Multi-award winning, British, a cappella sensation VADÈ joined forces with R&B legend, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men and multi-platinum producer & songwriter, Erik “Blu2th” Griggs to release their first ever Christmas single, an a cappella arrangement of ‘Christmas Wish’. The single speaks of the excitement and anticipation surrounding two lovers sharing their first Christmas together.
Marked by the signature Vadé sound, filled with soulful harmonies and mesmerizing melodies, ‘Christmas Wish’ was written by Shawn Stockman and Erik “Blu2th” Griggs. For many, Christmas is a time to give and receive gifts, eat, drink and be merry, but this year Vadé is bringing the focus back to love and that ‘special someone’ with Christmas Wish.
“Having the opportunity to collaborate on a track with one of our biggest influences has been an indescribable experience. Boyz II Men paved the way for artists like ourselves and so working with Shawn is such an honour,” Roy Crisp (Vadé member) explained.
“It’s not everyday you come across a musical genius who understands our art form so intrinsically. Working with a producer of Blu2th’s calibre who both stretches us and embraces our creativity is literally a dream come true! I can’t wait for the world to hear what else we’ve got cooking,” added Philip Yeboah (lead singer of Vadé).
Vadé’s artistry and innovation has captured the attention of music lovers all around the world. Over the past year, they have accumulated over 10M views of their musical arrangements across their social media channels and have engaged with their fans through duets on TikTok. Vadé is keen to continue sharing their gift and causing listeners to reimagine music through a cappella by collaborating with artists and together, creating magic that transcends time.
