What do you think of when you think of Christmas? There are the warm, cinnamon scented candles wafting through the air, the sweetness of the hot cocoa, cakes and pies baking in the oven and twinkling lights coming from the Christmas tree, complete with packages wrapped in shiny paper. What are we forgetting in this scene? Christmas songs, of course! If you are looking for something that combines the holiday classics you know by heart with a spin of originality, you should check out Idina Menzel's new album, Holiday Wishes.
You may know Menzel from the immensely popular movie Frozen, but she has many other credits including a number of Broadway shows. What Menzel does for Christmas music is provide that voice we all know and love to help celebrate holiday classics in a fun, charming way. There are the songs that everyone knows, such as "Do You Hear What I Here?" and "Silent Night," but there are also some other, maybe surprising tracks, such as "River." She also piars up with Michael Buble to sing "Baby It's Cold Outside" with all of the charm that has graced so many other duos with this tune.
If you want a new way to celebrate your holiday traditions, Holiday Wishes is something that you will want to check out. You can purchase it through iTunes and Amazon.
