While WillCollection doesn’t like Christmas covers, I have always had a fondness for well-done, new renditions of classic tracks because an artist that can brings something new to an old track is worth getting know. That’s why I was really happy to stumble upon this track by Tyrus Carter.
This isn’t exactly the Nat “King” Cole The Christmas Song; it’s actually a mash-up of that and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. The fusion of the two songs was, initially, a little jarring but you find that they flow together well. Carter’s vocals are truly the selling point of the track as he has pretty solid vocal control and was smart enough to use a toned down, piano-based production so that his adlibs added the color.
This is a nice update for a Christmas classic that is perfect for the background of your upcoming Christmas party.
