Christmas Music: Vanessa Williams “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

In full rotation in my house every Christmas season.

What I love about Vanessa’s recordings is she reveals, alongside stunning vocals, her rich and artful musicianship.

Her brilliant arranger/music director on her holiday albums, Rob Mathes, brings rich and rhythmic gospel flavor to these takes on “Do You Hear What I Hear” and “The Drummer Boy.”

If you don’t have Vanessa Williams’ holiday albums, you’re missing out. Love, love, love.
