Regarding Christmas titles:
IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE MISTLETOE is now considered a standard by most print companies. Warner Bros., Hal Leonard, and Cherry Lane currently use it in many of their folio books. It's been recorded by Barbra Streisand, Barbara Mandrell, Vikki Carr, and Kathie Lee Gifford and has sold over 5.1 million records. It's published in choral and in piano/vocal single sheet by Hal Leonard. Non-exclusive folio print rights are available. Ditto non-exclusive choral.
WHAT MADE THE BABY CRY? was recorded by a reincarnation of The Platters in 1994, by Country artist Toby Keith in 1995, and by Vikki Carr in 2000. Hal Leonard publishes single sheet. Non-exclusive folio print rights are available. Ditto non-exclusive choral.
FIRST DAY OF THE SON was released by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir in 1995 on Warner/Alliance. Choral arrangements have been published by Hal Leonard and Word Music. Non-exclusive folio print rights are available. Ditto non-exclusive choral.

HOORAY FOR CHRISTMAS was released by Vikki Carr in 2000. Piano/vocal arrangments have been included in books published by Warner Bros. Publications.
Regarding Hanukkah titles:
HAPPY HANUKKAH, MY FRIEND is the first truly successful contemporary Hanukkah song ever to get airplay on AC/MOR/Pop radio. It is featured in piano folio books by Warner Bros., Hal Leonard, and Cherry Lane. It's been performed on network TV specials by such luminaries as Anita Baker, Anne Murray, Johnny Mathis, Vince Gill, Jack Jones, Barbara Mandrell, Marilyn McCoo and others. Because of its inspiring lyric about peace, friendship, and brotherhood between Christians and Jews, it became Hal Leonard's best selling Hanukkah choral piece ever published in the educational market.
LIGHT THE CANDLES OF FREEDOM, our follow up piece to "HHMF" is featured in several Warner Bros. folios and was Hal Leonard's second biggest Hanukkah choral seller ever.
Because of their contemporary nature, both of the above Hanukkah songs are becoming the most often used Hanukkah songs featured in new sheet music Christmas folio books. Non-exclusive folio print rights are available. Ditto non-exclusive choral.
Piano/vocal arrangements by Phillip Keveren are available for folio use on:
