Featuring the joyful spiritual blend of two of music’s most celebrated voices, the new holiday original is featured on Underwood’s first Christmas album, My Gift, and it’s video channels a sense of serenity. Full of inclusive, big-thinking metaphors, it finds Underwood and Legend coming in out of the cold to make a new start. With Underwood dressed in white and Legend in black, they light a literal fire in an old church as they sing in gorgeous harmony, bringing warmth to a world that seems stuck in perpetual winter.

“Let the world stand still, the church bells ring / Silent night as the angels sing / Hallelujah, Hallelujah / Let the magic warm the moonlit air / Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere / Hallelujah, Hallelujah,” the pair sing in uplifting harmony.
“Hallelujah” was released earlier this year as part of Underwood’s Christmas album debut, My Gift, a project which features 11 holiday tracks and another notable guest appearance — this time by her 5-year-old son, Isaiah, on “Little Drummer Boy.” She’ll share some of those tunes and other favorites with the My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood on HBO Max December 3. Legend is featured once again as a coach on NBC’s The Voice.
