Pop-Christian singer Tori Kelly’s fourth studio album comes with a holiday theme and her voice is just about perfect for every song.
With the familiar tunes, she falters a bit as she shows off the full extent of her voice using riffs that sound wonderful but aren’t the easiest to sing along to. “This Christmas” is one of the best as she also mashes up the *NSYNC hit “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” with it.
Her two original songs on the album – “25th” and “Gift That Keeps On Giving” – both have the ability to become modern Christmas classics with the former having a fantastic beat behind it that will immediately be stuck in your head. She also gives a beautiful rendition of the Charlie Brown song “Christmas Time Is Here,” which is often left off albums.
Final say: Santa would approve. ★★★★☆
