Hi, Vixens!!! How are all of you today? Ready for another great holiday song??? Then let’s get to it.
Soul music-whether in the form of Motown, R&B, Philly Soul, Gospel or some other variation-has been a favorite of mine forever. I love music that is consumed with so much emotion. It reminds me I am alive and hits my soul like a bolt of electricity, which is perhaps where the term “soul music” came from-music that touches the soul.

So many moments hit me like that: the first time I heard Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay“, and Ray Charles’ “America The Beautiful“, and Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard it Through The Grapevine” not to mention his absolutely sublime version of “The Star Spangled Banner“, anything at all by Aretha Franklin and “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green, to name a few.
And while we are on the subject of Al Green, his version of “O Holy Night” sent shivers down my spine from the second I heard it. Done in his signature style, it oozes personality, charm, soul, R&B and every emotion it makes you feel. It is simply majestic!!!
I do not own the rights to anything, I am just sharing some of my favorite music with you.
