My favorite Christmas album is Nat King Cole’s The Christmas Song. For me, it highlights the perfect Christmas spirit, and it also has the most anointed version of “O Holy Night” that I’ve ever heard.

I think Mariah Carey has one of the most impressive voices of all time. Even though her album Merry Christmas came out in 1994 (20 years ago!), it’s still my favorite. “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is one of the most joyful, upbeat Christmas tunes I know of. Range-wise, her version of “O Holy Night” is untouchable. I love that she includes some songs about Jesus, even though she’s a pop artist with a secular audience. “Jesus Born on This Day” is so heavenly. You can have your lights, decorations, cookies ... but for me, as far as creating a Christmas atmosphere, it’s all about this album! —Felicia Abraham read more
