christmas and gregory porter

The big jazz singer Gregory Porter and CAGG is not an obvious combination. His first Christmas album 'Christmas Wish' contains a lot of smooth  and slick songs, with only a few covers. Like Stevie Wonder's 'One Day At Christmas'. But there is one surprising song, the title track, on his album. It's about his dearest wish:

If I had one wish, one wish to gift  that  day

It would be to kiss my momma on Christmas day 

It starts with an old fashioned swinging organ and slowly it turns into a crazy gospel song. His brown voice with a real gospel choir is a great combination.
