    Could be traditional or contemporary, religious or secular. There are probably too many to be comprehensive, but I’m partial to:

    Shawn Colvin’s recording of “Little Road to Bethlehem” (Warm and hopeful and tenderly sung and arranged)

    Sarah McLachlan’s “First Noel/Mary Mary” medley (Unexpected, dramatic, creatively exciting and not just a down the middle interpretation)

    Lots more, but those are the first two that come to mind.

    The following three will always be at the top of my list.

    “Fall Softly Snow”-Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius

    “What Do You See?”-Sonya Isaacs

    “Mary, Its Christmas”-Toby Keith

    I love how each song is done and what each of them are about.

    God bless you and Helen and Sonya and Toby always!!!

    Holly

    P.S. And may Jim Ed be with the Lord.

    Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” Gorgeously performed by Love, with pitch-perfect lyrics from Elle Greenwich and Jeff Barry and a typically gorgeous production by Phil Spector.

    For me, there are a lot of Christmas songs that I enjoy, however, I have to go with “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. When I think of Christmas, I always think of that song. It is such a festive song that puts a smile on your face and puts you in the holiday mood. The thing I appreciate most about this song is that it is an original song that she wrote, it is the standard when it comes to Christmas music.

    Honorable Mentions:
    “Miss You Most (At Christmas Time)” another original song that Mariah wrote, the way her vocals come through, the emotions, very sentimental

    Furthermore her rendition of “O Holy Night”, the arrangement, her vocals are incredible on it and when I hear her version, I get emotions over it, it is that powerful.

    “This Christmas” by Donny Hathaway, very soulful, a sentimental feel

    “Sleigh Ride” by TLC from the Home Alone 2 soundtrack, I like the rap and singing arrangement and the production made the holiday classic more modern.

    “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee, very cheerful and another Christmas song that makes the holiday more festive.

    “This Christmas” by Donny Hathaway is my favorite Christmas song of all time. It’s such a soulful, timeless staple, and as far as R&B Christmas records are concerned (my favorite genre), this one takes the cake.

    “Let It Snow” by Boyz II Men & Brian McKnight is a close second.

    The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole – This song screams Christmas and his smooth voice and the music puts you in the Christmas mood.

    Do You Hear What I Hear by Whitney Houston – This is the best version of this song and I wish that Whitney had released a Christmas cd at this time in 1987.

    This Christmas by Donny Hathaway – This is a very soulful song and no one should be allowed to touch this song

    All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey – This song also puts you in a festive mood when you hear the first few bars.

    Tamar Braxton, “Away In a Manger / Little Drummer Boy” – opens with a great acapella version of “Away In a Manger” which leads into her version of “Little Drummer Boy” which is my favourite Christmas track and one of my favourite Tamar tracks in general. It’s so soulful and she sounds incredible.

    Mariah Carey, “All I Want For Christmas” – a classic, how can anyone not like it?

    The Braxtons, “Last Christmas” – I love the melody of any version of this track but it sounds extra great in an R&B track. They’re harmonies are second-to-none too.
