Christmas at Rivenmaster’s Place 2012

Christmas 2012

This is our fourth Christmas here at Rivenmaster’s Place, and with each passing year we are blessed with an even greater abundance of new talented youngsters from all over the world.  This year has been no exception and without question has been our biggest and most successful year yet!  I want to thank each and every artist, their families, managers and promoters for their contributions to this site. Without them, Rivenmaster’s Place would not exist.  We also would like to take this time to wish each and every one a Merry Christmas.  Of course to you our readers and subscribers we wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and thank you for your continued support and gifts to this site which keep us going year after year!

Last year we brought you on a journey of Christmas’s Past, Present and Future.  This Christmas we are pleased to present you with some extraordinary Christmas videos from some of our talented featured artists.  To conserve space , we have linked each ‘Song Title’  and ‘artists photo’ to their New Christmas Video.  After viewing each video, please be sure to visit their websites and subscribe to their social media sites.

In 2007, an aspiring young singer stepped onto the stage of England’s enormously popular TV program “Britain’s Got Talent, flashed an adorable gap-toothed smile and instantly won the heart of the notoriously difficult to please Simon Cowell – yes, that Simon Cowell – as well as the British viewing public . In just a couple of minutes, a true star had been born. What made this feat all the more remarkable was the fact that Connie Talbot was just six years old.

Connie was born November 20th, 2000. She currently attends private  school in her hometown near Birmingham, England. Connie lives with her mother Sharon, her father Gavin, and her older siblings, brother Josh and sister Mollie.

Violet was the first person to recognize Connie as a talented singer, yet sadly she died before Connie became well known internationally. Connie sang Amazing Grace at her grandmother’s funeral.

Since then, Connie has become an international phenomenon, with appearances all around the globe. She has accumulated millions upon millions of YouTube views and has garnered glowing media attention. The Guinness Book of World Records certified Connie with two accolades… youngest artist in the UK ever to reach the charts and the youngest ever to receive a gold record.
