Yes, it is Christmas season again here in the Philippines; colorful lights, creative decors, and relaxing carols are everywhere. Some of the country's talented recording artists gathered to give the Filipino people something to listen to while enjoying the most celebrated season in the country.

Last year, I found myself in WILD Grass Studio in Quezon City amazed with all the gadgetry used in coming up with those songs you either buy off the record stores or purchase for digital download.

I was invited by fuseboxx as they are wrapping up the Christmas hymn they came up with, and that day was special because the main man who will bring life to the song is going to hit the studio.

After a few rounds of getting the feel of the song, it's time to take a break...

Recording a song, or let alone, a verse or line in a song can really be tedious.

They went back and forth recording parts of the song until it was agreed everything sounds right.
