Tony-award winning actress Kristin Chenoweth brings cheer and her impressive range of vocals to holiday tunes.
Chenoweth does a fine job of mixing classic songs with new ones. She opens the album with “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and you can hear her acting the song to perfection. Her voice has a sweetness in it that will make you feel longing. She also takes “The Lord’s Prayer” and sets it to music creating a new version of the traditional final prayer.
She keeps the music upbeat and no song is better than the playfully fun mash-up duet of “Sleigh Ride” and “Marshmallow World” with John Pizzarelli. The two go back and forth with the songs and you can picture them out in the snow together.
Final say: An easy way to put you in the holiday spirit. ★★★★☆
