December 9th – Performance No. 9

Standard

In case you are new here, I am on day nine of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”. For those of you who are not new, please pardon my repetitive opening throughout the course of these 25 days.

Two of my sisters and I love the song “O Holy Night”. After a series of emails with one of my sisters, I came up with the idea of sharing different versions/performances of the song “O Holy Night”.

Welcome to version number nine.

As the days pass, I am having a harder time choosing which performance of “O Holy Night” to share with you. Today, I am sharing one of the two least favorites on this list of favorites.

Please don’t get me wrong, the performer does a wonderful job singing the song. She successfully gives me chills when she reaches the high point, even if she is singing different words. But, when she became popular in a genre different from where she started, she also became a little too ‘Top 40’ for me. (Admit it, the song ‘This Kiss’ was (way) overplayed.)

Nonetheless, she is still on my list of favorites. With that, I present Faith Hill’s performance of “O Holy Night”.

    • Your ‘I can hear’ made me flashback to the movie “Pete’s Dragon” and Red Skelton. Love that movie.
      Sure, when you account for the whole ‘holding a tune and staying on key’, I guess it is pretty good. (smile) In all seriousness, Faith Hill has a beautiful voice, regardless of the song. Glad you can hear again, Lisa!

    • Shoot – my thumb went and hit send on that comment before I was done! Picking up where I left off …

      … and I am either dehydrated and there are no more tears from the more recent versions or my dislike of Faith Hill is preventing me from getting emotional. Her version is beautiful – thanks for including it – but she has the personality of a wet rag so I can’t imagine her putting any genuine emotion into it. Hrrrrumph.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
