I’ve been a fan of Mary J Blige for years, let’s just say her CDs were in my collection during my music formative years. A lot have since made it to my ipod and go on the road with me.
The weather is starting to get colder, actually we’ve seen snow in Michigan this week. I even experienced sleet yesterday while working on my car. So it’s not too early for Christmas music right? Honestly, it’s never too early!
“A Mary Christmas: is a beautiful collection of 12 Christmas songs. There are your classics like “Little Drummer Boy” and “My Favorite Things,” as well other favorites like “Mary Did You Know” and “When You Wish Upon a Star”. You will also find new favorites in the collection. All of the songs are soulfully sung by Mary J Blige. Some of the songs do feature accompaniment by Marc Anthony, Barbra Streisand, Chris Botti, The Clark Sisters and Jessie J.
Overall the collection is one that you will find yourself singing along with. Some songs are very traditional, and others you can feel more of Mary J Blige’s influence on the beat and tone of the song. It’s a wonderful collection that is beautifully put together. I personally enjoyed it and especially the songs done in French. while I don’t speak the language they are exquisite and well done and help put you in the holiday mood.
Mary J Blige’s “A Mary Christmas” is now available online. You can find all of the links below!
