Your Love is a short debut album from Christina Youngs, winner of a recording contract through a Don Ho-sponsored singing contest. Aside from her usual jobs of opera singing and singing backup for Don Ho, Youngs developed a nice sound on her own. The sound is generally basic adult contemporary Hawaiian. There are religious themes built into the love song, parallel vocal lines, and a relatively sparse acoustic guitar and percussion backing. Most notably though, the vocals make use of a strong yet restrained voice from Youngs. A very sweet sound is the result in general. Along with the title track is a Hawaiian-language rendition of "Silent Night" with some tender vocals on the part of Youngs and her sister. Quite short, even for a debut EP, but the album shows some promise for a new artist on the contemporary Hawaiian scene.
