Gwen Stefani’s You Make It Feel Like Christmas Special Album: The initial broadcast of the special was aired in conjunction with Stefani’s album of the same name. Stefani had the idea for a Christmas album when visiting Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch. She told Billboard magazine in 2017 that she was going for a run when she thought to herself, “What if I did write a Christmas song? What would it be?”
And within minutes, the melody and lyrics just came to her. Weeks later, she recorded “Christmas Eve,” her first original holiday song.
“It came together quickly like it was meant to be,” she told Billboard, adding, “I wanted to do it for years, but when do you find the time? … It was really a whim. The way it works is you have to get it done really early, and I had no idea that I would be able to write so quickly because I’m such a slow writer. It just came right out. I did six songs in three sessions.”
The album contains six originals and six covers of holiday classics. The originals include “My Gift Is You,” “When I Was a Little Girl,” “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” “Under the Christmas Lights,” “Never Kissed Anyone With Blue Eyes Before You,” and “Christmas Eve.”
The covers include “Jingle Bells,” “Let It Snow” “Silent Night,” “Last Christmas,” “Santa Baby,” and “White Christmas.”
Gwen Stefani’s You Make It Feel Like Christmas special airs Thursday, December 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, following the live two-hour Miss America competition, on NBC.
