Gabrielle Ariana Releases New Christmas Single, ‘When Christmas Hurts’

Gabrielle Ariana, a performer hailing from New Jersey, has released her latest single, ‘When Christmas Hurts.’ The piano-driven holiday tune, which is now available on both iTunes and Google Play, celebrates the most joyful and anticipated time of the year.

Unlike well-known Christmas songs, ‘When Christmas Hurts’ touches on some of the harsher parts of the season. Gabrielle poignantly delves into the holiday from a hopeful perspective - it can be a painful time of the year for some, and we must always be reminded to have hope in the face of pain and loss. “Jesus Christ was born for those who are broken and alone,” Gabrielle croons over a hauntingly beautiful soundscape.

Gabrielle is a critically lauded pianist and composer who has received accolades for her compositions and performances dating back to 2009. She has placed numerous times in the NJFMC Composition Contest and in several other events. Graduating at the age of nineteen from Thomas Edison State College with a concentration in Piano Performance, Gabrielle has fostered her creativity extensively in the music ministry of her church where she interned as the Music Director for a year.

‘When Christmas Hurts’ can be found on iTunes and Google Play below, along with Gabrielle’s main website where you can connect with her via social networking.
