Walter “Bunny” Sigler continues to share songs that prove his passion for music goes beyond the soul songs he’s known for. Songs like Instant Funk‘s “I Got My Mind Made Up”, Patti Labelle‘s “Somebody Loves You Baby”, The Whispers’ “Bingo”, Jackie Moore‘s “Sweet Charlie Babe” and The O’Jays “Sunshine” all came from the pen of Bunny Sigler. A gifted singer as well, Bunny’s warm, powerhouse vocals intertwined with a few Christmas classics show why this legendary hitmaker is a moving force in the music industry. His newest album, “When You’re In Love At Christmas Time” showcases Sigler’s musical ability to make any song jingle with a powerful soulful flare.
This soul-stirring album features twelve classic Christmas tracks like “Ave Maria”, “White Christmas” and the project’s lead single, “Little Drummer Boy”. A very familiar seasonal tune, “Little Drummer Boy” is one of Sigler’s favorites. Showcasing a laid-back and soulful sound, Bunny’s rendition brings to mind an easy chair, a roaring fire and egg nog in hand. Sigler knows how to set the scene for Christmas.
“O Holy Night”, another popular track, finds Sigler delivering his signature vocal style on the sacred song. “I’ve been singing ‘O Holy Night’ all my life”, Sigler says. “I knew that if I ever planned to record a Christmas song, it would be ‘O Holy Night,'” he shares. Other memorable cuts include “Winter Wonderland”, “Hark The Herald Angels Sing” and “A Christmas Dream”. Each song is perfectly executed, all to get listeners in the holiday spirit.
