able to release music again in this season is a huge blessing. This song is organic, hopeful, and nostalgic. It leaves you with a sense of thankfulness for the gifts that God gave through the birth of His Son."
