THE ALDI CHRISTMAS FM SONG CONTEST 2021 - WINNER

Congratulations to Phil Redmond, the winner of The Aldi Christmas FM Song Contest 2021!  The winning song ‘Home for Christmas’ will now be added to the Christmas FM playlist and Phil will receive a €250 gift card from Aldi – congratulations.

Thanks to everyone for voting and to all the finalists and entrants for participating.

THE WINNER:

SONG A: ‘Home For Christmas’ Phil Redmond

Phil Redmond is a singer songwriter from Dublin. The idea for this song ‘Home For Christmas’ came to him when he was thinking about people who were away last year for Christmas and how they will feel coming home this year,  to finally visit family and friends for the first time in a couple of years.

THE OTHER FINALISTS:

SONG B: ‘White Wexford Christmas’ Molly and Maisie O’ Reilly

White Wexford Christmas is sung by young sisters Molly & Maisie who live in the sunny South East of Ireland. They are aged just 10 & 13 years old.  This song was written by their Mum, Paula O’Reilly.  The girls had great fun in the studio recording this Christmas song!

SONG C: ‘Fire’ Ardú

Ardú is a six voice vocal band based in Dublin. They create music using just their voices and there are no instruments used on the track.  They focus on arranging songs by Irish singer songwriters. This version is an alternative take on a Christmas song, with darker undertones matching the nervousness and excitement felt on Christmas Eve.

SONG D: ‘Hitch me a ride’ John MacEvilly

‘Hitch me a ride’ is sung by Daniel Thomas from Mayo, and written by amateur songwriter John MacEvilly from Dublin and was recorded earlier this year. They hope that the song resonates with everyone during this festive month of December.
