Gospel Jazz Saxophonist, Richard D’Abreu, Jr., Celebrates Birthday with Jazzy Rendition of Birthday Classic

(Richmond, VA) – January 20, 2021 – “Happy Birthday” is one of today’s most recognizable songs.

Gospel Jazz Saxophonist Richard D’Abreu, Jr. loves the song. A favorite of his for years, the gifted musician, who has toured internationally and played for artists such as James Taylor, Patti LaBelle and Max Roach, decided to give the song a jazzy twist for his own birthday, on January 20th. He released the song, “Happy Birthday (from Me)”, just in time for his special day. The new track is currently available on all digital platforms including Apple Music.

The one-and-a-half-minute rendition is smoothly executed with D’Abreu’s signature sound. His mastery of the saxophone is front and center on “Happy Birthday (from Me)”. He is excited to release the track; one reason is that he is blessed to see another year. He says, “This song is a celebration for me because I am extremely grateful to have reached my 51st birthday! But it is also a celebration from me to all of you: first to all my fellow January Babies, like Dr. King and so many others, who were born in ‘The First and Best Month,’ then to everyone all over the world, whenever you were born, to help you make your (or a loved one’s) day extra special. Happy Birthday (from Me)!”
