I was moved by the consciousness of spirituality that infuses but never overwhelms the production. I loved the fade to black following Clay's glorious rendition of "Mary Did You Know" and the moment of silent reverence it implied. The windows-within- windows concept along with the work in progress format of this DVD will never become boring because it is continually evolving in visually gorgeous, interesting and entertaining streams on so many levels. There is logic to the way each song lead to the other and I was impressed with the smooth and easy transitions in the overstructure.
I loved Yolanda Adams inspired gospel rendition of "O Holy Night". The brilliant Barry Manilow added style and class to the production with his timeless voice and charming manner. Quiana Parler did a wonderful job on her duet with Clay.
Clay provided an abundance of dazzling eye candy and childlike wonderment for kids of all ages with a toy train chugging along under the tree covered with myriad lights and glistening ornaments that were used at times as a glittering framework for the scene unfolding.
The set decoration was perfect, classy and inviting and the camera operator kept the production visually fascinating by attention to all the artistic details and visual treats that continued to unfold as christmas wrappings to reveal hidden treasures inside.Read more ›
Songs between Clay Aiken, Yolanda Adams, Meghan Mullaly and Barry Manilow were well thought out. I enjoyed it very much.
Clay Aiken's song "Mary Did You Know" is a perfect song for him. I'ts a haunting song and makes me very religious. I cry everytime I hear it because it reminds of my husband who passed away 2 years ago.
I look forward to a duet between Clay Aiken and Barry Manilow. I am sure they will be great together. This DVD is worth buying, you and your family can enjoy it for many years to come.
Following 'Idol' Clay fell victim of the trappings of his new celebrity status and became quickly exploited by his management team who allowed his talent to sadly become a vehicle for peddling inferior song material. Clay's financially successful albeit artistically disappointing debut album "Measure of a Man" was simply typically over-produced. Clay Aiken does not need to me mixed-down in the studio like other artists who use beat, moves, looks and marketing to distract attention away from lack of music abilities. Clay Aiken has a powerful voice that needs to be heard up front on a record and he will always need the right manager like Neil Sedaka to make sure he is correctly produced with the right songs and arrangements, That is what will keep Clay Aiken Fan's truly happy.
"Merry Christmas with Love" is one of the best new Christmas Albums I have heard in a long time. In an age of Hip-Hop, this album is a breath of air and hope in that talent comes through in the end. 'O Holy Night' takes you back to the time of Andy Williams Christmas show. It's all about the spirit, passion and message of Christmas. Clay brings such energy and lease of new life to many of the old favorites here on this album. In addition more modern songs like "Don't Save It All for Christmas Day" still bears the traditional feel. Once can not help but feel a lift when the songs builds to full supporting choir while Clay holds so effortlessly those incredibly high notes with so much passion and power. At the other end "Mary did you know" is a quieter emotionally lyrical song that Clay sings beautifully.Read more ›
