GLEE: THE MUSIC, THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM, VOLUME 2 FEATURES TEN HOLIDAY CLASSICS AND TWO NEW ORIGINAL TRACKS
Just in time for the holidays, Glee brings joy to the world with the release of Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Volume 2, which became available on Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
The Glee holiday cheer is spread with the cast’s own festive renditions of such Christmas staples as “Little Drummer Boy”, “Let It Snow” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. Especially poignant is the Glee cast’s interpretation of Band Aid’s 1984 hit “Do They Know Its Christmas?,” which raised money to benefit famine relief in Ethiopia and sold 1 million copies in it’s first week.
New cast members, Lindsay Pearce, Alex Newell, and Damian McGinty, from the wildly popular show The Glee Project are featured on “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and “Blue Christmas”, along with fellow discovery Samuel Larson accompanying the Glee cast on “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”. Among the 12 tracks on Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Volume 2 are two original songs “Extraordinary Merry Christmas” and “Christmas Eve With You”, both written by Adam Anders, Peer Astrom and Shelly Peiken (see full track listing below).

My OpinionI am a huge fan of the show Glee and most of all their songs and music! That is why I was so excited to receive this new Glee Christmas CD!
It was just as good as I expected and I love how they put their own twist and spin on classic Christmas favorites as well as added two news ones of their own to the album!
If you like Christmas music or like the music from Glee, then you are going to want to grab this cd ASAP! It is fun to listen to and as always the cast from Glee sounds great!
