Picture from http://newsok.com/article/5521458

This year the Pentatonix released a Christmas album, and the songs include: “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “White Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “Up On The Housetop,” “The Christmas Sing-Along,” “Coventry Carol,” “Hallelujah,” “Coldest Winter,” “Good To Be Bad,” and “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays”

My favorite songs on the album is “Hallelujah”. I love the ending of Hallelujah because everyone is humming and the song is slow and it sounds really good. Kirstin Maldonado is a great singer because when she sings she stands out a lot because of her voice.
