5.0 out of 5 stars Sacred and Soulful! December 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I own many Christmas CD's and this is definitely my favorite. Vanessa injects her soulful spirit into each and every song, without taking away from the tradition and sacredness of the music. So much holiday music is the same, yet this R&B treatment of some of the classics is unique, upbeat, and inspiring. She also includes 3 new compositions from songwriter Rob Mathes.
Through all my years of growing up, I don't ever remember paying attention to the words of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" or "Angels We Have Heard on High" the way I do when my children and I are jamming along with Vanessa. It is obvious that her intention was to make an impact...and she does.
On the lighter side, her duet with Bobby Caldwell on "Baby It's Cold Outside" is smooth, sweet, and jazzy.
If you like to be uplifted by music, this CD is a must-have for Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Christmas CD's ever! December 20, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Every year I buy Christmas music. I bought Star Bright when it was first released and have joyfully played it every year for the season.
Vanessa's CD contains the same songs that everyone else's holiday CDs contain. But, the arrangements are so original that they sound completely different. This wasn't just thrown together--it is splendidly crafted. The light gospel touches are perfect, and her ballads are sweet without being annoyingly so. Vanessa's creation is the perfect background to a wondrous season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Christmas Album November 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Vanessa Williams works magic on some classic Christmas music. Her restraint and her mature delivery are a blessing in this time of overhyped, over-the-top screaming divas. This album is perfect for tree-trimming or after Christmas dinner lounging. I'd venture to say it's my favorite of all my Christmas music cds from the past 10 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new holiday tradition. November 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Each year as my family and I drag our decorations out of the attack and start to decorate the house, we load the CD player with our favorite holiday tunes, and Vanessa Williams' "Star Bright" is always among them, and it is always the first one I put in the car too.
There is no song on this CD that you have not heard before, but I'd be willing to wager that you haven't heard them in quite this way before. Vanessa brings a new, fresh, even fun approach to these holiday standards. From the jazzy "What Child is This" to the wonderfully light "Baby It's Cold Outside" you'll soon be caught up in the spirit of Christmas. My personal favorite is "Angels We Have Heard On High". Every time I hear it I can't help but smile and sing along. If you're looking for something new to add to your holiday collection then you have got to get this CD. I have no problem giving it the highest rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Christmas CDs... January 4, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely a Christmas CD the whole family can enjoy during the holiday season. Listening to _What_Child_Is_This_ takes me back to when I would hear this song during Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve as a child. All songs are updated, jazzy versions of the originals, so it feels like you are listening to new songs, rather than hearing what is sung in church during the holiday season.
All in all, a good Christmas CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! Vanessa sings with such emotion! October 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I felt as if I could see her performing her music even though I was listening to a CD. I especially liked Gracious Good Shepherd. I have been playing the CD at work for weeks now and may continue througout the year. This is a Christmas CD that isn't for one season only.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Said the Night Wind to the Little Lamb' October 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
'Do you hear what I hear?'

Star Bright is another one of my favorite Christmas albums. All the songs are good, beautifully arranged. "Do You Hear What I Hear?" still moves me to tears. Recommended!!!
