Christmas is a special time of year – the stores are full of eager shoppers searching for that “perfect” gift, kitchens everywhere are filled with the sweet scent of gingerbread and apple pie, twinkly lights and snowmen decorate the streets, and our hearts seem to be just a BIT more full. And oh, the holiday music! The joy-filled, up-lifting, heart-warming Christmas caroling is what some of us love most of all.
There isn’t a voice out there more heavenly than that of Susan Boyle – who first gained her stardom after appearing on the popular reality show, Britain’s Got Talent. The passion with which she sings and the “heart” that she puts into the lyrics make her music truly mesmerizing.
The young faces in the choir behind her, the dim lighting and white Christmas lights, and of course Susan’s angelic voice make this ‘O Holy Night’ performance particularly moving. In the beginning, Susan’s singing is soft and low – beautifully accented by the quiet voices of the children behind her. But with each line, the song gains power, and passion, and volume. This lovely, soul-moving rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ is certain to touch your heart, and fill you with holiday joy!
