Listen to a snip of the new Michael Johns Christmas song, “Another Christmas” (thanks to mjo) right here:

I don’t make final judgements on sound clips, but as always…I dig Michael’s soulful vibe.

The plan is to release the song digitally on December 9, with proceeds going to charity.

A bit of slightly aged news here: Michael performed in New York City 11/12 at The American Australian Association 60th Benefit. MJO has some nice photos right here.

Michael performed à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s All Wrong But Ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s All Rightà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ , A Beatles Medley, and à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“New York State Of Mind.” According to MJO,   Rupert Murdoch personally invited Michael to participate.

The event featured a preview of the upcoming Baz Luhrmann movie “Australia,” which stars Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman.

    I’m generally not a huge fan of Christmas music, but judging from this snippet, I’m going to make an exception!
    I love Michael’s voice and it sounds like a heartfelt song.
    I’m also impressed that the proceeds are going to charity. Good on you Michael Johns!

    Wow, I love, love this snipet..I can’t wait to hear the rest of the song. That soulful voice is in my bones.

    You know what? I like the sound of this. It’s got the vibe of a song you’d sing in a pub with your pals with your arms draped across each other’s shoulders. I’m pleasantly surprised, Michael Johns.

    I love this clip! His voice and soulful sound just resonates with me! I’m sure he misses Christmases spent with his mum and family in Oz. Can’t wait for the full song! The fact that he wrote this song himself shows he has more talent than just his fantastic voice and that this is for charity shows his compassion. Just love it!!!

    Very very nice! I’m not in the habit of downloading Christmas tunes but I think I’ll make an exception for this one. Furthermore, Mariah Carey’s (cough) “All I want for Christmas is You” was starting to feel a little lonely on my ipod.

    I hope this is made available on iTUnes so I can get it.

    A little off topic…I might get to see MJ today. He’s doing a meet and greet session at the mall today, courtesy of one of his mall tour sponsors, Mossimo. He’s also appearing at an afternoon TV musical variety show here in a little while.

    I’m so impressed with this song, it sounds beautiful and heartfelt. The fact that it’s for charity makes it even better. The song should be available to buy on iTunes December 9th, can’t wait! I want to listen to the whole thing ;)

    I saw MJ today. He is one good-looking man.

    MJO has a video of MJ singing Bohemian Rhapsody (with local artists) on the Philippine Sunday show ASAP.
