This is the time for snowflakes and Christmas music to fill the air. Gary Pratt has released three songs to broadcasters to help get everyone in the holiday spirit. From the album titled ANGELS IN THE SNOW, The songs are “Merry Christmas Everyone” (YouTube Link), “Angels In The Snow”(YouTube Link), and “It Wasn’t His Child” (YouTube Link). All of the songs in album are available on YouTube, as well as Spotify. ‘
These great Christmas songs and Gary’s calming voice go together like sunshine and smiles. His bio refers to him as an ‘energetic country entertainer,’ and while that may be true, I’m glad he didn’t bring out too much of that energy to these recordings. With the up-tempo “Winter Wonderland”, you hear a little just enough of Gary’s energy to know that he would be a fun artist to watch on stage. I think even Elvis fans are going to enjoy Gary’s rendition of “Blue Christmas”.
Dawn Noelle joins him on this song, as well as several others on the album. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be “The Magic of Christmas”. I’d never heard that song before, but it will definitely go on my holiday playlist. Dawn opens this one, and it seems to be the perfect song for a duet. Even though it was the first time I heard it, I was singing along before it was over. Dawn is the solo artist on “Merry Christmas Darling”.
From start to finish the album is just right for the holidays. A great selection of songs, beautifully performed by Gary Pratt & Dawn Noelle. You can keep up with Gary by checking out his social media links listed below the
