Sacred and Soulful!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own many Christmas CD's and this is definitely my favorite. Vanessa injects her soulful spirit into each and every song, without taking away from the tradition and sacredness of the music. So much holiday music is the same, yet this R&B treatment of some of the classics is unique, upbeat, and inspiring. She also includes 3 new compositions from songwriter Rob Mathes. Through all my years of growing up, I don't ever remember paying attention to the words of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" or "Angels We Have Heard on High" the way I do when my children and I are jamming along with Vanessa. It is obvious that her intention was to make an impact...and she does. On the lighter side, her duet with Bobby Caldwell on "Baby It's Cold Outside" is smooth, sweet, and jazzy. If you like to be uplifted by music, this CD is a must-have for Christmas!"
Excellent Christmas Album

"Vanessa Williams works magic on some classic Christmas music. Her restraint and her mature delivery are a blessing in this time of overhyped, over-the-top screaming divas. This album is perfect for tree-trimming or after Christmas dinner lounging. I'd venture to say it's my favorite of all my Christmas music cds from the past 10 years."
One of the best Christmas CD's ever!

"Every year I buy Christmas music. I bought Star Bright when it was first released and have joyfully played it every year for the season.Vanessa's CD contains the same songs that everyone else's holiday CDs contain. But, the arrangements are so original that they sound completely different. This wasn't just thrown together--it is splendidly crafted. The light gospel touches are perfect, and her ballads are sweet without being annoyingly so. Vanessa's creation is the perfect background to a wondrous season."
