Back in November, Skype announced it was creating a new way to say ‘happy birthday’ on Facebook with its Say it with Skype Facebook app, which was later rolled out on its own website too.

It teamed up with the likes of Ash, Body Language, Bowling for Soup, Charlie Simpson, CSS and Scarlett Grey to begin with, and today it announced it has gotten a bunch of new artists on board just in time for Christmas – Alice Cooper, Autumn in Disguise, Boyz II Men, The Chakras, The Cuban Brothers and Scala & Kolacny Brothers.
