In case you are new here, I am on day 25 of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”.
Day 25 of 25. We are at the end of this book, so to speak.
What book? Wait. Are you new here?
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 the grand finale – numero veinte y cinco.
Did I save the best for last? Well, if you are asking me, then my answer is ‘yes’. However, I realize, you may disagree. I’m quite okay with that possibility.
This gentleman is the grand finale, in part, because this guy’s version is the one my sister introduced to me. Frankly, these past 24 days were built around him. As I listen to his version, while typing, I am moved. Every time I listen to his version, I am moved.
One of my favorite things about his performance is the fact that he takes you there – your emotion, your spirit, your soul – he takes all of you to that moment, and then – then he places you gently back down, with a smile on your face. He finishes what he starts, and I love it.
His voice is known all over Broadway. I am certain I could mention one play, and his name would pop into your head immediately. Well, assuming you follow Broadway musicals. Let’s try it, shall we? “Phantom of the Opera” Do you know of whom I am referring?
I’ll reveal his name in a moment.
Merry Christmas, readers. If you do not celebrate Christmas, happy 5th day of Hanukkah. If you celebrate neither Christmas nor Hanukkah, super Sunday salutations to you! Regardless of your faith, if you joined me on this journey, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed it. I hope the remaining days of December treat you well. Here’s to a wonderful 2012 awaiting all of us.
Now, let the finale begin … Please enjoy Michael Crawford’s version of “O Holy Night”.
Blessings, my Blogosphere Buddies.
