Posted November 09, 2023
By BPence,


Mac Powell was the long-time lead singer for four-time Grammy award winners Third Day, and has one of the best voices in music today. Since Third Day’s disbanding in 2018, he has enjoyed a solo career. With Third Day, he released Christmas Offerings in 2006. He returns with an enjoyable new five-song EP titled Christmas.  
Here are a few brief comments about each of the songs on the EP:
Christmas Time Again, My Friend – Powell wrote this song with his daughter and son-in-law. The mid-tempo feel-good song references many Christmas memories (Bing Crosby on the radio, Charlie Brown on my TV, etc. The song features horns, a guitar solo, and backing vocals.

When I was a child I thought that toys would make my Christmas better
Now that I’m older I realize it’s because we’re all together

I pray on Christmas
He’ll get me through another day
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – This jazz-flavored song was written by Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin. The song features guitar, horns, bass, and some excellent piano.

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Jesus Christ is born
The Savior of the world
Let all of Heaven and Earth rejoice

Living Proof – This song was written by Powell and Tony Wood. This song features piano, organ, guitar, drums, bass, and backing vocals.

Glory in the highest
Every promise
Made true
And there in a manger
Was our living proof
