In the midst of the Holiday Season, slow down, count your blessings, take time to reflect, enjoy your family and friends, and remember the reason for the season. Our Special Encore show this week will help you do just that. We usher in the Holiday Season with music. I am very grateful and thankful to the guest musicians this week as they share with us their expressions, creativity and talent, through their love of music.
At a very young age Bekah dreamed of writing music that would touch nations. Her love for music was instantaneous. Her life dramatically changed once she started writing fluently. Writing music isn’t just a hobby for her, it is an expression of who she is. When she writes, she begin to feel things change in the atmosphere and the words she has written have brought breakthroughs into her life, as well as the lives of others. At the end of the day songwriting is her creative outlet that aids her in releasing her deepest feelings and thoughts.
Eden feels compelled to be a voice to the voiceless. To bring justice to those who feel forgotten and misunderstood, and because of her desire to help, she’s decided to commit her talent for the greater good of giving back. Her new direction landed her an opportunity with a national level organization called, Harvesting Happiness for Heroes. Her new song “InBetween,” coming soon to iTunes was written specifically for Wounded Warriors and Veterans across the world. It is a song of hope, direction and change. A voice for all those who may feel the loss of innocence and dignity.

Hannah Mulholland is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter from Malibu, California. At a young age, Hannah knew that she loved music and performing, and began to play piano at 5 years old. She was very inspired by artists like Faith Hill growing up, which pushed her to write music of her own, in hopes that one day Faith Hill’s songwriters would write for her.
As time went on, songwriting became her passion, and at the age of 12 decided to teach herself how to play guitar. Since then, she has been writing and performing as much as possible, and has been lucky enough to play in venues such as The Cabana Club, and The Whisky A’Go Go, among many others.
Hannah also participated in the 2011 season of American Idol, where she made it to the top 100. She has also performed for countless fundraisers and events around the city of Malibu. This past year, she was asked to perform at the Miss Malibu Beauty Pageant, and was selected as the “Upcoming Female Vocalist Of Malibu” at the 2011 Malibu Music Awards. She is currently in the process of making her debut album.
