Album Review

In 2000, vocal group Newsong released the holiday single "The Christmas Shoes." The song quickly climbed to the top of the charts, becoming to Newsong what "Butterfly Kisses" is to Bob Carlisle. Due to the single's overwhelming success, the five group members, Michael O'Brien, Stephen Reischl, Billy Goodwin, Matt Butler, and Eddie Carswell, decided to record a full-length holiday project, aptly titled The Christmas Shoes, which was released in 2001. The album is a combination of upbeat, holiday fun and inspirational pieces. In addition to the title song, the project includes a beautifully structured vocal arrangement of "Away in a Manger/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and a version of the classic cartoon song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch."

The Christmas Shoes

This is an outstanding song. I wonder who sings it. I heard it for the first time this week. I had just finished my makeup before leaving for work and wound up washing it off with my tears. I lost my mom 9 years ago and it still feels like yesterday. She was the type of mom like the one in the song. We didn't have much money so she always went without so that we could have a special Christmas. The little she could get, she gave to her children. This song reminds me so much of her.

Makes me cry every time!!! :(

The main song is Christmas Shoes, and this song makes me cry every single time. It shows the real message about Jesus, not the whole santa thing. Once people hear this song, I hope they cry too!!!
