Martina McBride Belts Out ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ at ‘CMA Country Christmas’
No one sings Christmas songs like Martina McBride, according to ‘CMA Country Christmas’ host Jennifer Nettles. McBride proved the Sugarland singer right with a classy performance of the traditional hymn ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ during the special.
McBride’s killer voice was paired with a harp during a super slow rendition of the song. Later, background singers and an orchestra stepped in to carry the tune to its climax as the singer continued belting out the song, nailing every note as always.
McBride has performed ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ many times before, including on the re-release of her 1998 holiday album ‘White Christmas.’ The singer, who is currently finishing up her intimate Joy of Christmas Tour, had planned to release a new holiday album this year, but had to postpone the idea when time ran out.
Viewers also got a glimpse into a typical McBride family Christmas with a short clip of Martina at home with her three girls, Emma, Ava and Delaney. McBride is going to have some difficult pet-related decisions to make, because Ava said she wants a puppy for Christmas, but Emma is requesting a snake, specifically because her mom is freaked out by the idea. We don’t blame her!
