I fell in love with Soul Christmas music in 1992 with a cassette of Christmas music that I pulled out every year. It took me about 3 years to recognize the pure genius of Otis Reddings version of White Christmas. Talk about making something your own! Otis sang the song in the most soulful sincere way ever! Totally changed the song to make it unique. I discovered the blueprint for Soul Christmas
Upon further investigation. I found a rich full tradition of soul Christmas Songs. I discovered and appreciated Motown’s contribution to the tradition.
