Everyone's tip for the Christian retail best seller of the year, this not only features the best selling bishop and his Potter's House Mass Choir but a bevy of 'A' list guests including Aretha Franklin, Patty LaBelle, Mary Mary and Smokie Norful. Between them they do some pretty soulful things to carols like "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Joy To The World" while the good bishop gives us "Christmas Story" in his gravelly tones. My tip to make it onto radio would be "Follow The Star" by Mary Mary though jazz buffs will enjoy Kirk Whalum's arrangement of "Away In A Manger". Not exactly pioneering stuff but okay of its kind.
