Every year numerous Christian ministry artists seem to momentarily abandon all aesthetic and theological reason and record one or more utterly dire Christmas songs. This year I've still got to listen to Jesus Culture's Kim Walker-Smith singing "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer" but before that dubious pleasure I've got this EP from the Nashville teen popsters 1 Girl Nation. It starts with a new song "Joy" which has an attractive, catchy pop sound but a lyric that, rather than tackling biblical joy settles for banal couplets about Christmas trees and Santa trivia and no mention of the incarnation. Much better are the teen pop treatments of "Angels We Have Heard On High" and "Go Tell It On The Mountain". Musically though the most interesting is "A Very A Capella Christmas Mashup" where the girls show off their harmonies in a medley which takes in everything from "Jingle Bells" to "Come All You Faithful" and even a bit of rapping. Overall, not a brilliant EP. But, when it comes to Christmas projects I've heard worse. much worse.

Product Description
Following on from the success of 1 Girl Nation’s début self-titled album, this EP makes the perfect Christmas gift for girls.

Featuring fresh renditions of timeless Christmas classics together with the new 1 Girl Nation original song Joy, and a cover of the Disney Frozen song Let it Go, this EP is a great way to put the whole family in the Christmas spirit.

After a whirlwind year of touring that had the girls sharing their stories and hits across America, they’re thrilled to share these new Christmas songs with their fans.
