A Christmas Treasure

I have often said that Luciano Pavarotti had the absolute best voice in all of music in modern times. But running a close second is a 20th century crooner who spent 60 years in the music business and sold well over 100 million records for RCA--Perry Como.

Como sang all kinds of music, and he did them all equally well. He could also sing a crescendo with the best of the them, full voice, and then switch to a soft, light, head-tone with equal ease. His voice was absolutely amazing.

For Christmas, I went back and dug up this rendition of Como's O Holy Night from 1969 at Hollywood Palace.  The song has become one of the most beloved Christmas songs throughout the world, and Como sings it as no other.

May God bless you richly during this special time of the year.
