Happy Holidaze! Seven Swans A Singing Have Nothing On Charles Bradley’s “Amazing Grace”

by (@zaragolden)

Happy Holidaze! In lieu of the traditional advent calender stocked with stale chocolates or tiny toys, VH1, MTV and CMT are gearing up and counting down the days to Christmas with 12 Holidaze worth of cheer. Each day until the 25th, we will unveil a new holiday-themed performance from some of your favorite artists. Already we’ve enjoyed Paloma Faith‘s retro “Santa Baby,” Austin Mahone’s “Jingle Bells;” Gavin DeGraw‘s blustery “O Holy Night,” and The Wanted‘s puppy-aided “White Christmas”; and today on this seventh day of Holidaze, VH1 has gifted unto you Charles Bradely‘s from-the-gut turn of “Amazing Grace.”

Seven swans a singing have nothing on the Screaming Eagle of Soul. Bradely’s inimitable voice “Amazing Grace” lends itself nicely to the 18th century hymn, and you may think you’ve heard all the possible covers before, but we assure that this one will rattle any and all bedecked halls. Really, this is special.

Seven down, five more days of videos to enjoy. Happy Holidaze!
