Editors’ Notes

The Grammy nominated R&B singer/songwriter gets her holiday spirit on with a truly warming Christmas album. Although this 12-song outing boasts five original songs, even standard carols like "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" and "Silent Night" sound brand new because they've been rearranged and (sometimes) reconstructed to make room for Ledisi's dynamic vocal range. She breaks the ice with "I'll Go," a gospel-tinged intro that at just over two minutes long bumps right into the festively contrasting, four-on-the-floor version of the traditional "Children Go Where I Send Thee." "Be There For Christmas" is an original number that pulls in classic soul instrumentation — a bouncing horn section, a Rhodes jazz piano, doo-wop backing singers, a guitar that sounds imported from ‘70s Jackson 5 records, and a buttery bass player with Carol Kaye- inspired licks. Retro blues bard Keb' Mo' cameos on a swinging, rootsy rendition of "Please Come Home For Christmas." It's easily the album's standout, and with Keb' Mo's vintage guitar tones and Ledisi wailing like a young P.P. Arnold, the chemistry birthed between the two luminaries here is astonishing.

Customer Reviews

Uh, WOW!!

This is a Christmas album??? This album is crazy!!!! Ledisi is singing her tail off!!! There's literally something for everyone. "Children Go" is bananas!!! "Give Love..." is sung so beautifully, little Michael Jackson is in a corner, arms folded just hatin' right now (LOL). "This Christmas..." (no not another tired Donnie H remake THANK GD) makes me tear up everytime I hear it. I love her version of "Wonderful World." It's so soulful and heartfelt. Man. Just start buying iTunes cards for everybody for Christmas (in Sept????) and MAKE SURE they buy this album. I'm gonna look like a fool blasting XMas music pre-Thanksgiving, but I won't care because IT'S THAT AMAZING!!!

Christmas in September by Ledisi

She has such amazing voice. She is a true artist and a cut above the rest. She is so humble. I love her voice. Please get this one for the holidays!

Ledisi is Fabulous!

She's really quite amazing and anyone with this album will be so blessed this Holiday Season. Enjoy "Give Love...Day" and "This Christmas". Those are my favorites. ;) Keep 'em coming, Ledisi and much success in the future.
