Ian in Your Ear: Christmas for a Cause

OK, I confess: I'm not the biggest fan of Christmas songs but here's one that makes me grin because it's for a good cause. And it's produced by one of my old Miami neighbors, Desmond Child (quite a house he's got down there, I assure you). He's also worked with everyone from Aerosmith to Ricky Martin to Katy Perry.

I'm totally into The Stunners' "Santa Bring My Soldier Home" and it's perfect to send to your loved one overseas. Check out their Web site (they are also donating to the USO in an effort to raise money for soldier’s families who need it most) and, if you like, there's more to come –- the group's debut full-length album comes out early next year. What a way to ring in 2010.
