Set to scenes from The Nativity Story… Absolutely beautifully done!!! Sung by Josh Groban.
…a Christmas classic…
Bing Crosby had an annual Christmas TV special; this was recorded on 11 Sept. 1977 for the show which would be broadcast that year: ‘Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas.’
From wiki: The pair exchanged dialogue about what they do for Christmas before singing “Little Drummer Boy” with a new counterpoint with original lyrics written for the special, “Peace on Earth.”
Crosby died on October 14, just over a month after recording the special. In the U.S., the show aired on 30 November 1977 on CBS.
Celine Dion – brings a very strong and meaningful message in her “So This is Christmas”. Christ came so that everyone should have peace and joy – so that we might love our neighbors; whether black, white, yellow or red… and whether you are Christian, Muslim, Jew or atheist – Whatever your nationality or origin – From my home to yours… I offer you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year……
Tonight is Christmas Eve. A time for family and friends to unite in peace, love and harmony. A time when the whole of the world can come together with a song of peace and fellowship. So, whether you are Christian, Catholic, Jew or Muslim this night celebrates you through the Love of Jesus Christ. For your beliefs, or your non-beliefs, God still loves you, He still sent His Son to die for you…. With the birth of Christ He brought you a Silent Night for which to reflect upon your own life, your family, your friends. And, regardless of your belief it is a Holy Night…. So, I ask the world, please, for this Night won’t you set aside your differences; set down your weapons, take this One Night, this Holy Night and share with others all that’s good in family, friends and yes, those who share a difference from you……..
So this Night, this Holy Night, I leave all my brothers and sisters throughout the whole of the world in peace and love. May we all be brought closer to the Love and Peace of Christ Jesus. Here are two songs, by Jackie Evancho, I wish sharing this Night of Holy Nights through her renditions of:
Silent Night Holy Night
Thank you for listening and may the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you, and yours, in Peace and Love!!!
