Enjoy Holiday Songs from Your Favorite YouTube Musicians!
It’s Christmas Eve, and you’re (hopefully) settling in for a nice evening of relaxing, enjoying some much-needed time off and getting into the spirit of the holiday. To help with that last part, we’ve collected some Christmas music from some of the best musicians on YouTube, starting with Pentatonix singing like angels in their version of “The First Noel”:
Honestly, you could just turn up the speakers on your laptop, fire up Pentatonix’s whole Christmas playlist and you’re set for the evening.
If you’re more in the mood for a Christmas musical, the members of Walk Off the Earth star in their own holiday movie “It’s a Wonderful Mic,” a spoof of “It’s a Wonderful Life” where Gianni lets his ego get the better of him, wants to go solo and wishes the band never existed – only to get his wish and regret it and learn an important lesson about the spirit of the season and all that fun stuff.
Lindsey Stirling’s Christmas offering is a violin performance of “Hallelujah” written by Leonard Cohen and famously sung by Jeff Buckley – and I have to nitpick and point out that “Hallelujah” is about dying love, not religion – but her performance is stirring and beautiful, so I’ll let it slide.
If you haven’t seen Jon Cozart’s hysterical “Progressive Christmas Carols” from last year, please do yourself a favor:
And, fine, here’s “Christmas Jammies 2015” from the Holderness family. Are you feeling festive yet? HURRY UP AND FEEL FESTIVE.
