This is an amazing CHRISTmas CD, it really shows Mandisa's vocal range, and puts you in the CHRISTmas spirit quickly. She has a wide variety of different christmas songs. I suggest this CD to any sucker for some amazing christmas music, it's a must have for the christmas season.

"What Christmas Means To me" 9.5/10- she shows amazing vocal range, and acually gives Stevie Wonder a run for his mone on that song

"Feliz Navidad"- 9.0/10- I love the spanish twist she has to it, and how it goes right in to "Joy to the World"

"ChristmasMakes Me Cry" 10/10 By far the best one on the album! It will make you cry the first time you here it!

"Christmas Bell Medley" 10/10- i love the way she covers all 3 songs, and they are acually better than the origanals!

"Silent Night" 8.5/10 It acually has a slow start but once it gets going, i's an amazing version of the song

"Angels We Have Heard On High"- 10/10- an amazing rendition of the original version

"Little Drummer Boy"- 10/10 ok here we go BY FAR the best rendition i have ever heard, and will probabbly ever here! I absolutely LOVE the marching band at the end!

"Christmas Day- 9.5/10 great song i love the duet between her and Michael W. Smith

"O Holy Night"- 9.0/10 I love the rendition of this song!

"Mary's Little Boy Child" 10/10- This is an amazing song with a great message!

"Children Go Where I Send Thee" 10/10 WOO HOO WAY TO GO MANDISA!!! She blew this song right out of the box, everything about this rendition is perfect!! Don't Settle for Natalie Merchant's version this is the one you want!

So as you can tell this is an amazing album please purchase it and help Mandisa's ministry!
