'This Christmas' is one of those classics that was done right when Donny Hathaway did the original back in the day. There have been many attempts at recapturing that magic over the years and some have actually succeeded. This young fellow from Memphis Tennessee is one of those who's got it down to a science. Many of you may already be familiar with Kendrick P, he has had several songs released over the years. Some of his most notable have been 'Come Correct', and 'Fallen'.

He has officially returned to close out the year with 'This Christmas'. The song is beautifully done and while it's a little similar to the Chris Brown version, Kendrick does a great job of allowing us to distinguish between the two and love his version just as well.

I had the chance to sit down and talk with Kendrick P, earlier this year, and we talked about his start, and who he'd like to work with. I knew from that conversation that he was going to be around for a while, and would definitely secure his way into the top of the world. With Christmas in 3 days, it is time to make sure your playlist is put together and ready for a great day of music and fun with the family this holiday.
