A True Gift
A cd in which every track on here gives us a sweet reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. "When the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful and since we have places to go let it play let it play let it play" Let it play in your car, on your computer and be reminded that Jesus is the reason for the season and his salvation the best gift one could ever receive.

A WONDERFUL GIFT & BLESSING!
Here it is a month after Christmas, and here I am still listening to this wonderful treasure of songs. The title of this CD is perfect and very accurate. This CD is indeed a gift, not just for Christmastime, but for all year round. Songs that will remind you of the most precious GIFT, our savior Yeshua and spending eternal life with Him. As Mr. Jon said on the CD cover, "He gave His life, we give our hearts!" The opening and title track, The Gift, is such a touching, meaningful story and song, and the soft and tender way Mr. Jon sings held me captive the whole song through, the tears filled my eyes and made me feel deeply appreciative and inspired. This song will take your heart, and freely giving it to Him. Track 2 really tugs at my heart, the beautiful but sad melody, the way Mr. Jon sings this, I love it, but I cry. So sad that the meaning of Christmas is lost on so many people, and fades as the year passes by. Everyone gets lost at times, but if we keep Him and His spirit in our hearts throughout the year, it's Christmas Everyday. Hearing Mr. Jon sing the well known classics in track 3 & 6, surpasses any other versions by former artists, Mr. Jon has made his mark on them and they are more beautiful than I've heard anyone else sing. Track 4 is a beautiful song that will fill your heart with joy and Christmas spirit, and a beautiful dream of His promise. :) Track 5 shares the same feelings of Track 4, so beautiful and meaningful, and All Because Of CHRISTmas, and hearing Mr. Jon's beautiful voice, there's reason to feel happy and have love in your heart. I've never been to Heaven, but listening to Track 7, I am sure Mr. Jon's voice is the voice of an Angel. Such a beautiful song, and sigh..the most beautiful voice EVER! Track 8 & 9 are fun, upbeat and cheerful, they will have you toe tapping, singing along, leaving a smile on your face and fill your heart with cheer too. :) I love the country sound of both of them. Angels Among Us has always been a very touching song that I loved, but hearing Mr. Jon sing this is just WOW, totally breath taking BEAUTIFUL! Mr. Jon has a way of making you feel every word as he tells the story in the song, his voice is so poignant yet comforting. This song could have been written for Mr. Jon. No doubt in my mind and heart, I believe Mr. Jon is an angel among us, helping to guide us with his light and love to our savior, Yeshua. You will feel so Blessed just to listen to this outstanding CD. I LOVE IT! ♥

WHAT A GIFT!!!
The greatest gift of all is certainly the birth of Christ...but Jon's voice is also a God given gift and this cd is certainly a gift in itself!! I don't have the words to accurately describe all the beautiful songs but I'll do my best..the title song "The Gift" is one of the most touching and amazing songs I've ever heard!! I had goosebumps on top of goosebumps listening to this story of a beautiful miracle..!!God doesn't want or need expensive gifts..all He wants is for us to love him back with all our heart..and that song couldn't explain a better act of love of an orphan girl who only had a little bird with broken wings to give!!! from beginning to end i couldn't help the tears...The lyrics/music combined with Jon’s voice overflowing with love and emotion will surely touch your heart..and if it don't then you don’t have one!!! Track 2 is equally amazing and heart touching!!! it's a shame that many remember Him only during Christmas and forget him the rest of the year...He was born and died for us all so in return we should remember him everyday...it should be Christmas everyday!!!what a beautiful song combined with Jon's heavenly voice...another masterpiece!!Track 3 is a song i grew up with by Nat King Cole and it brings back many sweet memories but i must say Jon's version is the best..period!! it's so rich and beautiful and sweet and powerful all at once i can't put it into words..beautiful, beautiful job!!Track 4 another gem..and the words say exactly how I feel...what a beautiful Christmas dream!!Track 5 had me toetapping but such a beautiful song and incredible singing!!Track 6 another one I grew up with and I’ll take Jon's version over Judy’s anyday!! no offense to her fans..but this is my favorite version by my fav singer!!!Jon certainly brought back the feeling of an era gone by with his timeless performance!!!Track 7 oh my...such a beautiful and meaningful and Jon's performance couldn't have been better..perfection!! Tracks 7 & 8 are such great songs and will have you dancing for sure!!! Jon blows all other versions out of the water period!!!! then the last song "Angels Among Us" WOW!! a song I've always loved..it had me in tears...not just Jon's incredible singing but his talking voice also got straight to my heart!!!Once again this is my favorite version by far!! The whole cd is PRICELESS and anybody who don't get it don't know what their missing!!! No other versions match the feeling Jon puts into each and every word...He' SECOND TO NONE!!!

