Idina Menzel Will Get You in the Holiday Spirit with her "Holiday Wishes" CD #HolidayWishes #O2O (CD Review)

Disclosure:  This was a One2One Network Project in which I was able to download a digital CD to enjoy, and help facilitate my review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

It’s time to let it go and “Let It Snow”!

Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa in the mega-hit Frozen and star of WickedRentGlee andIf/Then , has a new album called Holiday Wishes! It’s 12 tracks of holiday hits, including guest performances by Kenny G and Michael BublĂ©.

One of my favorite things of the season is listening to holiday music.  As soon as the Halloween decorations are put away, I pull out my collection of Christmas CDs to start listening to.  And, whenever I find time to bake in the kitchen, or we are taking the girls for a car ride to check out holiday lights, I make a point to have holiday CDs playing, as this music really gets you in the holiday spirit.

I now have a new favorite holiday CD thanks to the release of Idina Menzel's "Holiday Wishes" CD, which arrived in stores in mid October.  Recently, I was sent a digital download of her CD and quickly headed to Amazon to purchase the CD to bring along in the car.  All twelve holiday songs that make up this new CD are winners and ones you will want to play over and over again.

When it comes to Christmas songs, I love classics like "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "Silent Night".  And, when you pair these popular holidays with the vocals of Idina Menzel, it is pure magic. She sings her heart out and really makes these songs take on a life of their own, and sound like you are listening to them for the first time.  Idina is an amazing singer, and her new holiday CD will definitely get you in the holiday spirit.  

Fans of Frozen, both old and young, with fall in love with this CD, which will become a staple at the holidays for years to come.  I ended up picking up additional CDs so that I can include with gifts I am giving family and friends this year.  So many people who have visited since Thanksgiving and have heard Idina's music, run out and purchase a copy of her "Holiday Wishes" CD as they too fall in love with the songs and how Idina makes them her own.  I know that once you hear Idina singing, you'll want to own this holiday CD, too!

More about "Holiday Wishes":
