Go Fish YouTube clip viewed more than 1.5 Million times

Press Release: A YouTube.com fan-produced video of Go Fish’s “Christmas With A Capital ‘C’” has now been viewed more than 1.4 million times to date, with over 1 million hits in the past week alone. The song, which also features comedian Brad Stine, is strongly resonating with Americans opposed to recent attempts to eliminate public usage of the word Christmas.

"What makes this song stand out in the annual ‘Merry Christmas’ vs. ‘Happy Holidays’ debate is the fact that we get to the core of why it's an issue,” said Go Fish founding member Jamie Statema. “Jesus came to save us from our sin, and Christmas is a holiday we should be free to celebrate openly. Regardless of which side you are on, surely we can all agree that at Christmastime it's okay to say the word Christmas!"

“Christmas With A Capital ‘C’” is featured on Go Fish’s 2006 Christmas recording, Snow. Showcasing the group’s signature a cappella harmonies, Snow was produced by Darren Rust and Statema and features 10 selections, including the Statema-penned “Christmas With A Capital ‘C.’”

An emerging force in family entertainment, Go Fish’s latest recording, Snazzy, released in October. The Minneapolis-based trio has been covered by such national media as the “Today” Show, American Profile and Focus on the Family magazine, among other outlets. Go Fish live performances have attracted sell-out crowds across the country, including an audience of 14,000 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Too true. At least there are a few people brave enough to take a stand about it, I imagine that is why the video is so popular.

There is also a nice Youtube a cappella rendition of other songs, videoed in front of a Christmas tree by a mother, when the Go Fish Guys came to sing to her sick child.
