When Cross Rhythms reviewed the 2017 version of this album, our reviewer commented how much he enjoyed Lauren's jazzed-up version of "Jingle Bells" while her husky contralto worked well on carol evergreens like "O Come All Ye Faithful" and her version of "Silent Night". Now that Lauren has ascended to the position of CCM's best loved female singer, it's hardly surprising her record company have put a Deluxe Edition out to catch the 2018 Christmas sales. And such is that delicious voice that her run-throughs of "Away In A Manger" and "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" are worth a listen. The same, though, can't be said of her cornball stab at "Winter Wonderland". No doubt there'll be more Christmas albums in the years ahead. Here's hoping that, in future, she avoids the predictable mainstream stuff.

Product Description
The Deluxe Edition of Behold: A Christmas Collection with additional content Dove Award and K-LOVE Award winning artist, Lauren Daigle, had her first full album, How Can It Be, debut No. 1 on Billboards Christian Albums Chart in 2015.

Lauren also features on Chris Tomlin’s Christmas album Adore taking the only vocal slot on the beautiful song Noel. Behold includes nine yuletide standards and one originala tender, jazz reinterpretation of Laurens first radio single Light of the World. Worshipful favourites like O Come All Ye Faithful and What Child Is This (here given a unique, uptempo feel with a fun tip-of-the-hat to Favourite Things from The Sound of Music) take their places alongside festive fare like Jingle Bells and Merry Little Christmas.
