“Winter Moon” by Mindy Gledhill

Glad Christmas Tidings feat. David Archuleta

David Archuleta was the guest vocalist who performed with “America’s Choir” The Mormon Tabernacle Choir at their Christmas concert last year.  The album and DVD/Blue Ray has now been released.  By all accounts this is a tremendous performance.

One we missed: ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ by She & Him

Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas to You TV Special

We are hoping she sticks to the classics and the more Christmasy tunes (the ones focused on Christ) rather than the greedy dribble that is the new “Oh Santa!”
