With Christmas just around the corner, the holiday spirit can be felt in the air.
For Carrie Underwood and her sweet son Isaiah Christmas came early and they wanted to treat fans with an enchanting rendition of one of the season’s favorite songs, The Little Drummer Boy.
This holiday classic, which has its roots in a traditional Czech melody that gained widespread recognition a decade after its initial release, has been covered by many big names in the world of music, including Bing Crosby.
However, Carrie duetting with her 5-year-old son brings a different type of emotion and breaths new life into the famous tune.
Carrie herself admits that this duet brought out “so many emotions.”
“I was in the booth with him, and trying to get him to access all his little 5-year-old emotions, which he can totally do on his own … When I heard the song back with his sweet little voice on it, I was laughing and crying,” Underwood shared with Today. “I’m so proud of him.”
Little Drummer Boy is part of Underwood’s new holiday album, My Gift, and Isaiah’s voice is just the perfect fit. His and his mom’s voice blend in a perfect harmony.
This is the singer’s first ever Christmas album and she’s proud of it. Underwood hopes that her fans will ‘need’ it as much as she needs it.
“I’m so proud of the music that we were able to create, but, also, we were able to create it this year, through all the obstacles,” Underwood shares. “We just want to bring some Christmas joy to people, so I’m super excited.”
In her HBO Special, My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood, the singer explained that having her young son be a part of the album was of great importance to her because “children are truly our greatest gift.”
The proud mom noted that Isaiah’s performance surpassed expectations because not only he did an excellent job but he also bears a striking resemblance to the boy depicted in the song’s narrative.
Underwood’s album is scheduled to be released on December 25. It consists of Christmas classics and original songs by the artist.
