Hollywood, California (PRWEB) December 19, 2007
Sultry jazz singer, actress and humanitarian, Cynthia Basinet, has re-released her popular version of the Christmas classic Santa Baby!
A decade ago, the talented beauty recorded the song, as a tribute to Eartha Kitt's version in 1953. Due to illegal downloads on the internet, Basinet's version and her breath-easy sultry voice of jazz perfection, was wrongly mistaken for being that of screen legend, Marilyn Monroe.
Cynthia Basinet is good natured about the whole experience of mistaken identity with Monroe, one of Hollywood's greatest screen icons. In fact Basinet's version started out as a Christmas card gift that she recorded for her then partner, Jack Nicholson.
"When I recorded the song ten years ago, I was kind of hoping for a baby blue sports car from Santa for Christmas," laughs Basinet today.
The fact "Santa Baby" draws international radio play for Cynthia and has garnered her a following of fans worldwide is a testament to the strength of Basinet's talent and golden voice. The actress is listed by jazz critics as one of the best jazz voices in the world today.
Critics have said about Basinet's unique jazz voice, these things: "For Cynthia Basinet, her voice itself is an instrument; in terms of emotional power, it's a lethal weapon. Sensual, emotionally damaged and world-weary, Basinet's vocals have the makings of a film noir femme fatale." - Allaboutjazz.com.
As always, Basinet is all about being a voice that continues to cause global change this Christmas. Her work with Sahara refugees garnered the actress and singer with a Nobel Peace Prize nomination in 2005. No one was more surprised, then the fun loving star by her nomination.
Cynthia Basinet's, "10th Anniversary release of Santa Baby" is available online at: iTunes. The playful and fun Basinet, included a karaoke version for this special commemorative CD release so her avid fans worldwide can now sing along with her sultry golden tones, too.
