As a testament to its everlasting popularity over the ages, the classic Christmas carol, “The Little Drummer Boy”, has been recorded by countless artists and choirs.
But surely none have delivered such a breath-taking rendition as Jackie Evancho, when she teamed up with the superb Italian vocalists Il Volo, on The Today Show.
The classical music singer, Jackie Evancho, collaborated with the classical power group, Il Volo, to bring their inspiring version of “The Little Drummer Boy” to us, and the pure beauty of their harmonies, led by the lilting classical voice of Evancho, has left us all begging for an encore!
The Christmas carol was written by an American composer and teacher, Katherine Kennicott Davis. A group called The Trapp Family sang it soon after its release, but the tune didn’t gain its huge popularity until Harry Simeone performed his version.
Since its release and Simeone’s rendition, countless artists have performed the Christmas carol. But surely nothing can compare to Jackie Evancho and Il Volo’s rendition! Their stunning performance brings tears to the eye.
Nobody can help but get a little teary-eyed after seeing their heart-stopping rendition of this Christmas favorite. Treat yourself to a viewing of their powerful performance of “The Little Drummer Boy”, and be sure to have your box of tissues ready!
