It's a [Brooke] White Christmas this year, thanks to one of the coolest contestants ever to grace the "American Idol" stage, Brooke White.

The Season 7 songstress's seasonal CD (titled White Christmas, of course) features her putting her own quirky spin on some traditional holiday fare, including "Silent Night," "O Come All Ye Faithful," Wham!'s "Last Christmas," and Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime." But when Brooke recently stopped by Yahoo Music, she brought some cheer to our office by playing a couple of her own holiday originals, soon to be considered modern classics in their own right.

Check out her performances of "California Christmas" and "Christmas Card" below, and if you like what you hear, buy White Christmas on iTunes, too!

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
