Two sisters of mine and I love the song, “O Holy Night”. Earlier this week, one of the sisters and I were going back and forth with emails about which performer’s version of “O Holy Night” was the best version. Thanks to the email exchange, my sister introduced me to a new performer’s versions.
Point of clarification, the performer is not new. He has been around for years, and his voice is very well known on Broadway. However, though I recognized his voice, I had never before heard his version of “O Holy Night” until my sister shared it with me. (I’ll share his version later this month.)
This morning, I pulled together 25 different performers singing “O Holy Night”. While singing to myself I though, “Why not share these versions with the blogosphere? Share a little holiday cheer.”
So, starting today, I will post a different performer singing/playing his/her version of “O Holy Night”. Though the song’ is distinctively Christian, I hope you will take a moment and listen to it regardless of your faith (or lack thereof).
Side note: I am a huge fan of Neil Diamond. Huge fan. (HUGE) I laughed when I found he recorded “O Holy Night”. I am humored by the fact that a Jewish man is singing about the birth of someone the Jewish faith considers just another person. Cracks me up. I love irony. Moreover, I love people embracing things regardless of faith.
Today I share a comical version of “O Holy Night”. I hope you enjoy it. In the words of Cartmen, this song ‘kicks ass’!
