Aaron Neville Christmas Songs & Music

With influences of Cajun and Creole cultures creeping into his music, American soul star Aaron Neville has a sound that is all his own. This originality has of course crept into Neville's two Christmas albums as well, creating moody and evocative yuletide collections.

Aaron Neville Christmas Albums

Soulful Christmas

1993: Soulful Christmas

The dreamy sound of Aaron Neville’s voice turns this collection of Christmas classics into an album to remember. Neville’s Please Come Home For Christmas is brooding and moody, whilst his cover of Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! is uplifting and light-hearted. Neville produces magical renditions of classics like Silent Night and O Holy Night, interspersing them with lesser known carols like The Bells of St Mary’s. The two standout tracks however are the grooving Louisiana Christmas Day and a funky rendition of The Drifters’ classic Such A Night. Neville manages to slot the hit neatly in between the ten holiday themed songs and in the process, creates a yuletide album sure to complete your next Christmas gathering.

Christmas Prayer

2005: Christmas Prayer

Aaron Neville released this, his second Christmas album to mark a special holiday tour of the United States. Christmas Prayer, as the title suggests, consists predominantly of religious themed carols. Neville’s rendition of the gospel classic Go Tell it on the Mountain is enough to make you get up and dance, while his a Capella Joy to the World with The Blind Boys of Alabama choir brings is a fresh look at this classic. The handful of secular tracks, including Christmas Everyday and Merry Christmas Baby are fun and light-hearted, but it Neville’s moving Ave Maria that steals the show. Even at sixty-four years of age, Aaron Neville shows with Christmas Prayer that he is still able to deliver, whilst keeping things fresh and new at the same time.
