The Wallis is thrilled to work with For The Record (Love Actually Live) on this very special Christmas show.
The Songwriter behind massive, international hits by Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Avicii, and Little Big Town, with solo material heard all over radio, television, and film, Audra Mae, somehow found herself in her old backyard. In less than a year, a pandemic changed her audience from a 58K+ sold-out crowd at Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden down to two: her 7 year old twin niece and nephew in Edmond, Oklahoma. Finding herself far across party lines during the turmoil of civil unrest, she felt both home and a thousand miles from it. But in that backyard of her past, a pair of the sweetest faces you’ve ever seen look up and asked their Mae Mae to sing.
Songs of Joy & Peace grew from that simple reminder that a song can mend the heart, a word can comfort in the face of fear, music can burst in the soul like a belly laugh, and love can suddenly feel like the most precious gift. Brand new and just the same all at once. That thousand mile drive she made a million times had become a journey to the heart of things, a real road home.
In a holiday season when everything seems upside down and inside out, only LOVE can put everything in its right place.
