A cappella singer Peter Hollens is back with yet another Christmas-themed music video. This time he’s seen alongside singer Jackie Evancho belting out John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).”
Their stunning version of the song, which is on Hollens’ new album, “A Hollens Family Christmas,” can be heard — and the music video can be viewed — below:
Hollens’ other music videos this Christmas season have been for “Carol of the Bells,” “Amazing Grace” and “What Child Is This?” Additional songs included on “A Hollens Family Christmas” are: “Little Drummer Boy” and “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” among others.
As previously reported, Hollens told Faithwire last week that the album was essentially “entirely crowdsourced,” as fans have made requests over the past few years for the songs they wanted him to perform.
“It is kind of a passion project,” Hollens said, noting that some of the songs were requested thousands of times. “I’ve been asking people what they wanted me to do for over three years now … it came together really organically.”
Hollens also spoke about why he tends to like performing Christmas music, saying these traditional songs help “tap into the magic” people traditionally felt during the holiday season when they were young “before the realities of the world set in.”
“I hope people take away a little piece of the magic of this season that (they) had when you were young,” he said.
