It took an award-winning team working on two continents, recording at Capitol Studios in LA and Abbey Road Studios in London, to bring Giada Valenti’s latest album to fruition. The first single from the renowned singer’s 2022 Holiday album is a gorgeous bilingual interpretation of “Silent Night,” sung in English and Spanish.
Valenti’s choice to sing in both English and Spanish reflects both her ideals and the song’s recording process. “This is a 200-year-old German tune, sung by a native Italian and co-arranged by an American, with performances in London and Los Angeles. Performing it in multiple languages was a way to underscore the song’s message while celebrating the blend of cultures that brought this recording to life.”
“Silent Night / Noche de Paz” kicks off Valenti’s Holiday Celebration project, which will include a television special, a concert tour of the United States, and a full album of Holiday songs. It features several duets with major artists and a carefully selected mix of standards and lesser-known numbers.
The track is produced by 8-time Grammy-winning producer Gregg Field. For this recording Giada was accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
