I remember buying Andy Williams’ first Christmas album [The Andy Williams Christmas Album] at a flea market. I love all the memories associated with it: the cover, the wonder it inspired in me, how it made me feel the magic of Christmas and how listening to it was like traveling back in time to the night Jesus was born. read more

Michael Sweet of Stryper

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. Nat’s voice and the arrangements always make me feel like it’s Christmas, even in Las Vegas in the middle of July. —Felicia Abraham read more


Julie Elias

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
