Anyone watch the American Music Awards last night? Any thoughts? They did some pretty cool stuff visually. I especially liked what they did with Snow Patrol. Below are links to new Christmas music for this year. I love finding good modern arrangements of Christmas carols.
Todd Agnew’s album Do You See What I See brings you 11 songs, each from a different perspective of someone involved in the birth of Christ.
