Whether you're rocking around the Christmas tree or hearing silver bells on city sidewalks dressed in holiday style—music is an essential part of the holiday season. From new takes on Christmas classics to original tunes, there is no shortage of songs to convey the spirit and magic.
Voices from the theatre have often provided their interpretations to the most wonderful time of the year, like Barbra Streisand's 1967 album A Christmas Album, Kristin Chenoweth's 2008 A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas, and Norm Lewis' 2018 The Norm Lewis Christmas Album. This year has proved no exception, with plenty of festive albums, EPs, and singles from stage performers.
Take a look at the list below for holiday singles and albums, most available to enjoy on Spotify and can be found on most other streaming platforms.
