Item description for Yolanda Adams Christmas by Yolanda Adams...

The queen of modern R&B-influenced gospel soul brings a typically updated approach to this, her first Christmas album. Although the singing is less intense and earth-shatteringly amazing than on last year's breakthrough, Mountain High... Valley Low--how intense can one be when singing "Little Drummer Boy"? Her take on "It Came upon a Midnight Clear" is so thick with slow-jam funk that it almost loses its way, but it never does, and is instead a highlight of this solid (although not superlative) disc. Unfortunately, this is mostly a set of secular shopping mall tunes. One notable exception is "Born on This Day," which drops a heavy choir funk vibe. And her take on "O Holy Night" is so truly transporting that it'll have you taking a cue from the song and falling down on your knees in thanks for the many blessings of the holiday season. --James Conde

More About Yolanda Adams

Yolanda Adams For Gospel legend Yolanda Adams, her stirring Elektra debut Mountain High…. Valley Low was an opportunity to bring both her inspirational vision and her wide range of influences to an audience hungry for spiritual fruit. Since her 1988 debut, the acclaimed and uplifting Just As I Am , Yolanda has been wowing gospel audiences all over the world. In 1999, four studio albums and one live album later (the Grammy nominated Yolanda…. Live In Washington ), the Houston , Texas native is ready to extend her magnificent reach without watering down the message. "I'm not one of those singers who wants to expand my audience at the expense of the people who already know my music," she says determinedly. "And I've grown both vocally and spiritually since my first album, through each phase of my career. So choosing Elektra was just another step of growth. Gospel music had stepped up and gathered a myriad of influences-jazz, hip-hop, R&B. I need to be in a place where my message can be heard by everyone. I understand my purpose. I understand what I was put here for. I take that on every day of my life."

It's precisely that kind of conviction that has caused critics to refer to Yolanda as one of gospel's "seminal" voices. It has also empowered her to venture out of gospel's more sanctimonious confinements, and hook up with some of pop's most formidable producers, such as Keith Thomas, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Yolanda stresses, however, that it was the process of "sharing" talents that made the unique collaborations such a great success. Thomas produced and wrote "The Things We Do."

"I had a chance to work with him," she says, "he's worked with so many great people, like Vanessa Williams and Wynonna Judd. It was awesome. He's the kind of producer who pulls stuff out of you that you didn't know you were capable of." Yolanda also had high praise for the duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who helm the ethereal "Open My Heart," "Wherever You Are," and the disc's feel-good closer, "Already Alright," all which they co-wrote with Yolanda. "Coming from the gospel world and being able to work with them was a dream come true," she says. "They provided leadership and gave me the leeway necessary to develop the songs. They wanted me to bring material to them so that I wouldn't lose connection, for non inspiration. Their input and approval really encouraged me as a writer."

Religious audiences have been validating Yolanda for well over a decade. She was employed as an elementary teacher in Houston when she first began to garner recognition for her stunning performances. "I taught second and third grades. I would go on the road during the weekends to sing. Pretty soon the demand started growing. I realized I might be able to make it my career."

The best Christmas CD I have ever purchased!  Dec 8, 2009
The singing and production and on this CD is flawless!!! I have enjoyed this CD every Christmas holiday since it's release back in 2000. This is my 2nd purchase; my previous copy mysteriously disappeared and my Christmas is just not complete without this cd. Yolanda is at her best on this project!!! Love every song from the begining to the end!!

Yolanda at Christmas  Jan 24, 2009
Each Christmas I buy music from a genre that is relatively new to me. This year it was Yolanda Adams, and I'm so glad! Delightful and inspiring!
WELL DONE!  Oct 9, 2007
Yolanda's first christmas project (the second one was released today - What A Wonderful Time) is very well crafted soft project. She does what she does best on this project. That is sing well and provide great variety of gospel music (pop/r&b/contemporary gospel/jazz/traditional gospel). Standout tracks are: HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS, BORN THIS DAY, CAROL OF BELLS/WHAT CHILD IS THIS MEDLEY, OH HOLY NIGHT, IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR!

Get it, you'll enjoy it. Great for family and party gatherings. Excellent to have around the house. It'll lift your spirit and bring you to a place of gladness.

Kudos Yolanda~
