1997 Peabo Bryson – Peace On Earth

Peace On Earth is the seventeenth studio album by American singer Peabo Bryson. It was released by Angel Records on November 4, 1997 in the United States. Produced by Canadian musician Robbie Buchanan, it marked Bryson’s first Christmas album. The standard edition of Peace on Earth consists of ten tracks, featuring the original song “Born on Christmas Day” and nine cover versions of Christmas standards and carols, two of which are duets featuring recording artists Sandi Patti and Roberta Flack. Upon release, Peace on Earth failed to chart, though Christmas with You, a 2005 reissue, released by Time Life, peaked at number 10 on the US Top Holiday Albums chart in 2006
