What Are Music Reviewers Saying About Danny Gokey’s “Christmas is Here”?

Santa Danny (340x394)

New York Times  “Making Merry With Music” reviews Danny Gokey’s “Christmas Is Here” among others:

“Christian pop newbie — has a robust voice that allows him to jump among his various identities without seeming out of place. On his first Christmas album, with lustrous production by Keith Thomas, he shows an ambitious interest in Christmas songs made famous by soul music titans, including “This Christmas” (Donny Hathaway) and “What Christmas Means to Me” (Stevie Wonder). Mr. Gokey’s “White Christmas” is sultry, and he wields real power on “Mary, Did You Know?”
