R&B SINGER GIVES HOLIDAY CLASSIC A SOUFUL FEELING
TOP NOTCH MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT
For decades, many singers have recorded Christmas singles and albums, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that Soul singer/songwriter Noel Gourdin would be jump on Santa's sled and record a holiday tune to get music in the holdiay spirit. His rendition of "First Noel" has a nice souful, jazzy Gospel feel, courtesy of the drums, horns, strings and electric guitar, which also adds elements of blues to the classic. Gourdin also blesses the tricks with his southern Gospel trained and flavored voice, which sounds rich and make listeners feel like they are at church on Christmas Eve and/or at a Christmas play on Broadway.
Gourdin did a wonderful good on this classic and I know that many fans will be playing this while opening their gifts and sipping on Egg Nog.
