I am aware that it is November but we’ve already hit single digit weather and had to shovel snow. When I’m all bundled up, I can’t help but get a little pick me up when I here some jingle bells. Getting to hear Idina Menzel’s new album Holiday Wishes was a perfect little surprise this week. Idina Menzel’s voice is so smooth and pleasant and the sings chosen fit her perfectly. I am one of those people that actually enjoys holiday music in general so it’s nice to be able to add another great collection of songs to the mix.
My two personal favorites were the Baby It’s Cold Outside with Michael Bublé (the video is really cute, too) and When You Wish Upon a Star. I may be a little bias since my husband and I had our first dance to Michael Bublé and well, Frozen. I love that she covered the quintessential Disney song. My daughter enjoyed the songs, too, especially when she realized “Elsa” was singing them.
Enjoy your turkey and football next week, but then, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
About Idina Menzel and Holiday Wishes
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 Bublé 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’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.
