His Gift

by: CeCe Winans

It may be a little too clean and predictable for some tastes, but CeCe Winans' His Gift is a charming holiday record, thanks to her rich voice and elegant phrasing. She brings life to old favorites like "Do You Hear What I Hear?," "O Holy Night," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," "Away in a Manger" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," and the newer songs, while not always particularly memorable, are pleasant and ingratiating. For fans of Winans, or contemporary gospel in general, His Gift is a very appealing Christmas record. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
