Bellevue A&E Events | Dec. 13

Bellevue singer Nancy Bos has released her own CD of Christmas classics entitled Christmas Wish.

The CD was recorded and produced in Bellevue at Rainstorm Studio, with Katy Kavanaugh behind the mixing board. Collaborations on the CD include pianist and former Bellevue resident Andy Carr, guitarist Renante Amador from Bellevue’s Aldersgate United Methodist Church, Broadway coach and singer Robert Edwin and Bos’ own 10 year old daughter, Lindsey Costlow, joining her for a duet of Silent Night.

Part of Bos’ project is to help children in third-world countries. She is donating 10 percent of all Christmas Wish CD sales to the Nepalese Youth Opportunity Foundation, a group that rescues Nepalese girls from bondage and places street orphans in an orphanage and school.

Christmas Wish is available through CDBaby, Amazon and I-Tunes or by contacting Box directly at
