Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Harmony-happy vocal group NewSong scored a holiday hit with last year's weepy "The Christmas Shoes." That single is now the centerpiece of this all-holiday collection. The five-man group tackles such holiday chestnuts as "Comfort and Joy," and "Rockin' Around the Chirstmas Tree," but we also have some modern classics , "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," and "Christmas Time Is Here" among them. That, plus a few original tunes, make this a nice holiday album for those who like their Christmas music full of contemporary pop polish.

In 2000, vocal group Newsong released the holiday single "The Christmas Shoes." The song quickly climbed to the top of the charts, becoming to Newsong what "Butterfly Kisses" is to Bob Carlisle. Due to the single's overwhelming success, the five group members, Michael O'Brien, Stephen Reischl, Billy Goodwin, Matt Butler, and Eddie Carswell, decided to record a full-length holiday project, aptly titled The Christmas Shoes, which was released in 2001. The album is a combination of upbeat, holiday fun and inspirational pieces. In addition to the title song, the project includes a beautifully structured vocal arrangement of "Away in a Manger/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and a version of the classic cartoon song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch."
