The Essential Advent Calendar: December 7

The Essential Advent Calendar: December 7 – Little Mix Premiere Festive Video For ‘One I’ve Been Missing’

It’s December 7 and we ask that you all grab your eggnog and raise your glasses as the globe’s biggest girl group, Little Mix, on the release of their first ever Christmas song!

‘One I’ve Been Missing’ is an instant Christmas classic, a 1950’s inspired ballad and a beautiful ode to festive love, steeped in sleigh bells and luscious harmonies.

Written by the former X Factor Little Mix’s very own Leigh-Anne, along with Tre Jean-Marie, Jez Ashurst, Sinead Harnett and Rachel Furner

Leigh-Anne says:

“We absolutely love Christmas, it’s our favourite time of the year. We’ve always wanted to write and release a Christmas song, we were just waiting for the right moment! The minute I finished writing ‘One I’ve Been Missing’ I couldn’t wait to play it to the other three girls.”

Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as the world’s biggest girl band – they have sold over 50 million records worldwide, collected over 17 million Spotify listeners, received over 3 billion YouTube views, and collated 12 billion streams worldwide.

2019 has witnessed Little Mix win their second Brit Award – this time for Best British Video for ‘Woman Like Me’, and perform the same song live at the Brits. In March, they also won two Global Awards for Best Group and Best Song. Summer 2019 saw them release a brand new single ‘Bounce Back’ with new record label RCA, followed by their 4th EMA Award for Best UK & Ireland Act.

In September they kicked off their massive LM5 Arena Tour, which opened in Madrid, taking in cities across Europe, the UK and Ireland, with an amazing FIVE sold out dates at London’s O2 Arena. The band also launched their own clothing range with Pretty Little Thing in November.

Little Mix have just announced a brand new TV series for BBC One in 2020, Little Mix The Search. The series, made by ModestTV, will see the band creating bands and becoming mentors to a new wave of talent. The singers who make it into new bands will live together and gain access to Little Mix’s inner circle who have contributed to their phenomenal success, including vocal coaches, song writers, producers and stylists.
