Merry Christmas Eve, Everybody!!! Welcome back to the countdown.
Pretty tree found on Pinterest (original source unknown).
For today’s song I am sharing three versions with you because I think they are all too beautiful for words. The first version is from an R&B/Soul Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legend who still performs (this year he recorded his own version of the 1975 Freddy Fender country classic “Before The Next Teardrop Falls”) but calls the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church home for his weekly sermons.
The second version is by an Italian tenor who has been called the greatest singer in the world by record producer David Foster, and has a voice that makes me swoon. The third is by a Puerto Rican singer & composer who has sung his own songs as well as recorded classic interpretations of other musician’s work. I did not hear his version of this Christmas classic until this year and I fell head over heels in love with it.
Al Green: “Silent Night” (1983).
Andrea Bocelli: “Silent Night” (2009).
Jose Feliciano: “Silent Night” (1970).
I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you 🙂
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
Until next time, happy listening!!!
