New Song: Mary J. Blige Ft. The Clark Sisters – ‘The First Noel’

Published: Sunday 20th Oct 2013 by Rashad

 

It will be a ‘A Mary Christmas’ if the numbers listed aboard Mary J. Blige‘s first full length holiday album are anything to judge by.

As reported here, the album is decorated with guest appearances from the likes of fellow music royal Barbra Streisand, Latin hitmaker Marc Anthony, and powerhouse singer Jessie J.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Hip Hop Soul queen also enlisted the incomparable vocals of gospel royalty The Clark Sisters for an amazing take on Christmas classic ‘The First Noel’.  Immediately becoming a fan favorite on the set – which hit stores October 15th – tuck in below to hear this match made in holiday heaven:


 

Yes yes yes and yes some more!

With all the performers listed known for their proclivities to take center stage with every weapon in their vocals arsenals (see:  growls, melisma, and, of course, volume), the level of restraint practiced by all was much welcomed on this Christmas classic.  But, even with that restraint, the ladies managed to offer a soulful showing befitting of Hip Hop Soul and gospel royalty.

As always, Karen’s unmistakable vocal stylings shine as a highlight.

    Beautiful Christmas Album. Mariah could never have the legendary Clark Sisters and Barbara Striesand on her Christmas album. Only Mary, because she is the QUeen.

      You clearly are no mariah fan because she is cool with them. They reference each other all the time. Try your hate again with facts. It will work better 4 u

    • cookie October 21, 2013

      One of the sisters actually paid tribute to mariah. I swear I can not stand stupid hate. Even Mary and Mariah call each others sisters. They all are friends.

    • cookie October 21, 2013

      To be specific it was Karen Clark and she tribute Mariah Carey singing”Anytime You Need a Friend”. Lol ohhhh the struggle to discredit a legend is real in the field

  8. WhiteBoi October 20, 2013

  9. Chillin October 21, 2013

    Love it Mary!! and i love everything about Christmas

    Damn it! This is so damn basic. It just shows Mariah Carey´s greatness. Celine Dion´s Xmas album also slayes all these releases that flop every year.

  11. Shaun October 22, 2013

    Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect
    against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard
    on. Any recommendations?