My New Favorite
This really is my new favorite Christmas CD. After the year we have been through it has not felt at all like Christmas for the first time ever. Here it is Christmas Eve eve and I only now had a chance to play it after it's arrival yesterday. Listening to this cd brought the Christmas spirit that I thought was lost for this year. The songs that I have only heard for the first time are absolutely beautiful. Jon has really outdone himself with this one. Phenomenal!!!! Thanks Jon for bringing me The Gift and the feeling of Christmas to me that was lost this year.

Magic moments!
From all my Christmas CDs "The Gift" and the "Labor of Love" are without a doubt the most beautiful ones Lovely selection of songs performed by the most beautiful voice of the universe to adorn another anniversary of our Master and Lord Jesus ... As drops of light your voice penetrates deep into our souls lending joy of living and encouraging the cultivation in the garden of our mind good and happy thoughts The quietness and smoothness of these songs enchant, inspire giving us hapiness and a deep sense of Peace...They are certainly fruit of your love to Jesus and to your fans.Heaven should be celebrating Jon Great job Jon! You as always. God Bless you Beth

Another Christmas Materpiece!
You are in for a real treat! All of the songs on this magnificent Christmas masterpiece are absolutely beautiful! I love it! For starters, you might find yourself toe tapping to the upbeat sounds of the song Merry Christmas Straight To You. Very cool song! :-) Christmas Dream is such a lovely song, and Jon sings it so very sweet. "Every Day Will Be Christmas Time, Every One Will Be Friends, Jesus Will Be Passing By...To Say..Christmas Will Never Ever End" I love it! Thank you Jon for selecting and singing songs that remind us what Christmas should all be about...not material gifts, but gifts of/from God. Another top favorite...well, it really IS my favorite "Angels Among Us" WOWOW!! What a powerful song (with a powerhouse voice singing it!) It will really touch your heart. You will feel the love and sincerity flowing out of Jon's beautiful heart as he sings to Yeshua, not only in this song, but in every song on this CD. He sings them with so much conviction. "I Believe There Are Angels Among Us, Sent Down To Us From Somewhere Up Above" Yes, I do believe it is YOU....my sweet friend Jon, that IS the Anointed Angel Among Us. Thank you for more of your precious gifts that I will always cherish. I am really enjoying them :-) God Bless You and your Family Jon! Merry Christmas To ALL of you. I love you with all my heart Teresa

A Different Kind Of Christmas Album!
What a fabulous collection of Christmas songs! This is the kind of album you want to play while you're sitting in front of a roaring fireplace on a snowy night, sipping hot chocolate or spiced cider. Some country, some old favorites, all terrific! Country Christmas and Angels Among Us were so pretty. I'd never heard those before. I loved all the songs! There were quite a few I'd never heard. What a treat! This is one that you can listen to for hours on end.

The Real Meaning of Christmas is the Gift
"The Gift" is another fantastic Christmas album from Mr. Jon. He makes such wonderful music to celebrate Christ our saviors birth. It seems that Christmas isn't complete without this beautiful music to listen to. If I could only use one word to describe this album I would say the word is "uplifting". Every song resonates with love and leaves the listener with hope. I love the story and Spanish or Mexican feel of the first song, "The Gift". "Christmas Every Day", "All Because Of Christmas", and "Country Christmas" are all incredible songs that bring true joy to my heart. I love "Christmas Dream". The sound and feel of that song is wonderful. The two Christmas classics "Christmas Song" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" are two of my favorites that I'm ecstatic over the fact that Mr. Jon recorded. They sound so marvelous with Mr. Jon's beautiful voice. "Christmas Means Heaven To Me" like so many of Mr. Jon's songs has a tremendous message. It's a really warm song with an exquisite delivery from Mr. Jon. I must admit that I've never been able to listen to "Merry Christmas Straight To You" sitting down. Every time I hear it I have to stand up with an acoustic guitar and strum along. It's a fun song that always puts a smile on my face and a dance in my heart. "Angels Among Us" is an extraordinary uplifting song that is the perfect way to wrap up this magnificent album. Jon Cotner's music, teachings, and friendship are a true gift. He uses his God-given talent and love to share happiness and joy to people. Most importantly he is always pointing us in the direction of Christ our Lord who is the true gift. Thank you Mr. Jon for being there on this journey with us. God Bless You

This CD is a wonderful gift indeed of the most beautiful Christmas songs sung by the most beautiful voice in the world! I love hearing Mr. Jon sing some of my favorite country Christmas songs like “Merry Christmas Strait to You” and “Angels Among Us”. All of these songs are so heartwarming and they capture the true spirit of Christmas. It’s a gift that I will treasure forever!
