I had the phenomenal privilege of attending a live concert of For King and Country earlier this year, and I still can’t stop talking about how amazing it was! It was the first time I had ever attended one of their concerts, and it was also the first time I had ever attended a concert VIP, so all in all it was a brand new experience for me. I did not use to be a fan of the song The Drummer Boy until I heard this arrangement by For King and Country. They do an amazing rendition of it. and it is on my list of top five favorites of their songs. It is a very unique tune, and they added their own touch of pop to it. Now whenever I hear any other arrangement of The Drummer Boy, I think it sounds puney!
This Christmas, I have probably listened to this song at least once every day. I LOVE it! I do not know why this year it has really stuck out to me, but I just can’t seem to get enough of it!
As I said in my review of Mosaic, Amy Grant is my childhood! Christmas in my house is not Christmas until Amy Grant’s voice is playing on the radio. For as long as I can remember, every Black Friday, we would turn on Amy Grant, pull out all the Christmas decorations, and decorate the tree. Amy’s voice just brings back so many good memories! I love all of her songs, but I would have to say that this one might be my favorite!
Francesca Battestelli is another newer singer to me as I just started listening to her this year. However, I have been making up for all the years I have missed, by listening to her almost non-stop! I recently purchased her Christmas album, and this is my favorite song off it! I do not usually like The Christmas Song because–in my opinion–it is slow and boring. However, Francesca’s rendition of it is anything but slow! She adds her own touch to the song and adds some spark and life to it.
I don’t know what else to say about this song other than it comes into a close tie with The Drummer Boy!
I have to admit that usually I am not a fan of Toby Mac. I strongly dislike rap, and he seems to use it a lot. However, Christmas this Year is one of the exceptional songs I like. I am on the kids’ worship team at Calvary Chapel, and this is one of the songs we dance to. I have to say that it might be my favorite. It is a lot of fun to move and dance to!
I would have to say that this is one of–if not THE–most powerful Christmas song I have ever heard. The words are just so true, and could not have been said better. It is also so thought-provoking. I could not reccomend it more!
Pentatonix is an extremely talented group! What they do with their voices is beyond me. Where Are You Christmas is already one of my favorite songs, but I think they present it better than any other singers.
