I’ll Be Home For Christmas – Roy Firestone

This heart warming video of Roy Firestone singing I’ll be home for Christmas will help put the upcoming holidays into perspective.

Roy Firestone is probably best known as a sports commentator and journalist. You might remember him in the movie “Jerry McGuire” to whom Cuba Gooding Jr said those infamous words to; “Don’t Make Me Cry”.

Roy is also a charismatic interviewer. Sports Illustrated calls Firestone “The best interviewer in the business”
(adding: “That includes, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters, Mike Wallace, Morley Safer, any and all of them.”)

He always puts a positive spin in his interviews that leads the viewer to optimism, hope and perseverance in their everyday walk of life.

It seems very fitting that the profession “singer” would be added to his eclectic repertoire of skills.

He is truly a delightful person and I hope you’ll enjoy his uplifting rendition with “help” from some men and women in the military who are serving our country.

    Your brave young men and women are losing their lives defending the vested interests of the Arma Industry. Look at all the victims of the Afghan and Iraq adventures and show me a BUS or a CHEYNEY or a BLAIR. Masses of innocent villagers are dying in Afghanistan caught between these things without a pilot and their Taliban. And millions have been orphaned/widowed in Iraq by an invading flotilla DEFENDING a country 5000 miles away. God Bless America and its Arma Industry!

    May God continue to cover and protect you while you sacrifice for your country by leaving loved ones behind. We thank you and honor you for such and pray that you will soon return to your “home” to be surrounded by those you care about.

    Not only the warriors, our men and women on foreign soil, but look at the faces and emotion on the husbands, wives and children at home supporting them.
