Nowadays well produced Christmas albums by South African artists are by all accounts a rarity and very few among those have that something special that would set them apart from the average offering.

However... Carmen Xclusive has never been your average singer and this is not an average album.
One of our favourite stories here at Colored Girls Rock that have resonated with many of us since childhood is the story of Stone Soup.
