Her song “Christmas Wish” also continues to gain heavy rotation every time the Christmas and holiday season roll around.
The release date for the new compilation album has not been revealed yet, according to an entertainment spokesperson the final plans for the album may still be up in the air due to COVID-19. Despite that they hope that this album will bring another resurgence of her music, in turn helping cope with the pandemic.
