Idina Menzel's Holiday Wishes Will Get You in the Holiday Spirit #HolidayWishes #O2O #sponsored

I participated in the Idina Menzel Holiday Wishes album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year for many reasons:  the celebration of Jesus' birth, time with family and friends, and the look of joy on my children's faces when they open up their gifts.  We usually begin our celebration right after Thanksgiving by putting up the tree and turning up the Christmas music.  There's nothing like some beautiful Christmas music to get you in the holiday spirit!

I'm very excited about Idina Menzel's new Christmas album Holiday Wishes.  If you're not familiar with Idina Menzel, she's the voice behind the hit "Let It go" from Disney's Frozen {oh and a star of Wicked, Rent, Glee and If/Then}.   That song has probably been played a bazillion times in my house, and that's not an exaggeration.  I fell in love with her voice after hearing it, and couldn't wait to sample her take on some holiday hits!




About the Album:

Holiday Wishes, a Christmas album recorded by Tony Award-winning singer/actor Idina Menzel, is out now on Warner Bros. Records.

The album was produced by Grammy Award-winner Walter Afanasieff (Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey) and features such classic favorites as “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” as well as Joni Mitchell’s Christmas-themed “River,” one of Menzel’s favorites.

Another highlight is a duet with international superstar Michael BublĂ© on “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” An exclusive Target edition of Holiday Wishes features two bonus tracks, including “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”.

Idina Menzel:


Idina’s career has traversed stage, film, television, and music. She was most recently heard as Elsa in Disney’s global box-office smash Frozen, in which she sings the film’s Oscar-winning song “Let It Go.” After her performance of the multi-platinum song at the 86th annual Academy Awards, she made history as the first person with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.

Idina currently stars as Elizabeth in the original Broadway production of If/Then.





Holiday Wishes has a great selection of holiday songs.  I loved her version of "Silent Night" {one of my all-time favorite Christmas carols} and the duet with Michael Buble on "Baby It's Cold Outside" is playful and jazzy{you can't go wrong with some Michael Buble!}.  You'll want to grab a cup of hot cocoa and snuggle up with someone you love while you listen.

But my absolute favorite on this album is one that Idina co-wrote:  "December prayer."  Her beautiful voice and the lyrics actually made me cry and reach for the tissues.  It was simply breathtaking! Idina has unique quality to her voice and puts so much emotion into her work.  This song is definitely going on my top holiday song play list!

If you are an Idina Menzel fan, this is one holiday album you will want to buy for yourself and pass along to your friends!
