Ultimate Christmas Playlist Day 20: Kurt Elling, ‘This Christmas’

the beautiful day

What’s Christmas without classic music? This year we’re celebrating the holidays by letting our readers curate the Ultimate Christmas Playlist. Each day we’ll add one new song to our Spotify playlist on our way to Christmas Day. And I know you wanna add your favorite song, right?

Leave your selections on the comments of this post, at our Soul In Stereo Cypher Facebook page, hit me up on Twitter @etbowser, or email us at soulinstereoblog@gmail.com. Simply name your song and give us a sentence or so telling us why you love it. 

Kira switches things up with a different interpretation of your favorite song:

“This is hard because I have 96 songs on my Spotify Christmas playlist. But one of my favorites is of course “This Christmas” by Donny Hathaway. I like to hear fresh renditions of classics but most remakes of “This Christmas” are pretty horrible or just boring. One exception for me is jazz singer Kurt Elling’s version. I recommend this version if you’re looking for a good cover of the song that won’t make Donny Hathaway roll over in his grave.”
