    Locally, radio stations are starting to play Christmas music. Its a little early for me usually, but I heard this rendetion of Silent Night I have never heard, and was blown away. I've always been a big fan of hers:

    Sarah has a marvelous voice. She hasn't done much lately; however, her pasts works have always impressed me with her sultry, soulful voice that seems to occupy even the very shallowest of lyrics and turn them into profound messages.

    I have a personal preference for Diana Krall's renditions.

    Radio stations began to play Christmas-themed music the day after Thanksgiving here in Southern California.:smile:

    Yes, she has a very beautiful voice and I'm a fan of her music. Plus, she's from Vancouver :smile:

    I love that version of Silent Night, and currently resides on my iTunes Christmas Playlist.

    I guess you won't be too happy in the Philippines - you'll see Christmas decors and hear Christmas songs as early as September 1. :biggrin: It's not really the commercial Christmas creep though -- it's more like the people eager to be in the holiday spirit early.

    I agree, her Christmas album is really great.

    In another genre, if anyone wants something a little "different" for holiday tunes you really need to check out Where Will You Be Christmas Day [amazon link]. It's a collection of rare recordings from the 1910s-50s, many genres like blues, soul, gospel, mountain music, etc. It's definitely quirky, a lot of fun, and (to me) feels a lot more "authentic" than the mall-muzak Christmas tunes you hear everywhere.
