My Take on the CD
I have been a big fan of Francesca Battistelli for some time but I have not heard her sing Christmas Music before. Her smooth voice makes me smile and through this CD I felt the same. What I loved about the album was that there was great mix of old favorites, but also, some amazing new Christmas songs that were catchy and made me and my family all sit wrapped in the Christmas spirit that this artist provides her listeners. I was very pleased with the CD and know that if you are already her fan you will love it, and if this is your first time, hang on, as you will definitely be coming back!
