As I said yesterday, 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.
In an effort to capture the spirit of Christmas, and the holidays in general, I thought it would be fun to share with you a different version of “O Holy Night” every day through December 25th.Today’s version comes from an actor. Those familiar with his speaking voice may be unfamiliar with his singing voice. I assure you the difference between the two is distinct.
I’m afraid some of you will not recognize the name of the actor nor the television show for which he is best known. Here is a sample of his (once well known) television show. You don’t need to watch the full 3 minutes, just watch enough to get his voice. His name is Pyle – Gomer Pyle, and the show is Gomer Pyle USMC.
Did you recognize the actor? His name is Jim Nabors, and his singing voice is phenomenal. Now please, sit back and give this version of “O Holy Night” a listen. I’m certain you’ll enjoy Jim Nabors’ performance. See you tomorrow!
