There is definitely a new year coming. So many have great hope that 2021 will be nothing like the year we are finally about to end.
There are so many who have lost jobs, lost hours at work, homes and lost so much more.
But here, we are thinking positively. This coming year is going to be a MUCH better year.
Wish I could guarantee it. If wishing would make it so, it would be.
Until then, let’s start with some good news. Last week we had the full-fledged Chris Bellamy Live on Facebook event. And it was a HUGE success.
There will a new Chris Bellamy Live on Facebook on New Year’s Eve. So make plans now to join in, hear some great music, short stories behind some of the songs, and chat with others watching.
Even more good news. As we have mentioned for about the last two months, Chris has had two songs on the rotation with CBRI Radio.
This week we saw the chart ranking the top 100 for the year. Check. It. Out!!
Here are the top 100:

Check out #15 and #32. That’s right! In just about two months time, Mr. Bellamy landed not one, but TWO songs on the top 100. Woot! Woot!
I never post raw photos, but there are just not enough hours in the day sometimes. So, here are a few photos of getting ready behind the scenes before last night’s impromptu live event:
Now, just a reminder that this Thursday evening, YES, New Year’s Eve, Chris will be live on FB from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm.
But first, a musical treat to tide you over:
If you are around tonight at 6:00 pm, check in on Facebook. Chris will be picking some tunes from 6:00 pm to 7:pm.
If we don’t see you then, we will see you Thursday.
Til then be safe!
