Katharine McPhee and David Foster drop a Christmas EP Christmas Songs today (Nov 25) It’s the first time the married couple have recorded together in 17 years. Available now digitally, the set will be available on CD on December 2.
The Grammy winning producer has produced memorable Christmas music with artists such as Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Rod Stewart and Mary J Blige. It’s only fitting he now produces one with his wife. The two tied the knot in 2019. They had a son, Rennie David Foster in 2021.
Says Foster about the recording, ” We haven’t recorded together in 17 years so we thought it might be time to do it again! Kat has the most beautiful voice and she doesn’t know how to deliver less than a perfect vocal every time! When you make Christmas music, you literally get a free pass to do whatever you like-the freedom for me as a producer was so much fun – no pressure.”
Katharine added, “I haven’t been focusing on being a recording artist, but then I married the best record producer and the deal was sealed! We started this process out in our living room for fun and then it turned into a full-fledged, “let’s do this for real.” David’s history with Christmas albums is legendary – it became a labor of love for him.”
The Fosters also plan a small 6 city east coast tour and will incorporate the new songs into the show. The tour starts December 1 in Stonybrook, NY and ends in Medford, MA on December 8. They will be back at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas on December 16 and 17.
The couple are set to perform on Christmas in Rockefeller Center on NBC Wednesday November 30 at 8 pm. Additionally, the two will appear on two ABC specials, The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration on Sunday November 27 at 8 pm and Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade on December 25 at 10 am. ET/PT
Katharine also has the launch of her KMF Jewelry line launching week of November 7th. She also has TV appearance planned to promote the line.
