Following the critical acclaim of her 2006 release, Grace and Gratitude, Christmas Wish features Olivias signaturevocals and plush, new arrangements of classic holiday favorites as well as new songs written by Olivia and herproducer, Amy Sky. Music is such an integral part of the holidays for me that I wanted to create a different type ofChristmas album that would inspire the listener to share that spirit of the holidays not only during the season but, tocarry those sentiments throughout the year, says Olivia.
The CD reprises the musical approach that made Grace and Gratitude a favorite for both critics and fans alike. Byintermingling Olivias vocals with stirring musical interludes, the CD takes the listener on a journey infusing classicholiday standards with new songs that both touch the heart and soul while allowing the listener to reminisce andreflect on their own holiday memories. I love hearing Christmas songs on the radio every holiday season as it bringsback so many wonderful memories with my family and friends, says Olivia. That feeling was the inspiration behindChristmas on My Radio, a doo-wop inspired song with a sound reminiscent of Olivias hits from Grease, the filmthat shot her to super-stardom and which remains the most successful movie musical of all time.
Other songs such as the lush and romantic Every Time It Snows, which features the guest vocals of Latin superstarJon Secada, combines Olivias angelic voice with Secadas velvety croon. In addition, the CD features duets withBarry Manilow (A Gift Of Love), Michael McDonald (All Through The Night) and a cameo by Canadian superstarJann Arden (Silent Night). The CD also features the musical talents of David Foster (Every Time It Snows) andJim Brickman (A Mothers Christmas Wish) on keyboards and piano. A new version of her acclaimed 2006 hit,Instrument of Peace sums up the message of the holidays a time we are all hopeful for peace around the world.Musical interludes including Away In A Manger, The First Noel, Angels We Have Heard On High and We WishYou A Merry Christmas, weave a tapestry of peace, joy and inspiration between the stunning vocals.
