“Where are you, Christmas?” by Pentatonix

The wildly successful a cappella group Pentatonix released a sentimental “Where are you, Christmas?” video on Dec. 6. The group put out a new Christmas album, titled “Christmas is Here!” on Oct, 28, giving audiences plenty of time to get into the holiday spirit. The album presents standards like “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “Jingle Bells” and “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree,” all with a Pentatonix twist.



“Bring me Love” by John Legend

John Legend co-wrote this new holiday love song with Meghan Trainor. This is the lead single off his new album A Legendary Christmas Collection, which promptly rose to the number one spot on the Billboard Holiday Albums Chart after its debut in October.



“This Christmas Day” by Jessie J

A gospel choir and a string section support Jessie J’s powerful voice on “This Christmas Day,” an original song written by pop artist and songwriter Rodney Jerkins. It also happens to be the name of her first-ever Christmas album, released in October. The 11-track album includes familiar songs with Jessie J twists such as  “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town,” “Winter Wonderland” featuring Boyz II Men and “The Christmas Song” featuring Babyface.
