New Christmas Music

Updated on December 3, 2010


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Next time you walk into Wal*Mart, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot or any of the other big boxes, or Frank's corner store or even the Heritage Diner, listen. Chances are you'll hear Christmas music. Now that Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday is behind us people can really focus on Christmas.

Christmas trees are getting rides on cars all over the place and there's only a few weeks left to shop. Some people got started early and are done. Others have just a few items left to buy and some haven't started. Have you?

Not only is music a great backdrop for shopping, parties, and quiet evenings at home, CD's make great gifts.

Not just for the money.

It would be easy to jump to the conclusion that someone who openly admits to being "non-Christian" would sell an album as a marketing gimmick to take advantage of the season.  Lot's on non-Christians have in fact offered Christmas music for sale over the years, Barbara Streisand for one.

In this case, Annie Lennox has a long history of activism on behalf of children who don't have many of the opportunities that kids do in the West.  The Annie Lennox Foundation will receive ALL of the royalties from the sale of this album and much of it will go to benefit children in Africa.  During the production of this CD, she went to Cape Town and recorded the African Children's Choir and their voices are heard on several of the selections in Christmas Cornucopia.

So open up your wallets -- and once the moths fly out, get a copy of this CD so you can open you ears to some interesting Christmas sounds.

      My favorite new Christmas album is a Christian singer new to the Gospel music scene but upbeat and a tremendous voice, Chris Tomlin and his CD Glory in the Highest. I have it on my last hub

      'Tis true..even old n rock stars have Christmas albums out...seems every style of music has to have one in their stable.

      I think many non-Christians still identify with Christmas, so I don't know if it is always cynical that they might sing Christmas songs.
