LISTEN: Aiden James Releases Holiday Tune

Philly singer-songwriter Aiden James joins Kelly,  Mary J., Leona and a handful of other divas belting holiday tunes this year with the release of “Winter in Los Angeles.” James has spent a lot of time performing in L.A. in 2013.

You might think such specific rules of cookie-reception are over the top, but then, you’ve never looked into the glowing eyes of my nephew Nicholas when, the Christmas after he turned 18, he accepted the tin I handed him with wide, glowing eyes and said, “My own? All for me?” Read more »
