Mitch Tambo unveils his own rendition of Christmas classic 'Away in a Manger'

Embrace the holiday cheer and celebrate the joyous moments of the season as Mitch Tambo unveils his incredible rendition of the Christmas classic 'Away in a Manger' in heart-warming Gamilaraay language.

The enchanting lyrics of Away in a Manger have always resonated with Mitch, dating back to his school choir days. Now a proud father, the song holds even more significance. “The words in Away in a Manager tell such a beautiful story which now has a much deeper meaning for me since I became a dad,” Mitch said. “Each time I perform it I picture my baby girl Phoenix, which makes me think of all the parents doing it tough at this time of the year trying to provide for their families.”

Aside from being busy in the studio, the Sony Music artist has been rehearsing for one of the year’s biggest nights - Carols By Candlelight on the Nine Network which will be broadcast on Christmas Eve. Mitch will be adding lots of special festive cheer to the extravaganza when he brings the magic of 'Away in a Manger' to life! Addressing the holiday sceptics, Mitch encourages everyone to kick the grinch to the curb this year and fully embrace the Christmas spirit.

“I love seeing my kids’ faces light up when they open their presents or seeing my loved ones sitting around the table enjoying the festivities,” he said. “I also try
to get into the fun of the day by putting up all our favourite decorations around our house. Let’s just say it’s pretty sparkly when I finish!"

“It’s easy to get cynical about Christmas and for many people I know it’s a challenging time. But for those who dislike the festive season for the sake of it, I say it’s time to nix the grinch and embrace Christmas again.”
