All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Christina Perri's second EP is a far cry from 2010's Ocean Way Sessions, which featured a live rendition of her breakthrough, breakup calling card "Jar of Hearts" -- Perri, a former café waitress with a golden voice, found her way into the limelight a when "Jar of Hearts" spilled over after a performance on an episode of So You Think You Can Dance.

    This is such a lovely CD I just wish it were longer! Christina

    This is such a lovely CD I just wish it were longer! Christina Perri's rendition of Karen Carpenter's Merry Christmas Darling is absolutely delightful. She has such a beguiling voice, I highly recommend adding this to your Christmas music collection.
