Celebrate "Christmas in Manhattan" with Ernie Haase & Signature Sound as the GRAMMY-nominated quartet releases the music video for the original holiday song from their Gaither Music Group album A Jazzy Little Christmas. Watch the video below, directed by Jeremy Ryan, shot by Ryan and Doug Stuckey and produced by Haase and Ryan in New York City.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound recorded A Jazzy Little Christmas in New York City with Tony Bennett's former musical director and pianist Billy Stritch, award-winning producer Wayne Haun and some of New York's finest musicians. "Christmas in Manhattan," described as "a modern-day 'Silver Bells' of sorts (Hallels)," was written by Haase, Haun and Joel Lindsey.

A portion of proceeds from A Jazzy Little Christmas benefit New York Cares' Winter Wishes program. The Winter Wishes program partners with family shelters, public housing facilities and public schools across the five boroughs of New York City to provide gifts to children and teens during the holidays. New York Cares is the largest volunteer network in New York City and is a network affiliate of Points of Light, the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, which was founded by Former President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

Parade.com recently exclusively premiered a video of Ernie Haase & Signature Sound performing "Christmas in Manhattan" live with "sweetly layered vocal harmonies and nostalgic jazz standard vibes (Parade)." Fans can catch the world-renowned quartet performing "Christmas in Manhattan" and other favorites from the new holiday project live on A Jazzy Little Christmas Tour. The shows, reminiscent of the sounds of The Four Freshmen with the jazz of Tony Bennett, run through Dec. 22.

A Jazzy Little Christmas debuted at No. 1 on SoundScan's Christian Seasonal Sales chart and Southern Gospel Sales chart, Top 10 on Billboard's Jazz Albums chart and Traditional Jazz Albums chart and No. 20 on Billboard's Christian Album Sales chart. The project will be advertised as part of a special television offer on DISH TV, DirecTV, TBN, RFD-TV, GaitherTV, FamilyNet, CTN, GMC, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN as well as on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV in Canada.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with GRAMMY-nominated Ernie Haase & Signature Sound! The group takes us back to the early days of quartets with this new recording, reminiscent of the sounds of the Four Freshmen and the jazz of Tony Bennett. Produced by Bennett's former music director Bill Stritch and award-winning Wayne Haun, the release features a three-piece jazz band and intricate harmonies performing holiday classics and sacred songs that resound the joy and miracle of Christmas.
