0 Odetta Creates A Unique Christmas Concert

In 2005, Odetta, the singer of folk based African American traditional songs, released an immaculately recorded live album.

Gonna Let It Shine, A Concert for the Holidays is a stellar collection of spirituals celebrating Christmas.

If you love gospel, praise, and traditional spirituals, Odetta delivers a definitive 16 song collection of favorites.

The clarity of the live sound is phenomenal. Gonna Let It Shine, A Concert for the Holidays was recorded in front of a festive audience on the campus of Fordham University in New York City.

Throughout both the ballads and uptempo tracks, Odetta respectfully transmits an inspirational message propelled by the power of faith and the glory of Christmas.

Gonna Let It Shine, A Concert for the Holidays, is a completely different Christmas album.

It comes from the classically trained, civil rights savvy, legendary vocalist from Birmingham, Alabama, the late Odetta (who passed away on December 2, 2008).
