December 14th – Performance No. 14

In case you are new here, I am on day fourteen 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 fourteen.

I admit, the performances I am sharing today and tomorrow are probably my least favorite. Yes, I am going back on what I said earlier last week, with regards to Faith Hill.

As a singer, I really do like this guy. When I listen to him sing, I always get a real sense he is singing from his heart. Plus, he is firm in his country roots, respecting the genre even when Top 40 beacons. Still, as I listen to this performance I am a little disappointed. I hope you disagree.

Without further ado (and negativity), I present Vince Gill’s performance of “O Holy Night”.

  1. Lenore is it really your least favorite! May be i am going to differ on this one.
    And one more question, i just forgot, on which date you are going to post that 26th version of this song?

    1. There is nothing wrong with disagreeing, Arindam. Likes and dislikes are unique for everyone.
      In other news, there will be no Dec. 26th performance. This fun ends on the 25th.

  2. Dude. I haven’t heard Vince Gill in forever! I almost forgot he existed!

    Do we get to vote at the end on our favorite version? Please, we need a winner!

    1. Hahahahaha! Yep, he exists and is still alive, even!
      If you want to vote for the favorite – have at it. I’d love to find out which one was favored by all who stopped by to listen.

    1. Lisa, “Let There Be Peace” makes me cry. I have a version where his daughter sings with him. Ugh. Tearjerker. Channeling Ferris Beuller, “He’s a righteous dude.”

  3. I love Vince Gill’s voice, and his heart. There are probably a couple of artists I like better on this song, John Berry does a great job of it. (imo)

    1. Funny you should mention, John Berry. I graduated from UGA in Athens, GA. John Berry – I believe – got his start in Athens. I head him play several times at local bars. I agree with you, his version of “O Holy Night” is better than this version by Vince. Still, Vince has heart and soul.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
