"Pope Benedict XVI has the chance of a Christmas number one in the pop charts after signing a record deal to release an album of him singing chants in the Vatican. It will feature the Pope singing litanies and chants in honour of the Virgin Mary, as well as reciting passages and prayers in Latin, Italian, Portuguese, French and German."
It will be released on CD on November 30 on Universal's Geffen label - which by the way is also home to Marilyn Manson, Timbaland, Guns N' Roses, and Dr. Dre....just to name a few! (hahaha, that is funny to me).
So forget Bing Crosby, The Carpenters, Judy Garland, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Charlie Brown, or even The Chipmunks...it is ALL about Pope Benedict XVI this Christmas Season!!
