Merry Christmas To You  (Fervent Records)
by  Sidewalk Prophets

FOR FANS OF: MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Big Daddy Weave
Rating: 3 Stars

With a little more big-band flair, Sidewalk Prophets has put together a fun, entertaining ensemble of Christmas music. Best track is definitely “White Christmas,” where guest Francesca Battistelli lends a flawless jazz vocal. The band also does a great arrangement of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” but their version of “What Child Is This” is a bit odd, and doesn’t translate as well.
