The well traveled Oleta Adams has had a particularly diversified singing career.
A Seattle, Washington native, she was discovered performing in Kansas City by the popular 1980's English group Tears for Fears.
The British band (best known for "Shout," and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World,") prominently featured Oleta's soulful voice on their 1989 album, "The Seeds of Love."
Christmas Time with Oleta, her ninth release, features energetic arrangements of traditional holiday classics, dominated by her rich, powerful, earthy voice.
