This week, Motown Christmas is the top-selling album on Billboard’s Gospel Albums chart, with more than 6,000 units sold. The Associated Press said that Motown Christmas “doesn’t disappoint…with impressive duets and solo performances”; while the Journal of Gospel Music calls the album “a marvelous addition to the Christmas canon.”
Under the direction of Grammy Award winning producer and Motown Gospel Vice President of A&R Aaron Lindsey, who recorded with live musicians to exceptional sonic effect, Motown Christmas boasts the soulful, feel-good signature Motown sound with a little heart pulling praise and worship added to the mix. “I’m hoping this album draws people together while reminding us of the reason that we celebrate Christmas, which is because we have a savior,” says Lindsey. “We all love getting gifts, this music is even a gift, but the real gift is from heaven.”
