In case you are new here, I am on day seventeen 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”.
We are down to the final ten, folks. Welcome to version number seventeen.
First, I want to tell you, as I listen to the remaining list of versions, I find myself becoming more and more excited. There is not a bad version in this bunch. Each performance is incredibly moving, at least to me. I hope you enjoy these next few days.
Okay, here we go…
My age, the age of my parents and the age of my siblings make me old school. I had the privilege of being exposed to countless kinds of music, different singers, etc. I’ve enjoyed sharing different versions of “O Holy Night” with you, in part, because it helps me relive memories of my younger years. For instance, today’s performance may appear as random to many, but it reminds me of nights spent watching Hee Haw.
Hailing from Texas, Larry and his brothers were popular in the seventies and eighties. But – make no mistake, they are still around and still able to belt out beautiful songs. Perhaps, after hearing today’s version, you’ll be inspired to get to know them (again).
Please enjoy “O Holy Night” by The Gatlin Brothers.
