Carrie Underwood and John Legend are feeling the holiday spirit!
The singers appear together in the music video for “Hallelujah,” an original song from Underwood’s Christmas album, “My Gift.”
In the video, which debuted on Facebook Watch on Thursday, Legend and Underwood harmonize in an atmospheric winter wonderland, surrounded by doves and gently falling snow. The “Cry Pretty” singer, 37, stands at a grand piano in a sparkling silver dress while Legend sings and plays.
“My Gift” is Underwood’s first full-length Christmas album, and it contains a mix of original songs and covers of classics like “O Come, All Ye Faithful” and “Silent Night.”
Legend, 41, is not the only guest artist on the album. Underwood’s cover of “The Little Drummer Boy” features sweet vocals from her 5-year-old son, Isaiah.
“Whenever I think about that song, I picture (Isaiah's) face and personality — that is so him,” the country singer told TODAY in September. “He would be the kid that would make you something and bring it to you, because that’s what he had to give you. That’s the whole sentiment behind ‘Little Drummer Boy.’ (He) is bringing what he has to Jesus, which is why I wanted to name my album 'My Gift,' because I feel like the gift of music is such a blessing in my life. I really want to give that back to Jesus.”
She also joked that she felt a little bit like a stage mom when Isaiah joined her in the studio.
“I was in the booth with him and trying to get him to access all of his little 5-year-old emotions, which he can totally do on his own. ... He was just so expressive!” she said. “When I heard the song back, with his sweet little voice on it, I was laughing and crying and just so many emotions.”
“Now more than ever, we all need to focus on what Christmas is about, rely more on our family,” she said. “Even though it has been a tough year, sometimes I feel like the greatest realizations can come in the worst times, or in the most stressful times, and it makes you more thankful for the things you do have.”
