The Christmas holiday is upon us. In keeping with the spirit of giving, we present to you a Friday Five full of a deeper shade of soul.
Once upon a time in Urban America, it was common to hear at least one or two of these songs at some point during the holiday season:
The Temptations – Silent Night
James Brown - Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto
Run-DMC – Christmas In Hollis
Donny Hathaway- This Christmas
Ray Charles - The Spirit of Christmas
And with that, Merry Christmas!
