Atlanta-based gospel singer Beverly Heath’s contribution to the Christmas season is “Immanuel,” a heartwarmingly-rendered carol about the newborn Christ child.
Surrounded by background vocalists, Heath weaves her lyrics around the very definition of Immanuel, God with us, to express her joy over the coming of “the one true gift of love.” Keyth Lee’s orchestration, which includes a dramatic key change and sweeping crescendo entrance to the final stanza, sells the song.
