Following are some of my favorite Holiday music videos. You’ll find the entire spectrum from traditional to shall we say, unique. I hope you enjoy them.
There are two new performers this year whose music really brightens up my Holidays.
The first is Lindsey Sterling, an amazing hip-hop violinist with some great moves. Listen to her perform Celtic Carol, What Child Is This and Silent Night.
The other performer is Pentatonix, an acappella group whose voices blend beautifully. List to their versions of Carol Of The Bells and That’s Christmas To Me.
I’ve always been a big fan of Jewel’s music and poetry, and was fortunate enough to see her in concert once. Listen to her amazing voice as she sings Ave Maria.
There’s always someone who thinks Christmas us just a bunch of Bah Humbug. This video is for you. I hope you enjoy Carol of the Old Ones.
My favorite irreverent Christmas song is The 12 Pains Of Christmas. Have a listen.
Karen Carpenter was an amazing singer, and left us all far too soon. Listen to Merry Christmas Darling by The Carpenters.
I’ve always liked Gloria Estefan’s voice and music. I was even a member of the Press when she dedicated her statue to the Wax Museum in Buena Park, California. I have some great pictures of that event too.
Christmas is more than presents and parties. It’s about reaching out to those in need, righting the wrongs in the world and putting the Christmas Spirit in all we do, all year long. In this video you’ll see wrongs that need to be righted, and successes that have been achieved. We can all do something, big or small, to help others. Go out and help others. Hear Silent Night by Gloria Estefan.
Many years ago there was a great Christmas special called “A Claymation Christmas.” It shows the amazing things that can be done with this form of animation. I hope you enjoy these videos, and remember, it’s all done with clay. Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer and Joy To The World.
People aren’t the only ones who enjoy the Holiday Season. Animals get into the spirit of Christmas too, look here.
