Out singer-songwriter Steve Grand on
Monday released a sexy video for a cover of Mariah Carey's All I
Want For Christmas Is You.
The 25-year-old Grand burst on the
scene in 2013 with his self-produced All-American Boy, which
tells the story of a man's unrequited love for another man. The video
immediately went viral on YouTube.
Grand told Billboard that his new
project came together in less than four days.
“I feel really good about it,” he
said, “and hopefully it will spread a lot of warm, holiday cheer.”

jamming and I started playing [All I Want For Christmas Is You]

Grand said that his recording was
inspired by Michael Buble's 2011 cover.
“It was a big challenge,” Grand
said of recording the song and creating the video in a couple of
days. “But it was also really, really fun.”
Grand stars opposite actor Trevor
LaPaglia in the video. Grand's cover of All I Want For Christmas
Is You can be purchased
