* Another album by Kenny G: Faith a Holiday Album (1999) (3x Platinum)
* 3 more Elvis Presley’s albums went 3x Platinum respectively
* Mannheim Steamroller had another question album: Christmas Extraordinaire which went 3x Platinum as well
This would total to have Elvis Presley still as the highest selling Christmas artist at a little shy of 2x Diamond – or 20 million albums sold!
Mannheim Steamroller would move up as second highest selling with 15 million albums sold collectively (Diamond + 5x Platinum)!
And Kenny G In 3rd with 12 million!
* By the way, these are some amazing albums I grew up listening to (actually not knowing that they were Christmas albums) that had a major positive impact on my life and I’d highly encourage everyone to check them out!
– George Winston: December (1982) (3x Platinum)
– Boys II Men: Christmas interpretations (1993) (2x Platinum)
Peace and Merry Christmas to All…
