Holiday Wishes


Now that Thanksgiving is over, I'm officially in the Christmas spirit! This time of year is so magical. Listening to Christmas music definitely adds to the magic of the holiday season!

I recently had the chance to review Idina Menzel's new album through One2One Network.  Idina Menzel won the hearts of many after she was the voice of Elsa from the popular movie Frozen.  I, however, was a fan of Idina Menzel long before "Let It Go" became a huge hit!  

I saw Idina Menzel in Rent years ago, and I was thrilled when she was on Glee.  When my daughters fell in love with Frozen and began listening to "Let It Go" over and over and over again, I was just thankful someone I loved was singing it!

I was so excited when I was offered the opportunity to review Holiday Wishes!  Holiday music and Idina Menzel?  It was already a winner before I even listened to it!

This album did not disappoint!

The album includes many holiday favorites!  The songs on the album are "Do You Hear What I Hear," "The Christmas Song," "Baby It's Cold Outside" (Duet with Michael Buble), "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "All I Want For Christmas," "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?," "December Prayer," "When You Wish Upon A Star," "Silent Night," "River," "Holly Jolly Christmas," and "White Christmas."

My personal favorite is "Do You Hear What I Hear."  It's a beautiful rendition of the hit Christmas song. Idina Menzel's voice is flawless, so it's fitting that it's the first song on the album. It draws you in and makes you want to hear more!

I  really liked "Baby It's Cold Outside," which is a duet with Michael Buble.  It's fun and playful, and the vocals are smooth! Idina Menzel and Michael Buble are a perfect match for this song!

Another favorite is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas."  Idina Menzel doesn't stray from the melody, and instead, chooses to showcase her beautiful voice.

My entire family, including my husband, enjoyed Holiday Wishes! My 3 year old, who is a Frozen fanatic, immediately recognized "Elsa's" voice.  She now requests to hear the "Elsa Christmas Songs" and said she loves every song.  I happily oblige, because I do, too!

If you love Idina Menzel as much as I do, you can find her on her website, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube

From the first song to the last, this album will captivate you! Holiday Wishes by Idina Menzel can be purchased on iTunes and Amazon. Trust me, it's worth it!
