Ali & Theo: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

By Kerry Doole

Ali & Theo - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (Slaight Music): The approach of Christmas means it must be time for another Al & Theo song. A seasonal duet from Toronto singers Ali Slaight and Theo Tams has become a regular holiday tradition, one eagerly awaited by lovers of classic Christmas tunes.


The pair first collaborated on a seasonal song back in 2009 with Do You Hear What I Hear, a charity single designed to benefit War Child Canada that went to #1 on the Canadian AC Chart.

A genuine vocal and personal chemistry was quickly sensed, and this has deepened over the decade that has followed. The seasonal singles they released every year were compiled on 2017's 12-song Holiday Collection.

Ths year, the pair has come up with a fresh take on a classic English carol, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, one known for its refrain - "tidings of comfort and joy." Ali & Theo trade lines, then harmonise sweetly. The production features backing vocals and a hint of sleigh bells, enhancing, but never detracting from, the beauty of the two pure voices.

A must for any Christmas playlist you are compiling.

Theo Tams released a solo EP, Call The Doctor, last year, while Ali Slaight is kept busy in her role as Talent Development Coordinator at Slaight Music.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
