Day 16: Video: Kevin Sings A Christmas Carol!! (Really!)



Great line-up this week! I’m singing a Christmas Carol today, I think Leah is doing a post on Thursday for my birthday, we have a Christmas decorating video, and so much more!


Today, I am going to sing you a Christmas Carol as promised!

Yesterday, I gave you a choice of between three songs for me to sing. The song “O Holy Night” got the most votes!

After what happened two years ago when I sang a Christmas Carol at a party, Leah has strongly discouraged me from “embarrassing” myself. So I thought, What do I have to be embarrassed about? You all are supportive! You all are kind! You all are understanding! So what if I don’t have the voice of David Archuletta…ok…ewwwwwwww…the voice of Bono.

Below is a little music video that I put together for O Holy Night! Please promise me that you will watch the whole thing. Don’t worry, it’s not that long! It gets better towards the end.

I would like to officially dedicate this song to our Senior Pastor, Buddy Cremeans and the Joy Challenge. Not only does the Joy Challenge make me want to sing Christmas Carols, but it also has helped me focus on what is important this Christmas season. Also, I have learned that when seeking “joy”, you have to learn to be able to…laugh!

Let me know which of the following reactions was yours:

A. You sang along

B. You laughed at me (That’s mean)

C. You feel bad for Leah and my future kids

D. American Idol here we come!

Here is my rendition of O Holy Night…My favorite part is at 3 minutes and 20 seconds!

Day 15: Vote For Which Carol I Will Sing Tomorrow!!



Only 10 more days until Christmas and only 3 more ’til my birthday!! Avoid exit 15 at all costs if you are going shopping! It is a bottomless pit of traffic and bad drivers! Go to Crossgates Mall or Colonie Center! It will be worth it! I like exclamation points!



The third law of Christmas, according to Elf – The Movie, is “The Fastest Way to Spread Christmas Cheer Is By Singing Loud For All To Hear”. Well, I am going to spread so much stinkin’ Christmas cheer tomorrow, that you are going to flip out!

For some reason Leah is trying to discourage me. She is not being supportive at all. She used words like “embarrassment”, “foolish”, “blog boycotts”, “shun”, “get comfortable on the couch”, and “you couldn’t sing if your life depended on it”. Maybe Leah needs to sing a Christmas Carol and eat sugar plums. (Obviously Leah wasn’t that mean, but she does think that I should not do this!)

Either way, I AM GOING TO DO THIS!  Tomorrow! On this blog!

Based on my voice range, I narrowed my song choices down to three songs. It is a little “echoey” in my shower (yeah…that’s where I practice), but I think I can sing any of three songs.

I need your help! Vote for the song that I will sing tomorrow! Leave a comment, or for those of you that don’t like to do that, then email me by using the link to the right! I will sing whichever song gets the most votes.

Here are the choices:

1. Joy To The World

2. O Holy Night

3. Hark The Harold Angels Sing 

Everyone needs to vote today! Please don’t leave it up to everyone else! If you are reading this, then you need to vote! Then, come back tomorrow morning for a full dose of Christmas cheer!
