Slade’s riveting gospel mash-up, “Make Me Over/Total Praise” captures the spirit and reverence of the holiday (http://smarturl.it/ACH_B_Slade). And the New York-based quintet Livré’s a capella version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman” is a nod to the gospel stylings of both Take 6 and their secular contemporaries Pentatonix (http://smarturl.it/ACH_Livre). The group is causing quite a stir in the gospel world with their deeply moving harmonies and their most recent hit, “Everything’s Coming Up Jesus.”
