After hearing Kristin sing on the Care Bears float at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, I added her CD to my wish list. Her voice is amazing and having her holiday music will bring years of enjoyment in our home each Christmas.

Kristin Chenoweth ( of whom I am a devoted fan) has an extremely versitile voice that can both be powerful and strong, and quiet and breathy. her four-octave range is stunning, and she is incredibly talented. I promise, even if this is your first time purchasing the work o kristin's, you will not be dissappointed. I have a feeling this album will become a family holiday favorite.

This album came out last year but I am just getting around to it. This is a fun collection of Christmas tunes for a lady with a very unique and fun voice. Pretty much every song is fun and 'holiday-ish' and a great addition to any Christmas album collection. And as to BN's "Packaging" point : Kristin C under the mistletoe - yeah, that works!!

My husband and I fell in love with this singer-actress on the fun and witty show "Pushing Daisies" wherein Kristen got to sing in some of the episodes. I was impressed with her voice and that's what pushed me to seek out her albums. The mix of religious and traditional songs on this Christmas album are wonderful taking you to ones you sing in church, to those you sing when caroling, to ones you just love to sing! Her broadway talent is apparent in many of the songs. I truly belive you'll enjoy her interpretations of the songs she chose for this album. I also purchased her "As I Am" album and wasn't disappointed there either. I'm looking forward to adding more of her CD's to our collection!
