Who Would Imagine a King
In the season of the birth of Christ, Whitney Houston gives us a song about the birth of Jesus in a manger in her hit “Who Would Imagine a King.” Houston brings words to life directly from the scripture. It captures the Nativity, in a dream-like vibe that certainly makes the birth of Christ feel like a miracle on Earth. Her subtle vibratos throughout the song made it feel more special, as it vividly narrates the birth of Christ.
“Who Would Imagine a King” is a Christmas song that Mervin Warren and Hallerin Hill wrote. Originally, Houston recorded it for the soundtrack to the 1996 film “The Preacher’s Wife.” There had been two other versions of this, sung by Lotta Engberg and Katherine McPhee.
