Kelly Clarkson’s new song “Christmas Eve” is an instant Christmas classic.
Mariah Carey released a holiday tune today. It’s titled “The Star,” a delicate religious ballad. I was pretty convinced Mariah would keep her Christmas crown, but Kelly Clarkson just came in and SNATCHED it with “Christmas Eve.”
Kelly’s soulful song is grand and uplifting. “I’m hearing sleigh bells / I’m seeing snow,” she sings over bells and a stomping beat. “I waited all year baby just to see those Reigndeer / Watch them as they go.” I’m SHOOK.
It’s the kind of track that’ll cheer up Mr. Grinch, bring families together and end war. Who can be angry after hearing this?
And if that didn’t get you into the holiday spirit (YOU’RE A MONSTER), listen to Kelly’s flawless 2013 holiday record, Wrapped In Red.
