I received a copy of the Idina Menzel holiday album “Holiday Wishes” as a member of One2One Network. As always, my views and opinions are my own.
I'm a succor for a good Christmas album. As soon as Thanksgiving is over, that's it. My Pandora, my Songza, the CDs in my car, Itunes, you name it I've got it. That also includes an actual Bing Crosby Christmas recond....I'm serious about my Christmas music people.
It is full of your classic Christmas songs, including a duet with Michael Buble. Hello people, swoon! Sign me up for whatever album he is singing on. While Idina's voice is definitely a Broadway type voice (clearly that is where she is most at home), and not a classic, more pop-sounding voice the album is still good. I'm not sure that everyone would notice or care about something like that. But its like watching classic Broadway actors in on-screen movies. Its just different. For your little ones that love Frozen, this might be fun for them. "Hey, its Elsa and she's singing Christmas music!
- Do You Hear What I Hear
- The Christmas Song
- Baby It’s Cold Outside (Duet with Michael Bublé)
- Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
- All I Want For Christmas
- What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?
- December Prayer
- When You Wish Upon A Star
- Silent Night
- Holly Jolly Christmas
- White Christmas
It is definitely an album to add to your Christmas Music collection. Very rarely does one come out that adds something new or different to the season. Frequently albums are just the same old songs being sung in the same old way. Idina adds something a little fresh and new; and while her voice might not be everyone's favorite and might be a little too "Broadwayish (I swear that's a thing", it is sure to add a little holiday cheer to your day.
