Lifetime Intimate Portraits: Christmas Belles continues the cable network's series of albums with a collection of holiday classics performed by '50s and '60s jazz and pop divas. Ella Fitzgerald's "Sleigh Ride," Lena Horne's "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!," Peggy Lee's "Christmas Carousel," and Doris Day's "Silver Bells" are among the compilation's highlights; tracks by Sarah Vaughan, Pearl Bailey, Rosemary Clooney, and Eartha Kitt round out this elegant Christmas portrait.
