Jingle Bells features Tim Boman II and the two work this song into a scat-fest, jazzy groove with ease. New Destiny Joy artist Denise Tichenor shines on "Oh Holy Night" a don't miss track for this project. Listening to her performance you understand why she won the contest to become one of the first artists on Vickie Winans label.
