Christmas [edit]
by Jaci Velasquez | Genre: Other | Release Date: September 18, 2001

It should come as no surprise that Jaci Velasquez opted for a more traditional, classic approach to this holiday seasonal release. After all, she exudes the strength and emotion in her vocals that are reminiscent of some of the Big Band era's greatest female singers. Interestingly enough, the orchestra backing on Christmas was recorded live in Ireland, giving Velasquez the framework she needs to build her melodic magic. Whether it's the dreamy "I'll Be Home for Christmas" or the warm and comfy "The Christmas Song," Velasquez is gifted with a certain timeless quality when she sings. There's also a cool and atmospheric rendering of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel." Velasquez also features three new compositions here, including the beautiful "The Angel Song."

A Good Effort | Posted July 06, 2012
 This is actually a good Christmas album...a very Amy Grant feel to it and sure to put you in the holiday mood. While Jaci may have needed to tone down some of her diva-like booming vocals on some tracks, it is an enjoyable release. "It Wouldn't be Christmas" is beautiful, as is "The First Noel" and "I'll be Home for Christmas." "The Chipmunk Christmas Song" and "Feliz Navidad" are a lot of fun.

Great Christmas Effort! | Posted December 05, 2008
This is a great Christmas effort! I'm not a huge fan of Jaci's music, but she really does have talent! I really liked her original song "The Angel Song", the upbeat "Let It Snow!" and the hilarious "Chipmunk Song". Overall, it's a nice festive album to play during the season of Christmas!
