Kelly Clarkson’s Wrapped in Red Christmas album is out on October 29.
You’re definitely going to want to listen to this. And then RUN RUN RUN to your record store (or surf over to iTunes!) on the 29th to buy it. This is a really wonderful holiday collection.
Kelly does it all. Rock, blues, country and standards–she navigates genres with such ease. It’s a shame the business insists on pigeonholing recording artists, because the original flavah American Idol can truly sing ANYTHING.
She nails standards like “White Christmas” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Love the bluesy “Run Run Rudolph” and “Blue Christmas.” “Winter Dream” is romantic fun. Kelly takes on Broadway, beautifully, with “Favorite Things.” And the Reba/Trisha/Kelly triumvirate perform a simple and gorgeous “Silent Night.” But I absolutely ADORE her cover of Imogene Heap’s “Just for Now.”
A truly eclectic collection of great performances. That’s Wrapped in Red.
