    Whitney Houston’s One Wish: The Holiday Album is in my opinion one of Whitney’s most rewarding and uplifting albums she has ever heavenly sent to her fans. Forget about the media, the tabloids, and the disappointment of her last album, Just Whitney, “THE VOICE” herself has made a tremendous effort to rise once again through this body of art. The first song I just WANTED to hear before my mother bought this was “Little Drummer Boy” featuring miss Bobbie Kristina Brown! Immediately from hearing that sweet and already womanly voice from Bobbie Kristina, I fell in love with all the rest. My other all time favorite Christmas songs on here are “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “Joy To the World” (it’s hard to tell if that version came from The Preacher’s Wife soundtrack…i believe that she added a little something special in there…it sounds completely different from the soundtrack). All in all, I hope any fan or used-to-be-fan can give Miss Whitney a chance, she has come back with something very rewarding and special for us to share with loved ones on the holiday through peace, joy, and love from heaven to earth.

    Whitney’s best album, November 26, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: One Wish: The Holiday Album (Audio CD)
    I own all her albums & soundtracks, and I think that with this christmas album, she has delivered her best work yet! Her delivery is so full of emotion (something that lacked on her earlier records) and her vocals are extremely strong. Highlights are the haunting and powerful O Holy Night, the very original and uplifting Deck the Halls/Silent Night and basically every track.
    The production is TOP NOTCH! And the vocals are TOP NOTCH! It doesn’t mean that she sounds like “Saving All My Love For You” when she was 21, the innocence is gone, but she sounds close to the Preacher’s Wife, just a little deeper. Her voice is now mature and full of emotion and soul. In my opinion, her voice and singing is superior now because it’s not bland like it was in the 80′s. But do not worry, with this album, she hits all the high notes and her vibrato is back. She sounds much better then her last effort last year.
    All the clips on amazon are taken from the beginning of the songs, so each song builds up later into something VERY special.

    Whitney Brings Holiday Spirit Early, November 19, 2003

    When I heard that Whitney was doing a Christmas album, I had mixed feelings. After buying and hearing this CD, I am more than happy that I bought it. The feelings she puts into each song can definitely be felt and sends a sense of love, happiness, and joy through your being. I am generally not a holiday person, but this cd has inspired me to put a bit more effort in being cheerful for the holidays. Ms. Houston has chosen songs that have been recorded in their traditional style and made them her own. One Wish is excellent and a must have.
