Family Force 5 "Bulletproof" cover!

These guys are CRAZY!! You probably knew that already, but Family Force 5 recorded a cover of the song "Bulletproof". I kinda like it better than the original!

 

You can also click on the Christmas Pageant album cover to preview their holiday offerings. :)

Operation Santa Claus!

This is a great way to give back to needy kids this Christmas ... by answering "Letters to Santa Claus" that come to the U.S. Post Office!

The Post Office "Elves" noticed that this year more kids are asking for basic needs like coats and shoes, not toys.

Click on "Letters to Santa" to find out more about how you can help. And Merry Christmas!
