About the Album

Singing sensation Bianca Ryan, season 1 winner of America's Got Talent, ushers in the holiday season with her latest EP, True Meaning of Christmas. Ryan's second holiday project was released digitally November 3. According to Anthony Marinelli, composer, conductor and musician, "Bianca Ryan sings her songs with more heart and soul than any artist I have ever heard. Don't miss out!." To complement the release of her holiday EP, Ryan will also host her second TV Christmas Special, Bianca Ryan Christmas Special, airing on all Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) stations around the world from Thanksgiving through the New Year.

Ryan, 15, whose voice has been hailed as "extraordinary and mature" by Grammy-winning record producer David Foster, chose a mix of classics and original songs for this holiday collection. Selections include a pop version of The Christmas Song, a soulful arrangement of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and an intimate version of When Christmas Comes to Town (Polar Express). The EP also features two original songs written with album producer Anthony Marinelli; the first song, True Meaning of Christmas, also co-written with Siedah Garrett (Man in the Mirror) is a stirring duet with pop gospel sensation Brent Jones. The second song, If You Believe, will surely become a holiday classic.
