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.
Let’s start off with these cute birds.
Lindsey Sterling, is an amazing hip-hop violinist with some great moves. Listen to her perform Carol of the Bells, Hallelujah and Santa Baby.
Next is Pentatonix, an acappella group whose voices blend beautifully. Listen to their versions of Hallelujah, Little Drummer Boy, White Winter Hymnal and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
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, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and Silent Night.
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 and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
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.
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. And This Christmas.
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.
The Piano Guys make some great music. Check out Carol Of The Bells and O come, O come, Emmanuel.
Another great piece of Christmas music is the Christmas Canon by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Is it really Christmas without hearing Madonna sing Santa Baby?
And finally, if you think you have a great light display on your house, check out The Grinch – Christmas House Projection Show and Larsen’s Christmas Lights Show too.
What’s your favorite holiday video?
Have a Great Holiday Season! Party on!!!
