I am trying to avoid seriously gospel sentiment here wherein songs about Christ’s birth are roof-raisers for our own spirits. You know, like “Christmas is a Birthday” bested with Spanish guitar and folk by Burl Ives. Or Judy Garland crooning/narrating “The Birthday of a King” to the big band.
On the other stigmata, Danni-Shannon works in the R+B so that “A Birthday Party for Jesus” is just that, an actual party. Thank you.
