For 11-year-old Heather Johnson, of Parkland, Christmas is always a special time.

Now, well on on musical journey, she's hoping to inspire others -- with "Ice."

"Ice" is an original Christmas song written entirely by Heather and her music coach Mike Soper.

The idea behind the son is quite simple.

"That's basically what Christmas is all about, being surrounded by happiness and love. and that's such a great thing to write a song about really, Heather said.

Heather and Soper put in long hours at his recording studio in Wellington.

The video was shot at her home in Parkland and Hoffman's Winter Wonderland in Greenacres.

She also recently sang at New York's famed Carnegie Hall.

And they are back in the studio working on her next track: "Broken."
