Christmastime is here! If you’re like me, you’ve been spinning those Christmas tunes that you grew up with and even some more modern offerings that you’ve added into the rotation in recent years. Well, one worth considering is an album that flew pretty low under the radar last year. Not only did it not release to all music stores, but you could only buy it digitally… or on CD from musichristian.com. Sadly, this is a record that deserves full distribution.
In addition to her incredible vocals, Ayiesha Woods has channeled some R&B, motown and just plain ole soul into her Christmas project, Christmas Like This. It’s a pretty solid collection of holiday covers, and her renditions of “Rudolph…” and “Merry Christmas Baby” are especially fun.
