Weihnachten 2011: Die CD-Neuerscheinungen – Justin Bieber toppt sie alle …

Auch 2011 gibt es zur schönsten Zeit des Jahres reichlich viel Soundtrack. Es ist für jeden etwas dabei, von R & B über Gospel, Rock und Pop bis hin zu den Vertretern moderner christlicher Popmusik. Die Jazzer haben geliefert, und auch die Opernsänger, Teeniestars genauso wie gefeierte Instrumentalisten.

Justin Bieber ist 2011 etwas gelungen, was noch keinem Mann in der 55-jährigen Geschichte der BILLBOARD-Charts gelungen: Er schaffte mit seiner Weihnachts-CD »Under the Mistletoe« den Einstieg auf Platz 1 der US-Charts. Nur sieben andere Künstler haben ihre Weihnachts-CDs bis hin zur Chartsspitze pushen können:

- Susan Boyle: »The Gift« (2010)
- Josh Groban: »Noel« (1997)
- Kenny G: »Miracles – the Holiday Album« (1994)
- Mitch Miller: »Holiday Sing Along With Mitch« (1962) und »Christmas Sing-Along With Mitch« (1958)
- Bing Crosby: »Merry Christmas« (1957)
- Elvis Presley: »Elvis’ Christmas Album« (1957)

»Under the Mistletoe« ist darüber hinaus bereits das dritte Nr.-1.-Album von Justin Bieber. Auch das ist einer seiner Rekorde: Bieber ist der erste Künstler, der vor seinem 18. Geburtstag bereits auf drei Chartstopper verweisen kann.

JS: Die kleine Jackie Evacho singt weile es ihr spass macht und ihre eltern unterstutzen ihren traum sagerinn zu sein. Sie werde sehr geschutzt von ihre eltern. Sie ist mit 11 (fast 12) jahre schon eine “Profi” singer.

Ihren auf tritt bei den private kanal “PBS” in ihren Dream With Me Konzert mit David Foster war toll !

Dann kommt der Justin Bieber nicht mit.

Da freue ich mich schon auf die CD zum diesjährigen VBW-Weihnachtskonzert *lol*

Danke für die Auflistung. Sehr interessant und sicher auch was für mich dabei. Allerdings sollte man sich die Jackie Evancho Scheibe ersparen. Das ist meiner Meinung nach eine US-Kitsch-Freak-Show und dazu die schamlose Ausbeutung eines Kindes.
