Aretha Franklin - Go Tell It On The Mount & O Christmas Tree

Good morning! I missed posting Christmas vids two nights in a row, so I owe it to y'all to give ya a double dose of great Christmas music. Not only are ya going to get a double dose, you will also get to hear a great songstress from Michigan. So without further adoo, here is the one, the only, magnificent, terrific, queen of soul, Detroit's own, Aretha Franklin.
In this video she is singing AND playing piano at the Lighting of the National Christmas Tree. If you don't have tears in your eyes after hearing her version of "Go tell it on the Mountain," "You are a cold one, Mr. Grinch." Don't stop at the first song. I have never heard "O Christmas Tree" sung and played the way she does it, but it is awesome, so soulful and passionate.

And by the way, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
