Merry Christmas and Thankyou

Written by Jacqui James NIGHT I SAW the always moving video for John Lennon’s Happy Christmas (War Is Over) and it is one of those heartbreaking videos because everything shown in it is still happening and on an escalated level. The world has more wars due to religions and oil. Meanwhile children are caught in such wars; bullied into fighting causes which they have no concept of.

When I heard Guy Sebastian’s Get Along (especially when he performed it on X Factor, I got chills! Guy sums everything up so well with the lyrics:

Dear God, dear soul
Dear Mary, Muhammad
Can we all just get along
Can we all just get along
Dear heart, dear life
Dear soldier, dear martyr
Where did we go wrong,
Can we all just get along.









I wish to send out a big thankyou to all the wonderful agents, record companies, promoters and most importantly the artists/bands who gave their time to do interviews with myself! Also to my readers thankyou for sticking with me!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and may 2013 bring you much happiness and health!

Best wishes,


Jacqui James

I'm an Australian author and music journalist from Melbourne. I've had articles and poetry published in several magazines and newspapers since finishing my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2001. In 2010 Gigs 'n Interviews was born. I launched it with my first big named interview and that was Vanessa Amorosi and then in 2012 I felt unbelievably privileged to interview Ronan Keating. I'm extremely proud of what Gigs 'n Interviews has become as it's seen as a platform for emerging artists and entertainers to be heard.

Looking forward to writing more children's books, I hope to change the wrong perception of children and adults with disabilities as I was born with Severe Cerebral Palsy (like Christy Brown who wrote My Left Foot). People can view my books at
