    "TIMELESS" Is all one can say about FIRST CHRISTMAS

    This CD is very uplifting! "GIVE ME A STAR" is my favorite selection on this CD. Filled with hope and joy. It is perfect for the Christmas season but is sure to bring a smile to anyone's heart at any time of the year!

    I Cannot Find Enough Copies of This Album for Gifts

    I love this album. It's traditional, contemporary, sweet, and absolutely my favorite Christmas album. Every year I buy as many copies as I can find to give as gifts, but I'm always looking for more. Now I don't even have a copy for myself. The classics are performed beautifully. The Wynans's interpretations are memorable, their harmony as sweet as they are. The ''new'' songs -- and a thoughtful cover of the 60's hit ''Ooh, Ooh, Child'' -- are strong enough to stand on their own, but work nicely with the standards. Buy this album. Buy several. Enjoy. Give.
