When I was contacted for the opportunity to review Mary J. Blige’s first ever Christmas CD I was excited beyond words! I’ve been a HUGE Mary J. Blige fan since The first time I heard her sing. I remember like it was yesterday…the song was “My Life” back in 1994. I was automatically hooked to her music because of her amazing voice!

I am also a big Christmas song fan. I have my favorites like “The Christmas Song” and “The Little Drummer Boy.”  I know what you’re thinking…With the thousands of Christmas albums available in the market today, which ones are worth purchasing? Well my friends let me tell you that “A Mary Christmas” by Mary J. Blige is definitely one that should be in every Mary J. Blige / Christmas fan’s music library! “A Mary Christmas” is a radiant and vibrant musical work both enlightening and inspirational. This CD has holiday favorites that will enrich your holiday season. This is the perfect CD for the Christmas season whether you’re sitting by the fireplace, trimming your tree, cooking, shopping, or driving. This is a CD that will definitely get you into the Christmas groove!

With twelve holiday classics, and duets with extraordinary artists like Barbra Streisand and Chris Botti in “When You Wish Upon A Star,” “Do You Hear What I Hear” with Jessie J, “The First Noel” with The Clark Sisters, and my favorite duet, “Noche De Paz” (Silent Night) with Marc Anthony. Mary J. Blige’s sultry and soothing voice turned “My Favorite Things” into a new favorite holiday classic.

Mary Package

When I received the package I couldn’t wait to open it! It contained The CD – personally autographed by Mary J. Blige, a limited-edition “A Mary Christmas” Zine Pack,  and a super cool tote bag! I couldn’t believe all the goodies! Just the autographed CD was enough to feel faint. 🙂 This is definitely a collection that you will find yourself singing along with. Some songs are very traditional, and in others you can feel more of Mary J. Blige’s wonderful influence on the beat and tone of the song. It’s a great collection that is wonderfully put together. I personally enjoyed it being a HUGE fan of hers, and hearing many of my favorites in her voice added that extra special touch to my holiday season.
