One “Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas” CD, hot chocolate, and two little girls ready to decorate the tree.  About Yancy:

yancy2 “Whether onstage or tucked away behind a studio microphone, Yancy’s soaring, confident vocals are unquestionably unique.  Known for her bright and upbeat pop style, Yancy’s music has already endeared her to children and preteen audiences around the country.  With the national release of Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas (Pure Blue/Word Distribution), she brings her signature style to listeners of every age.

Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas was produced by Stephen Leiweke (Chris Sligh, Cindy Morgan) and features Yancy’s cheerful arrangements of classic and original Christmas selections.  “The Greatest Gift” is the album’s debut single, while additional highlights of the project include such favorites as “Wonderful Christmastime,” “The First Noel,” and “Joy To The World,” as well as the Yancy-penned “Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas” and  “Christmastime.”

hypothesis Ok, I admit it.  I am one of those people who will turn on the radio and search for a station playing Christmas carols right after Halloween.  There’s just something about those songs that warms the heart and really gets me into the spirit of the Season.  So, when I was asked to review the new release by Yancy entitled, “Have a Fancy Yancy Christmas,”  I was more than excited!

The CD features 10 songs which are a mixture of traditional Christmas carols and contemporary favorites, but all performed in a very fun and modern way.  Two tracks are original songs, as well.  I was concerned that the CD wouldn’t be a good one to play as we decorated the house (a family tradition), but my preschooler recognized several songs and sang along!  She particulary enjoyed the Medley which includes a hyped up version of Jingle Bells and Feliz Navidad.  As an adult, I loved the fact that the CD contains some of my favorite Christmas carols (The First Noel), but the artist puts her own creativity into the songs making them have a more modern feel….this isn’t your Mom’s Christmas album!  Many songs encouraged an impromptu dance party in my living room!

hypothesis “Have a Fancy Nancy Christmas” was the perfect CD for our annual tradition of decorating the house for the Holidays!  The kids and I danced around the living room to both traditional songs we could sing along with and the original songs Yancy penned for this album.   We really had a great time and this CD will definitely be one we listen to a LOT this Season!

I wanted to learn more about this artist (we have the same birthday!) and realized she has some other interesting albums as well.  I would love to check out the “Little Praise Party” CD for my preschooler!
