    Surprised someone hasn't already started one.

    I'll kick it off with one of my all time favorite Christmas songs in a version I haven't heard before. Hope you all like it.

    By the way and for anyone not familiar with the new board. If you find a YouTube Christmas video you like simply copy the link and then click on the Media icon above to the right of the smiley face in the posting space and paste your link in there.

    I mostly just sit back and read Too Hot but I love music and especially good Christmas music. O Holy Night is an extremely difficult song to sing and very few vocalists can do it well. Sandi Patty can!!!!

    Two different styles and moods here--one is exceptionally serious with one of the most amazing voices EVER. Andrea Bocelli....makes goosebumps when you hear him belt this one out, especially when he ends it in English. Just amazing.

    The other--typical Sinatra.
