Christmas in the Spirit of Soul: The SWEET SOUL X-MAS REVUE

„Someday at Christmas“ by Stevie Wonder, „This Christmas Aretha” by Aretha Franklin or „Give Love At Christmas” by The Temptations – outstanding Christmas Albums of Soul Christmas Songs have always been of particular importance to the great figures of the genre. The creators of SWEET SOUL MUSIC REVUE pay tribute to that fact: With the SWEET SOUL X-MAS REVUE they have succeeded in setting up a soulful Christmas Show, which not only presents selected Christmas Soul Songs of the best Christmas albums but also brings dateless and all-time Soul classics onto stage.

For almost 10 years now, the SWEET SOUL MUSIC REVUE has gotten the crowd up and dance all over Germany and Europe. Looking back on more than 50 years of experience when it comes to Soul Music, the creators of the SWEET SOUL X-MAS REVUE now offer a very special Christmas program to their audience starting with Christmas Classics as „White Christmas“ (The Drifters), „Silent Night“ (The Temptations), „Merry Christmas“ (The Four Tops), „Mommie Kissing Santa Claus“ (Amy Winehouse) all the way to „Heaven Help Us All“ (Ray Charles). Other Soul classics in the Spirit of Christmas like „Unchained Melody“, „Midnight Train to Georgia“ or „Only You“ are of course an absolute must.

You won’t want to miss this musical Christmas highlight!
