There's an aspect of Christmas that is hopeful and wishful and childlike,' Cosgrove said. 'And it feels good to honor that childlike spirit. That's what this album does.' The CD blends Cosgrove's soothing voice and playfulness with the beauty and strength of the Kansas City Children's Chorus from the University of Missouri ? Kansas City Conservatory of Music. The ensemble strikes the perfect balance between the childlike anticipation and solemn reverence evoked by the season.
