Lonnie Hill - Cold winter in the ghetto 1984

Lonnie Hill born in Tyler TX, proceeded his move into the Gospel world. After advancing in this escapade, he met and performed with a multitude of famous artists such as the renowned Gospel Keynotes. He also shared the stage with other well-known artists such as James Cleveland, the famous Staple Singers, The Mighty Clouds of Joy and the multi-talented Stevie Wonder. Lonnie's talents never seemed to end, especially in the music industry were he has also performed with the fabulous Mr. Edward Hawkins and the talented Isaac Hayes. Later in his music career, Lonnie decided that he wanted to explore more than the Gospel industry.

As he made the transition from Gospel to Rhythm and Blues, Lonnie released his first album entitled "You got Me Running" with his hit singles "Galveston Bay" and "Could It Be Love". His singles were at the top of the charts for 6 weeks in England. This christmas song was originally released in 1984. However, I have the 2002 version as released on Expansion Records.

Note: The above posted single is not played in full
