Merry Christmas to you lyric video

This song is definitely the one that I remember him singing. The Christmas Song, also called Merry Christmas to You, in this video with the lyrics that you may want to share with elementary students. There’s also a wonderful new animated version that can be seen on Facebook Watch.

Deck the Halls

December 28, 2020

This clip was created by a former student, Aaron Robinson, who is a composer, conductor, musician & author. He is a concert pianist and as a teenager was mesmerized by the ragtime music of Glenn Jenks. He taught himself the “Maple Leaf Rag”; in this video you’ll hear Aaron playing a ragtime version of Deck the Halls. Not only is Aaron an amazing musician but he is also kind, gentle and very funny (as a middle schooler and as an adult)!

739,539 Lights

The Piano Guys

A piano, a cello, and 739,539 Christmas lights. Perhaps a perfect setting for a mashup of two of the most well known and beloved Christmas carols, “Let it Snow” and “Winter Wonderland.” For this tune we triple-channeled the stylistic vibe of legends Michael Bublé, Sara Bareilles, and the Doobie Brothers! We stitched them together so tightly that we hope it feels like being wrapped in a patchwork blanket of both carols, these artists, and The Piano Guys throughout every second of the song. Add the visual splendor of an inordinate amount of synchronized lights filmed in below-freezing temperatures and it’s instant Christmas spirit!

Killard House Choir

10-year-old Kaylee Rogers, who has autism and ADHD, leads the Killard House School Choir in the singing of “Hallelujah”. This beautiful music video was recorded at the Killard House School in Donaghadee in Northern Ireland.
