Soulful Holiday Spirit: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by @BrandynBurnette has a laid back #Fugees vibe

BRANDYN BURNETTE, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”

It is indeed one of my favourite Christmas songs, but Brandyn Burnette’s spin on “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” deserves to be heard because of its chill, soulful vibe that would definitely make Lauryn Hill and Fugees fans proud.  Brandyn reaches into that old-soul bluesy R&B style that surfaces in his songs now and again to bring a contemporary, content and, holiday-happy ambiance to this classic.  The music is minimal and like the best renditions of “Merry Little” it’s all about the vocal and the style.  Add it to your holiday Spotify playlist at the link above.

Collaborations are often amazing as they can bring out the best in both talents.  And two that I didn’t know before 2016 dazzle with their updating of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”.  Germany’s Saxity of course has had many original, cover, and remix zingers this year including the most recent “Brothers”.  And Georgia’s Victor Perry graces us with his beautiful voice again just after his gorgeous cover of Everything But The Girl’s “Missing”.  Together, their rendition of this classic is the perfect holiday song to set the tone for your party and get people into a great mood.  It’s an uptempo version packaged with everything you might want – guitar, sax, rhythm and assured vocal – how can you go wrong?  You can’t – go and download it for free at the link above 🙂
