Mariah Carey Celebrates the Birth of Jesus with “O Holy Night”

O Holy Night

“O Holy Night” is a very well-known Christmas carol by Adolphe Adam to the French poem “Midnight, Christians.” It specifically reflects on the birth of Jesus and on humanity’s redemption.

The song also reflects on our salvation because our Lord and Savior has finally come to the Earth to save us all. Also, it allows us to muse on our misgivings and gives us hope that we will all be saved. Christmas is but a time for us to celebrate and enjoy with the people close to us. Likewise, it is the time for us to forgive our neighbors and the people who have wronged us. It is a time to get together and celebrate the birth of our Savior.

There have been numerous recordings of the famous Christmas song, including Nat King Cole, Mahalia Jackson, David Foster, and a few choice examples below.

Mariah Carey puts her angelic voice to the highest form of praise with her wonderful rendition. This is featured in her first Christmas album suitably entitled “Merry Christmas.” It sold 15 million copies worldwide and charted at No. 8 on the Billboard Holiday Digital Song Sales chart. It was released as a single in 1996 and 2000.

Listen to her beautiful rendition of a Christmas staple here.

Country artists also have their own countrified version of the old Christmas jingle.

And Brett Young has also a great rendition here:

Merry Christmas

“Merry Christmas” is the first Christmas album, and the fourth studio album, by Carey. It was released in 1994 and it features covers of very popular songs. The album contains a contemporary holiday theme and featured “authentic, gospel-flavored background vocals” which was indeed felt throughout her “O Holy Night” song. Furthermore, three singles were released from the album. This includes “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” This song went on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. It goes to show that we just really like Christmas!
