Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Michael Minelli Cover

I’ve posted about my superstar of a boyfriend, the talented Michael Minelli a few times before, and today I’m doing so again!

He just covered ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ & filmed a fun little video last Monday! I popped in at the shoot (after RHOBH, obviously) to bring the boys some cookies. I ended up staying the whole time to help them out with some shots, but oh my gosh was it freezing!! It makes me laugh how calm & relaxed they always look in their final videos when all I can think about is how cold/hot/tired/hungry/etc they were at the time.

I wanted to share some pictures I took that night! Unfortunately, I was shivering so much that they ended up being a bit blurry, luckily, they still look handsome as ever 🙂

Now that you’ve seen some fun behind the scenes pics, here is the final product! It’s beautiful, it’s festive, it’s been replaying in my car, phone, at my desk & will continue to do so this holiday season!

If you like it, share it – and be sure to subscribe to Mike’s YouTube channel, follow him on Twitter & “like” his page on Facebook!

Behind the Scenes of the “I’m On” Music Video

If you follow me on Twitter or have read some of my previous blog posts, you may have noticed me talk about my boyfriend, Michael Minelli here and there. For those who don’t know, he is an aspiring musician!

Mike & I at one of his shows 🙂

He has quite the resume under his belt, he’s opened for some huge bands and artists, and was recently featured on PerezHilton for his cover of Katy Perry’s “Part of Me“.

Love that Perez finds my man seksiiii 😉

He has accomplished so much, and continues to work very, very hard…he inspires me everyday!

Now let it be known… he and I are completely different. Literally opposites. He is an R & B, Rap, & Hip-hop die hard, and I pretend that my life is narrated by country songs (it’s pretty easy to figure the rest out)… but in the strangest way, we’re exactly the same. We have the same morals, goals, and dreams, we try be one anothers backbone, and it helps to keep us on the same page. 🙂

I like to be as supportive as possible, and take advantage of opportunities to be present at his shows, shoots, and everything in between. Recently he was featured on a track with some talented CT artists- Ricky Tan, Jitta on the Track, Jigz the Flyer, and Joey Franchize. I decided to tag along to the video shoot, and thought it’d be fun to make a post about it. So I spent the day taking pictures, tweeting, and of course, being a cheerleader…it was a fun day! Check out the pictures and final video below!

They shot everything at a local skate park.

All of the guys getting down! The man in the middle with the huge beard worked at the park and made a few cameos! 😉
Mike had some of his boys come out to be in his shots- Ron, Mike, Shelly, and Austin .
What a fashion statement huh? I love Shelly, and the fact that his sneakers have tails LOL
Mike shooting his verse.
Group shots
Mike & Bobby setting up a scene.
All of the guys again. I'm a new Joey Franchize (in the dolphin sweatshirt) fan! He's a DJ on Hot 93.7 and such a nice guy! 🙂
Me and my man at the end of the shoot 🙂

We had a fun day, all of these guys are so talented! I became a huge fan of this song after hearing it on repeat for hours during the shoot ;)!  The video came out really great…check it out below and make sure you watch till the end to see Mike’s verse! 😉
