Best Christmas Albums – Josh Groban, ‘Noel’
Josh Groban is known for his outstanding pipes, so it's only natural that this operatic master would exercise his God-given gifts on a Christmas album. Groban's gospel-sounding voice on his holiday LP 'Noel' will be the perfect accompaniment for your annual wintery festivities.
The album, which was released in 2007, went on to sell about 3.6 million copies in the first 11 weeks of its release, therefore making it the best-selling album of the year. It was later certified Quintuple Platinum in 2008, proving that fans couldn't get enough Groban during the holidays.
'Noel' features Groban covering a number of Christmas classics as well as duets with artists such as Brian McKnight. However, his duet with Faith Hill on 'The First Noel,' the album's namesake, is truly the most memorable track.
