How Jose Mari Chan Wrote a Second Holiday Classic, 'A Perfect Christmas'
Jose Mari Chan endeared himself to generations of Filipinos with the contemporary Christmas classic “Christmas in Our Hearts.” It’s a song that reminds people about the origins of the season: celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. But when Chan’s record producer asked him to write another track for his seminal Christmas album in 1990—this time a secular song that is more radio-friendly—the singer-songwriter got to work.
“A Perfect Christmas” is the result of that request: a romantic holiday tune that Chan said took him only two days to write. In the OG channel’s latest video, Chan discusses the process that led to him writing a second holiday classic, what he thinks about people calling him the “king” of Christmas carols, and what his idea is of a truly perfect Christmas.
