In the tapestry of holiday traditions, each family weaves its unique thread of cherished Christmas favorites.
Mariah Carey and Wham! may have been vetoed in my household for the sake of classic tunes, fostering a deep affection for timeless melodies that evoke nostalgic memories.
Recently, out heart swelled with emotion upon discovering Carrie Underwood’s enchanting rendition of “The Little Drummer Boy”.
Widely acknowledged as a Christmas classic, the song, attributed to Katherine K. Davis in 1941, draws inspiration from a traditional Czech hymn.
Over the years, diverse artists such as Bing Crosby, Johnny Cash, and even Justin Bieber have lent their voices to this perennial holiday anthem.
In 2020, Carrie Underwood, a revered figure in country music, delighted fans with a Christmas album. Amidst a fusion of original compositions and beloved classics, the eleventh track, “The Little Drummer Boy”, shone brightly.
What made it truly exceptional was Carrie’s heartwarming duet with her then-5-year-old son, Isaiah, who delivered the familiar vocals with remarkable finesse.
