McDonald got an early Christmas present from Hallmark when the holiday album he released through the card store went gold in a matter of days
Having his holiday album, "Through the Many Winters: A Christmas Album," went gold surely has become a special Christmas present for singer Michael McDonald.
Arriving in Hallmark's stores in November 2005, the album sold more than a half-million copies in only two weeks, so said Ann Herrick, who runs the store's seasonal music program.
In the meantime, it is reported that the next one up will be "With Love," a new recording by crooner Michael Buble that will arrive in time for the Valentine's Day holiday.
