LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Afro Unicorn®, a fully licensed character brand founded by April Showers, is thrilled to announce the release of its second annual holiday EP this season. Continuing the magical holiday journey, An Afro Unicorn Holiday Deluxe is presented by Afro Unicorn Entertainment and distributed by Connect Music.
The merry and bright ten-track collection evokes the spirit of the holidays and is available now across platforms. Among the five new tracks, Feliz Navidad is a Spanish bilingual song that stands out for celebrating the brand’s Afro-Latina character, Divine. Other brand-new songs to keep the festivities going strong all season long include Holiday Treats, Happy Afro Unicorn Halloween, and An Afro Unicorn Thanksgiving.
An Afro Unicorn Holiday Deluxe also features such standouts as Magical Gift, performed by Grammy Award Winning Anthony Hamilton, joined by Brooklyn Marie, an up-and-coming 11-year-old artist and professional voice-over actor for Cocomelon® on the EP’s title track. It expresses the tone of Afro Unicorn, spreading holiday magic through acts of kindness. Spread Love promotes patience and positivity; it features Lara D, international recording artist for The Voice® whose Middle Eastern and Moroccan roots shine in this song full of eclectic drum beats and traditional rhythms. Featured artists are Brielle Mariah, Kalipop, and the All-Star Kids.
Behind the album’s cheerful and upbeat tone, Afro Unicorn’s latest EP aligns with the empowerment-led brand’s mission to uplift and champion children of color, giving them the confidence they need to celebrate how magical, unique, and divine they truly are. Indeed, Afro Unicorn has become a symbol of authenticity, creativity, and representation.
Ms. Showers, a visionary entrepreneur who became a pioneer as the first female, Black-owned business to own a licensed character brand in major retail, says: “This holiday edition speaks to our social impact movement and expresses our core values to normalize Black beauty.”
Askia Fountain is the Executive Producer of the Afro Unicorn Holiday Deluxe EP, bringing together a prolific team of producers, singers, and songwriters. Fountain is best known for being an integral part of the A&R team that developed the 2019 Grammy-nominated album “Victory Lap” by Nipsey Hussle. He has helped foster the careers of artists from Nas, Neyo, and Dreamdoll. “We produced this soulful EP with intentionality. It represents our ongoing commitment to children’s music, animation, and live-action. It has a profound message about the true meaning of the holidays, celebrating creativity and support one another,” adds Mr. Fountain, Vice President of Afro Unicorn Entertainment and the company’s Brand Manager.
