Synopsis

Amazon.com
From the first family of gospel comes siblings BeBe and CeCe Winans's First Christmas, recorded in 1993. Slightly dated by a heavy use of synthesizer and the squeaky-slick production prominent in popular gospel and R&B of the late '80s and early '90s, First Christmas is nevertheless right on time in its joyful celebration of the season. Newly arranged versions of classics like Irving Berlin's "White Christmas," Handel's "Joy to the World," and "For Unto Us (A Child Is Born)" cozy in with originals "Give Me a Star," "I Love You," and "Just Because." "The First Noel," a well-loved public-domain traditional, begins with a beautifully understated string arrangement. The album's finest moment is S. Vincent's "Ooh Child"; aurally pleasing and emotionally moving, Mom and Pop Winans, both of whom sing like angels, take on lead vocal duty, backed and supported by their gifted children. It's all about family here, and the more the merrier. --Paige La Grone

"I really enjoyed this Christmas CD during the holidays. I had it on cassette but w/the CD I was able to listen to it in my car as I drove around doing my shopping!"
