Is it Christmas music time already? We might just be starting October, but a few artists are getting in the mood for the holidays. One such artist is soul crooner Anthony Hamilton. The GRAMMY Award-winner will be getting us in the Christmas spirit this year with his first ever holiday album, Home For The Holidays.
While he's offering up takes on Christmas classics like "Little Drummer Boy," "Away In A Manger" and "The Christmas Song" (and thankfully didn't include a cover of "This Christmas"), he's also throwing in covers of Christmas soul classics like James Brown's "Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto" and the timeless "Please Come Home For Christmas" along with six originals. He's also invited some esteemed guests to the festivities: Gavin DeGraw, ZZ Ward and soul legend Chaka Khan.
It sounds like this is one holiday party that you won't want to miss. Check out the tracklist for Home For The Holidays below and be ready to get in the Christmas spirit when the album is unwrapped on October 21st.
