Did you know actress/singer Kailey Swanson and actor/singer LJ Benet have been performing together on Hollywood soundstages for almost five years? This holiday, they once again team up to treat music fans to a holiday classic with the “The Christmas Song.” Swanson, who recently guest-starred in Disney XD’s “Kickin’ It” and the new ABC series, “Mixology,” has a burgeoning following on YouTube and AwesomenessTV. She first met Benet – an an award winning actor who co-starred in the alien thriller Dark Skies and plays the hilarious Karl Fink on Disney Channel’s “Dog With A Blog” – when the pair co-starred in the equity musical, Big.
Later, they co-starred in The Legend of Beaver Dam, a Sundance Film Festival award winner. But the chemistry really takes off when they share a microphone and perform together in music videos.
This is a beautiful song. LJ really captures the moment and I have no doubt the late Mel Torme, who wrote “The Christmas Song,” would be proud.
LJ had this to say about Kailey:
Kailey is an amazing singer; she lights up a room. And guys, the camera loves her, too!
Swanson and Benet were thrilled with recording and production team of director Jared Sagal of Rockerrazzi Films and producer Rachael Lawrence.
We can’t say enough about the amazing work by Rachael and Jared.
And Mr. Benet added:
They were incredible and we hope the viewers will enjoy the video and have a wonderful holiday!
This is so beautiful!
