If you spent almost 30 years going to Catholic mass on Christmas Eve, you might start to believe some Christmas carols are destined to forever be old and musty, stale and stoic in every iteration.
But YouTube’s a cappella wunderkinds Pentatonix are all about flipping expectations on their head, so their new official music video for a reggae-infused “O Come, All Ye Faithful” is a delightful surprise. They’ve given a grooving beat to the traditional carol, brought to you by vocal percussionist Kevin Olusola and bassist Avi Kaplan, and the original trio tweaked the melody with a syncopation that transforms the staid hymn into a finger-snapper.
By the time they bring out the literal gospel choir to lift the song to its climax, you’ll have chills.
Now that’s a new Christmas classic.
