For the past few years we have posted the song/video for “Bring Him Home Santa” by The Song Trust.  We are bringing it back by popular demand, and as a reminder to remember all of our servicemen and women overseas and away from home for the holidays.

In 2007, a newly formed collaboration known as The Song Trust released this emotional holiday song called “Bring Him Home Santa.” Sung by an anonymous little girl who was 6-years old at the time, the girl is asking Santa to bring her father home for Christmas, the single shot to #29 on the Billboard Hot Country Chart, spawned a viral internet video that received over 600,000 views and solicited tens of thousands of comments from families with parents in the military in three short weeks. ~ Merrykidsmas.com

Following the success of that single, The Song Trust has recorded an entire album filled with songs that would continue to look at the Christmas season from a child’s unique perspective and be sung by real everyday kids. The result is the 2009 holiday release Merry Kidsmas.
