I don’t usually include 2 Christmas songs from the same performer (unless they are part of the 1 post) in the same year, but this is just too good to keep until next year.
Brooke Falls is a young singer and actor from the USA. She started performing at 9 years of age and has appeared in a number of musical theatre productions. In 2012 she started focusing on her singing, after winning the Grand Prize in The Rising Stars singing competition.
Carol of the Bells was originally a Ukrainian song, Shchedryk (The Generous One), based on a traditional chant, English lyrics were published in 1936 and was first recorded by the Robert Shaw Chorale in 1946. It tells how bells ring out bringing cheer to those who hear them at Christmas, with a tune that is reminiscent of a peel of bells. This is an incredible arrangement for 4 voices without accompaniment that Brooke sings on her own, with Brady Bunch style graphics. The singing is almost perfectly bell-like in clarity with perfect harmonies. Brooke‘s expressive eyes are not as easy to see in this video as they usually are but that loss is countered by the delightful way that she interacts with herself from the different boxes.
You can follow Brooke on her Official Website, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, on LinkedIn, and on her YouTube channel. You can buy her music on iTunes.
