Aaron Burr himself successfully serenades us with this soulful take on these gorgeous Christmas classics.

The cold never bothered her, anyway! If you’ve ever wanted to here Idina belt “All I Want For Christmas is You,” this is the album for you.

Barbra. That is all the convincing anyone should need to listen to this album.

Everyone’s favorite Broadway dynamo makes the usual Christmas hits just a little more fun.
7. Julie Andrews – Greatest Christmas Songs (2000)
She’s beauty, she’s grace, she’s Ms. Julie Andrews. This album is one of our favorite things.
8. Josh Groban – Noel (2007)
The quintessential Christmas Album from Broadway’s brightest new star who just happens to be an angelic Lyric Baritone.
9. Broadway’s Carols for a Cure (2016)
Every year Broadway comes together and record “Carols for a Cure” to raise money for Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights Aids. The cast of Hamilton singing “Joy to the World?” Yes, please.
