The 2003 American Idol contestant Kimberley Locke's take on Christmas caroling is festive, soulful and romantic all at once. Her cover of Wham's "Last Christmas" makes the yuletide gay with acoustic guitars, looped handclaps and her silky, sultry voice. She also kisses new life into the Carpenters' "Merry Christmas Darling" with subtly lush orchestral arrangements and heavenly harmonies. Dave Koz's saxophone playing peppers this delightful album with inner city steez. And you can only get Locke's Christmas digitally! That's right, you won't find this baby on the retail shelves.
