A diva is not truly a diva until she releases a Christmas album. 1994's CHRISTMAS SPIRIT is Donna Summer's entry into the canon, and a fine one it is. Summer wisely sticks to the basics here. The two originals, the title track, and "Christmas Is Here" are fine, but Summer really shines on the low-key versions of standards like Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song" and Irving Berlin's "White Christmas."
A born-again Christian, Summer devotes a good chunk of the album to traditional carols and hymns, which she sings with devotion and restraint. The arrangements are mildly synthesizer-heavy, but unobtrusive, and Summer's still-remarkable voice is always at the forefront.
