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!

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.

This is an understated, beautiful Christmas album. I'm not a big Vanessa Williams fan and had none of her secular music until I bought this CD some years ago. I'm not sure what the reviewers who gave it less than four stars were hoping for and didn't get but this is a very soothing and elegantly done collection of songs. Especially noteworthy is "Do You Hear What I Hear/Drummer Boy" arrangement. Her rendition is alone worth the cost of the CD.
A knowledgeable buyer--and one who loves and knows Christmas music--will also pick up her Silver and Gold CD. As far as I'm concerned it has the best rendition of Little Drummer Boy I've heard--ever.

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.

Vanessa Williams has release a classic Christmas Album I grew up with this album and when I got a chance to buy it I didn't think twice about it. I love every song on this album and it reminds me of my younger days when I first heard this album. If you don't have this classic album in your holiday collection you should because it will become a classic for you every Christmas season.

Vanessa Williams has a beautiful voice, and the arrangements put together on this CD are terrific. Upbeat and a little jazzy, the standard Christmas tunes are nicely refreshed. A couple of very beautiful songs, particularly "I Wonder as I Wander", allow for a quiet contemplative mood. Love her duet with Bobby Caldwell on "Baby, It's Cold Outside" - my favorite version of this tune. This CD along with Christmas albums by Harry Connick Jr. and Manhattan Transfer make a great shuffle. Add the old Andy Williams and Carpenters Christmas albums into the mix, and you have a nice retro flair.

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.

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.
