About Grown-Up Christmas List
“Grown-Up Christmas List” (sometimes titled “My Grown-Up Christmas List”) is a Christmas song composed by David Foster (music) and Linda Thompson-Jenner (y2kcenter.org). It was originally recorded by Foster, with Natalie Cole on vocals, for his 1990 non-holiday album River of Love and a similar second version on his 1993 holiday album The Christmas Album. Though it was also released as a single, the song was not a hit upon its first appearance. In 1992, Amy Grant recorded a version for her second Christmas album, Home for Christmas. Grant”s version featured an additional verse that Grant penned herself. Her record label at the time, A&M Records, promoted the song as the second single from the album, and it received substantial radio airplay.
