Scott MacIntyre, an alum of the reality singing competition "American Idol," released his holiday album "Christmas in Paris," on November 19.
It commences with the haunting "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" and it is followed by "We Three Kings."
His album includes the uplifting holiday classic "Let It Show," and the title track "Christmas in Paris" is a calming vocal and delicate vocal performance by MacIntyre.
"Do You Hear What I Hear" is another controlled and tender vocal and he delivers a timeless rendition of "O Come All Ye Faithful."
"Celebrate Me Home" was one of the songs that was used on Idol as an exit song for the show's seventh season, and MacIntyre does it justice. Kenny Loggins, who sings the original, would certainly be proud.
His version of "Merry Little Christmas" is another treat, and the same holds true for "O Holy Night."
It closes with "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and "All Through The Night."
Scott MacIntyre's newest holiday project Christmas In Paris is a success. It is such a nostalgic and heartfelt studio effort, and he brings these songs to life with his piano and warm vocals. Music listeners that enjoy listening to ballads will certainly like this collection of Christmas songs. If he keeps this up, MacIntyre is destined to become the next Jim Brickman in music.
