Now, Melinda Doolittle brings her soulful voice to your favorite Christmas songs, along with originals such as “God Bless Us Everyone,” which she co-wrote with songwriter Regie Hamm (“Time of My Life”). From sacred to Motown, get ready to laugh, cry, and reminisce as you celebrate the most wonderful season of all with Melinda Doolittle.

"Like a young Tina Turner, she can go from a slinky purr to a mighty, gospel charged growl…that'll keep you coming back for more."
