“Home for Christmas” by Dublin singer songwriter Phil Redmond has been announced as the winner of The Aldi Christmas FM Song Contest for 2021. The song contest attracts hundreds of entries each year – vying to be crowned the winner by our extensive national and international audience. More than ever this year, Christmas FM is delighted to support up-and-coming Irish artists. The winning song has been added to the Christmas FM playlist for this year, joining festive classics from Mariah, Wham, Slade and so many more.
Speaking about the song, winner Phil Remond, said: “I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who voted for my song ‘Home for Christmas’. I was delighted to make the final four and then to go on and win the competition against such good entries – I am over the moon!
I got the idea to write this song ‘Home for Christmas’ last year, as it was such a tough time for most. It was sad that people were not able to spend time with their loved ones, so getting the chance to come back home this year is even more special. You appreciate the little things so much more now. Just knowing my song is being played on Christmas FM is the best feeling so thank you so much and Happy Christmas everyone!”
