10. Josh Groban and Brian McKnight/Angels We Have Heard on High
This is quite a great Christmas carol that is sung beautifully by Josh Groban and Brian McKnight. “The words of the song are based on a traditional French carol known as Les Anges dans nos Campagnes (literally, The Angels in our Countryside). Its most common English version was translated in 1862 by James Chadwick.
9. Billy Porter and Vanessa Williams/Joy To The World
“Joy to the World” is one of the best-known and best-loved of Christmas carols. It contains a message of joy and love replacing sin and sorrow. It may also be interpreted to be about life after the second coming of Christ. The hymn is significant for its widespread use throughout Christian denominations and for the musical stature of the people who created it.
This is a great Christmas carol everyone can sing along to, and the duet by Billy Porter and Vanessa Williams is amazing.
