“Raise Your Voice”, December’s 2019 chart-topping single, has breathed new life and purpose into her career. Peaking at #8 on the US Adult Contemporary radio charts, #4 on the Indie Top 30, and #29 on the National Radio Charts, this personal song has been reaching the wounded and those she wrote it for. As a New Music Weekly winner for ‘New Artist of the Year’ Top 40 category, sitting on ballots alongside Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, and Lewis Capaldi on 3 categories (‘Artist of the Year’ (AC and Top 40), and ‘Single of the Year’) she’s consistently carving out a place for herself in the industry.
Her single “When We Were Young”, held #1 status on the Indie charts for 6 consecutive weeks, on both AC and TOP40 US, amongst Top 10 rankings on several other charts. It continues to unveil another story of December’s life until the release of her second LP anticipated for Spring 2021.
