WATCH: Another Eagles Player Surprises With His Musical Gift
The Christmas season is here, it is the time of year to enjoy the music we all identify with the Holidays. But in the Tri-State area full of Philadelphia Eagles fans, this is also the time of year we discover that those men who play on the Gridiron are multitalented people outside of the game.
Thanks in large part to Eagles Legend Jason Kelce, last year was the first edition of A Philly Christmas Special where we all were introduced to the musical sensation that also happens to be Eagles Starting Left Tackle Jordan Mailata. The Former Australian Rugby Player joined Eagles All-Pro Right Tackle Lane Johnson and others for a Christmas album full of fun and nostalgia.

The second edition of A Philly Christmas Special Produced by Jason Kelce, former Eagles Linebacker Conor Barwin, and Philadelphia Musician Charlie Hall is available now with proceeds from the sales going to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's efforts to ensure sick children will get presents during the Christmas holiday season. Also, just like the first edition of the Christmas album, money raised from album sales will benefit the Children's Crisis Treatment Center and their annual toy drive.
