I wrote a post last year about unconventional holiday music (one of my favorite early posts) and I definitely have my offbeat holiday tunes on shuffle right now. I’m also mixing in more traditional music, and I have absolutely fallen in love with Idina Menzel’s Christmas: A Season of Love.

She is, without question, one of my favorite musical artists, and this album is fantastic.
Every song is a winner, but I especially enjoy her duet with Ariana Grande, which pays tribute to an unsung holiday hero:
And a stunning medley of two classic songs:
The album is available everywhere, and if you’re an Amazon Prime member, it’s included in the free streaming service.
