Music: Welcome to Our World Marc Martel & Leigh Nash

Marc Martel is BACK with a full new Christmas EP, "Hark!" and the lead single - a duet with Sixpence None the Richer's Leigh Nash - the Chris Rice classic "Welcome to Our World." After 5 straight years of new Christmas music and SIX straight Billboard Top 10 songs, Marc has established himself as an artist to watch every November!

Marc comments, "I've loved this song since I first heard it as a freshman in college. My roommate and future bandmate, Jason Germain and I used to use it as one of our wake-up alarm songs for the early-morning classes. It's one of those all-year-round songs that just happens to also be a Christmas song, and I've wanted to record it for literally, decades." Martel adds, "I've been a huge fan of Leigh since I first heard her voice on Sixpence's debut, and now I get to record with her. It's pretty awesome and humbling."

The task of reimagining Rice's song, also recorded by Michael W. Smith and several other CCM artists, went to producer Jordan Wiberg at Okanagan Mixing Studios in British Columbia. Martel and Wiberg have collaborated on several tracks over the years, and this one is bound to be their biggest yet.
