Faith Evans' first Christmas album, appropriately titled A Faithful Christmas, is very uneven and hastily thrown together. Within the span of 40 minutes, Evans switches between songs that sound thoroughly modern and songs that attempt to sound as if they were made decades ago, and she covers both secular and religious material, in addition to offering some originals that are spirited but bland

Work on the album began in mid-2005 after the release of her fourth studio album The First Lady. Studio album by.
