Bing Crosby has given us a lot of amazing songs. “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” is one of them. This beautiful song was recorded by Crosby in 1943. It reflects the wish of a soldier to be back home for Christmas. It was a big success, especially since it was released around World War II. Many years have passed since then, but this song still remains one of the most beloved during Christmas.
Many people have shared their version of the song on the internet. Country a cappella band, Home Free, recently released their new Christmas cover. Their spin on this classic just might bring you to tears, especially as you watch the video! The vocals are incredible as always and the video also shows some families reuniting for the festive season. This is really moving to watch!
Many of the families in the video are welcoming a son or daughter who has been stationed overseas with the military back home for Christmas. They are greeted with hugs and tears of joy, and several of them are even knocked over and licked all over by the family pet. It’s very touching to watch, especially the two young children hugging their father. They are not letting go of him any time soon.
Home Free really hit a home run with their a cappella version of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and the home videos that go with it. If this doesn’t put you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will.
