I love Christmas! It is the most special holiday of the year to me and I am absolutely thrilled to release a Christmas CD. Hopefully, families will enjoy it every year for a long long time.
Sarantos has had quite a busy year releasing 34 songs and a whole lot of music videos. Sarantos finishes up a busy year with 23 song Christmas CD release.
“The Happiest Time Of The Year”
Sarantos finally released his long-awaited and eagerly anticipated 1st solo artist music album on November 18, 2014. The diversity on this CD was crazy as Sarantos tackled almost every genre imaginable ranging from pop, rock, jazz, rap and country.
One week later on Black Friday Sarantos also released a Christmas album. This was a wonderful collection of 4 brand new original Christmas songs, 10 covers of Christmas classics and 9 inspirational Christmas short stories. Families will enjoy listening to this CD every Christmas season…
“This is always something I wanted to do,” says Sarantos. “I love Christmas! It is the most special holiday of the year to me and I am absolutely thrilled to release a Christmas CD. Hopefully, families will enjoy it every year for a long, long time. It was quite a challenge putting together something unique like this with 23 tracks on it. Just like the best Christmas present you’ve ever gotten, I wanted to keep it a secret. I hope the fans enjoy it and I have only this to say – Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!”
33% of any music-related sales profits from this Christmas CD are going straight to the chosen charity – the Salvation Army. Shoppers always see them in the cold ringing their bell during the holiday season. Now, Sarantos hopes to be able to add something to their red container.

Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos’ father passing away four years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life’s ups and downs, the timing was finally right. And so it began. Sarantos main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.

Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch his music as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same.
