I know it is November 10, and I haven’t posted so far this month, but I hope you all enjoyed 31 Days of Randomness– I certainly did! I hope your November is going well, and I’m praying you all have a wonderful holiday season!
As you have probably noticed, I love books, and I enjoy writing about books. But today’s review actually isn’t a book, it is music!
I was very excited to have the opportunity to review an album of Christmas music created with children in mind, though I wasn’t exactly sure how I would go about reviewing it!
I am confident that every child (and adult) will find something to love about His Kids United Christmas. With a mix of traditional carols and new songs, and with various musical styles represented, ranging from pop and jazz to hip hop, His Kids United Christmas was overall quite enjoyable, even for this twenty-something.
While created with children in mind (and with children vocalists), most of the songs didn’t immediately come across as specifically for children, but more as an album ideal for families. However, there were two songs that I personally found a bit annoying, Jingle Bell Rock and Jingle Bells, though perhaps it was just personal preference. I also feel the album would have been stronger without I Hope This Gets To You (which I enjoyed), as it sounded more like a love song than a Christmas song for an album geared towards children.
Overall, I believe children will enjoy His Kids United Christmas, and would give the album a “B”. You can get a free download of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing here.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free download of the album through Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 .
