From Enchanted, Wicked, Rent, Glee, and If/Then comes a powerful voice most often recognized as the voice of Elsa in Frozen with the Oscar winning song “Let It Go.” Idina Menzel has a new album called Holiday Wishes with twelve holiday hits to make your Christmas a little merrier and we were excited to be provided her album to review.
Holiday Wishes was produced by Grammy Award-winner Walter Afanasieff (Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey) and features classic favorites as “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” as well as Joni Mitchell’s Christmas-themed “River,” one of Menzel’s favorites.
Guest performances by Kenny G and Michael Bublé on “Baby It’s Cold Outside” appear on Holiday Wishes.
Idina currently stars as Elizabeth in the original Broadway production of If/Then and has a career spanning stage, film, television, and music. She made history as the first person with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.

I participated in the Idina Menzel Holiday Wishes album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.
