In case you are new here, I am on day eighteen 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 eighteen.
Today’s version is personal. In May 2008, we had this performer come to our house for a private concert. The singer was doing a “Lawn Chairs and Living Room Tour”, and I took advantage of two good jobs and splurged to have him play at our house. Though he still does the tours in the Summer, it is no longer in our price range.
This guy is with a band, and he was in a movie. He has a solo career, and he is married to another solo artist. Though many may know some of his hits from his band, his name may not ring any bells. However, after you hear his version, I hope you will explore his music. In fact, he released a wonderful Christmas album, which he made with his wife. I’ll share links at the end of the post. (He and his band also created an awesome kid album, which is a favorite of my boys.)
Please sit back and enjoy this beautiful version of “O Holy Night” by Brian Vander Ark.
I strongly encourage you to listen to the beautiful song Brian sings with his wife, LuxLand. You can access their song “All I Want” by clicking here. This song is included on their Wonderland album. Brian is the lead singer for the band The Verve Pipe, and he was in the movie Rock Star.

Did you listen to the duet, Darla? Brian and Lux sing so well together. Their song is lovely. I hope you were able to hear it. Thanks for reading!
gorgeous version of this beautiful song and your personal story makes it even more meaningful to us… thank you!
I am glad you liked this version, MJ. I assume folks are expecting well-known versions of “O Holy Night” in the top-10, so this may seem random. Still, I find Brian’s version too beautiful not to share. Thank you for listening.
I really like this version and your ‘brush with greatness’ story. That’s too cool.
Yay! Makes me happy that you and others are enjoying Brian’s version, Lisa. I love it. Glad you liked the story, too. Thanks for visiting!
Not only do I like the song and the story, I also like the picture! You’re all looking so happy!
Thank you, Priya. We had a lovely day, and we were very happy. I still smile when I reflect back and recall the experience. I am glad you liked his performance.
What a great opportunity and experience, your own private concert! I like Brian’s rendition, too. Should I ask for your autograph??
You probably do want my autograph, Patti. I mean, I stood right next to Brian. (smile) Glad you liked his rendition. He has a great voice.
