Christmas (The Way It's Meant To Be)


Written by Clarry Bean and Andy Merryweather, “Christmas (The Way It’s Meant To Be)” is a song which carries a unique and powerful message for Christmas 2018.


Penned as a musical tribute to Clarry’s late wife Christine who passed away in the lead up to Christmas 2017, it’s a song which will resonate and connect with anyone who has lost a loved one. A song about love and bravery, and how positivity and joy in adversity can impact on all our lives.

As a song, 'Christmas (The Way It’s Meant To Be)’ comes from quite a different angle and offers a unique perspective on Christmas. With all the uncertainty and negativity in the world, people may have a need for a positive and consoling message, especially at Christmas time, and this song achieves that.

Sung with true emotion by Clarry, with additional vocals from son Danny and daughter Abby, the recording features a backing chorus comprised of many of Christine’s relatives and friends. 

Clarry is enormously proud of the recording and everyone involved with the song, especially his children Danny and Abby, his immensely talented co-writer Andy, and the record’s brilliant engineer Damon.

25% of all proceeds from the sale of the recording will be divided equally between two registered charities: Prospect Hospice and Vasculitis UK.


'Christmas (The Way it’s Meant To Be)' will be officially released on Friday 7th December 2018 and is available for pre-order now.
