Kristen Bell Releases Modern Day Holiday Song ‘Text Me A Merry Christmas’ (VIDEO)
Kristen Bell teamed up with the a capella group Straight No Chaser for a new modern day Christmas song, “Text Me A Merry Christmas,” which debuted on Monday. The tune realistically captures what it is like to celebrate the holiday season in our cellphone-obsessed world.
Bell, who famously voiced Anna in Frozen, belts out the song’s catchy lyrics. “Text me a Merry Christmas/Let me know you care,” she sings. “Just a word or two of text from you/Will remind me you’re still there.” Throughout the track, Bell and Straight No Chaser tackle important subjects like choosing the best emojis and sending a text versus a Facebook message or a tweet. And don’t even bother leaving a voice mail because, according to the song, it’s a thing from “Christmas past.”
The pregnant actress and singer opens up about recording the song in a new interview with RyanSeacrest.com. “‘Text Me Merry Christmas’ was so much fun to record,” she says. “The lyrics are smart and creative, and musically it was a blast to sing a cappella with Straight No Chaser. I’m excited to be a part of what could be a Christmas classic for our current generation.”
