After her forays into R&B and pop flavors on albums like 1998's Grammy winner Mountain High Valley Low, a Christmas album was the next logical step for gospel singer Yolanda Adams. Where better than a Christmas album to explore new textures within classic sacred songs? Traditional Christmas favorites include "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "O Come All Ye Faithful," and "Silent Night"; interpreted with Adams' signature rich, emotive voice and passionate delivery, they gain a new depth. She also tackles a few pop classics, including "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song."
