Louis York ring in the holidays early this year with the music video for “What Does Christmas Mean?” featuring The Shindellas.
An unexpected treat off their new EP, Masterpiece Theater: Act III, the song is a modern yuletide gem with classic doo-wop stylings that is a perfect holiday party starter.
The visual is set up in a magical glimmering room. Claude Kelly handles the lead vocals, while Chuck Harmony provides the festive, dance-ready groove on the keys. Emerging female trio The Shindellas handle background harmonies and add their own solos, offering an infectious compliment to Claude.
“There’ll be snow on the ground / There’ll be lights in the trees / There’ll be love all around / But if you’re not with me / Tell me what does Christmas mean?” he sings. The ladies follow him adding: “I know you can’t be here this year / But understand, when you’re gone I feel no cheer, in my heart.”
Including a message to fans with the video, Louis York said: “Encompassing all things showbiz! Glitz, glam, expression, emotion, and a message built within the essence of the holidays. With the Shindellas we’re here to welcome you into the Christmas spirit our way.”
