"Charlotte is not as hot as the public thinks that she is. Her voice is being pushed to much. Look at her jaw...IT QUIVERS!!!! That is the sign of a pushed voice! If a voice is pushed enough, it can bo lost. Charlotte, get a new voice teacher, before it's to late!!!!"
A Dull Journey

"I have always wanted to visit the Holy Lands. However, if I do, this Video is a reminder not to take Miss Church along. She provides no more than sterile renditions of religious favorites, while going from place to place with her as the focal point of attention. I would have been much more pleased with her providing a narration of a video of these lands; while being out of sight and refraining from singing. Her voice simply doesn't provide the warmth and emotion necessary to move an individual through such an experience. This video may suffice for an elementary school crowd, but doesn't do it for me."
Comfort and Joy!

""Charlotte Church in the Holy Land" is so beautiful that it almost defies description. Every track on this DVD, from the very child like "When a Child is Born" to the almost overwhelming power she brings to "O Holy Night" is a world class performance. The setting of this concert - the Dormiton abbey- the resting place of the virgin Mary- is breathtaking, and seems to lend a quality to Charlotte's voice which is unmatched, even on her Christmas CD release. Charlotte is beautiful, and preternaturally gifted. But this performance is more than just that. She imparts a devotional quality to this material that is obviously unforced. Yet, this is only fitting - she has already brought comfort and joy to millions of people."

"Another wonderful presentation by Ms. Church. The quality of the sound and imagery is stunning. Her presentation is better than the previous performance. Her ability to effortlessly sing the high notes like "an angel" is very remarkable. Highly recommended for anyone who appreciates fine music."
