“With it being 5 Star’s 40th Anniversary what better than to release my first ever Christmas Song” says Deniece.

“I wanted to celebrate Christmas – one of my favourite times of the year by writing a song which spreads love, celebrates the true meaning of Christmas and makes you want to dance too.

‘Santa Claus is Coming’ follows her recent single ‘Forever Young’ – a feel good infused pop-bop which reached #12 in Music Week’s Pop Chart and went Top Ten in their Black Chart.

It was taken from a new EP which also featured new versions of two Top 10 FIVE STAR classics ‘System Addict’ and ‘Rain or Shine.’
