HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE Review: Susan Boyle - The Gift CD

She catapulted to international stardom overnight with 500 million YouTube hits, smashed music records around the world with her triumphant debut album and now Susan Boyle returns with her eagerly awaited second album, The Gift. 

The Gift, sees Susan Boyle and world acclaimed producer Steve Mac reunited to present a breathtaking seasonal album. Featuring yule time favourites ‘The First Noel’ and ‘O Holy Night’, Susan also fearlessly takes on iconic pop songs including ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and ‘Perfect Day’ giving them a new identity.

Also making her musical debut on
The Gift is American medic and winner of the International Susan Search, Amber Stassi. Amber & Susan perform a stunning and inimitable rendition of ‘Do you Hear What I Hear’.

Now with a beautiful seasonal album she will, once again, defy critics and preconceptions.

Susan explained; "When making this album, I really wanted the songs to touch hearts. Music has always been a companion to me, particularly on special occasions. I wanted there to be a mix of songs that would flow with all our moods this holiday season. As much as the season is a time for reflection, it is also a time for fun and enjoyment with those closest to us."

I'm a music fanatic and holiday music is one of my favorites.  It always puts me in a good mood because this time of year is always a great time for me.  I have an amazing family and the best friends a person could ask for.  While listening to Susan Boyle - The Gift CD it made me think about the people in my life and how they are a gift.  I know that sounds cliche but it's the truth.  O Holy Night and O Come All Ye Faithful are absolutely beautiful songs but hearing Susan sing them brings them to a whole new level.  I love this CD and plan on giving it to a few people for Christmas.  The Gift gets 3 stars, easy.
