Christmas with OtB Alum Young Jean Lee Dec 10, 2010

We've got just the thing to brighten your holiday this year!  A lonely Christmas song by OtB alum Young Jean Lee.

I wake up Christmas morning
No presents and no tree
No friends or neighbors calling
No loving family
I pour a bowl of cereal and turn on the TV
A hundred different channels
A hundred shows for me.
