“A VERY MERRY PERRI CHRISTMAS” pairs an all-new seasonal staple, “Something About December,” alongside unique renditions of such Yuletide favorites as The Carpenters’ “Merry Christmas Darling” and Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home For Christmas.”  Produced by multiple Grammy Award winner David Hodges (Evanescence, Kelly Clarkson), the 6-track collection is further highlighted by a magical new take on the John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band classic, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” featuring choral contributions from such diverse artists as Michelle Branch, LP, Bushwalla, and Boys Like Girls’ Martin Johnson.

“I've wanted to make "A VERY MERRY PERRI CHRISTMAS" my whole life,” says Perri.  “Christmas is so big in my family, and I’ve been singing these songs since I was three years old. This EP is a collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs, plus one original, "Something About December" which my brother and I wrote about finding Christmas wherever you are in the world, because it lives in your heart.”

Perri is currently traveling North America as special guest on her good friend (and Atlantic labelmate) Jason Mraz’s epic “TOUR IS A FOUR LETTER WORD.”  The dates – which include an eagerly awaited two-night-stand at Denver’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl – continues through early October (see attached itinerary).

Named as iTunes’ “Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011,” Christina Perri attracted immediate popular and critical applause with her extraordinary debut album, “lovestrong.” Highlighted by the 3x-platinum certified smash, “Jar of Hearts,” the Joe Chiccarelli-produced album entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 among the top 5 upon its release last year.  “lovestrong.” has also proven an unqualified international sensation, with top 5 success in Australia and Ireland as well as top 10 sales in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Perri followed “lovestrong.” with the RIAA platinum certified hit single, “A Thousand Years,” exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic’s “THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.”  The track was a multi-format radio favorite, with top 10 airplay at Hot AC and top 25 spins at CHR/Top 40 outlets nationwide.  What’s more, the “A Thousand Years” companion video was an MTV favorite, earning major play on such platforms as MTV’s AMTV, MTV Hits,, mtvU,, and VH1’s Top 20 Video Countdown.
