I am obsessed with Pentatonix and their holiday videos. I am such a classic holiday music lover – you know, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Elvis. I find most contemporary artists’ renditions of Christmas music ends up sounding kinda cheezy. But in comes Pentatonix: an incredible a capella group with a bit of beat box and a huge dose of creativity! When I watch the video of “Silent Night,” I totally teared up. Oh, and then I discovered “Mary, Did You Know?” and “The Little Drummer Boy.” Wow.
What is it about them?
To me they make you feel. When have you really “felt” when listening to a Christmas carol? They aren’t about performing, but more about giving a gift. Their songs are a gift.
Each of the members in the 5-person group know their brilliance… they are able to each use their strengths with their voice, personality, and creativity in a way that blends with the others in harmony to make the song so rich and full of aliveness.
If you have a few moments, take a PTX break and watch one of their videos on YouTube… Just click the video above.
