Susan Boyle’s holiday album The Gift is aimed at “touching hearts” with Christmas classics like ‘The First Noel’ and ‘O Holy Night’ as well as a cover of rocker Lou Reed’s 1972 classic ‘Perfect Day.’
I wanted there to be a mix of songs that would flow with all our moods this holiday season,” Susan Boyle told about her album. “As much as the season is a time for reflection, it is also a time for fun and enjoyment with those closest to us.”
