Holiday Wishes, a Christmas album recorded by Tony Award-winning singer/actress Idina Menzel, is available now from Warner Bros. Records.
Idina Menzel’s career has traversed stage, film, television, and music. She most recently won the world over with her portrayal of Queen Elsa in the Walt Disney Animation blockbuster FROZEN, in which she sings the film’s Oscar-winning song “Let It Go.” After her performance of the multi-platinum song at the 86th annual Academy Awards, she made history as the first person with both a Billboard Top 10 hit and a Tony Award for acting.
With the release of her new album from Warner Bros. Records, Holiday Wishes, Idina has pleased millions of fans–myself included! The album was produced by Grammy Award-winner Walter Afanasieff and features such classic favorites as “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” as well as Joni Mitchell’s Christmas-themed “River,” one of Menzel’s personal favorites. (See full track listing below.)

Another Holiday Wishes highlight is the duet with international superstar Michael Bublé on “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” This track is one of my favorites, as it not only highlights Idina’s beautiful voice, but it also allows her sweet personality to shine through in the playful banter of the song’s lyrics. An exclusive Target edition of Holiday Wishes features two more bonus tracks: “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” and “Mother’s Spiritual.”
Click below for a sampling of the album and I’m sure you’ll be smitten with Idina’s gorgeous renditions of holiday favorites. My family has listened countless times already; Holiday Wishes plays in my car every time we head out the door. I just can’t help but sing along to “Silent Night,” “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and “When You Wish Upon a Star”…well, all of them, actually! I’m grateful to Idina for giving fans this wonderful Christmas gift.
