As previously reported, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is planning on releasing her first album of traditional holiday favorites, and has officially set an October release date for the project.
Mary first spoke of the album back in June when she performed alongside singer Jennifer Lopez at the Chime for Change concert. It was then the two divas reportedly decided to do a duet which is rumored to be featured on the album.
This will be Mary’s first Christmas CD, though she has previously appeared on Christmas albums by both Andrea Bocelli and Rod Stewart.
Mary’s album will be produced by legendary songwriter/producer David Foster. Foster has previously produced Christmas albums by Josh Groban, Celine Dion, Michael Bublé and many others.
