No. 8 on The 2012 XMAS Countdown - Away In A Manger Has Never Been This Funky

The Blind Boys of Alabama Just Keep Singing
The Blind Boys of Alabama started singing in 1939 at nine year olds at The Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in Talladega, Alabama. After a seventy plus year history, numerous personnel changes and five Grammys, this iconic group of singers is still lifting spirits and impressing audiences all over the world. In addition, they have collaborated with a who's who of the recording world - Bonnie Raitt, Tom Waits and My Morning Jacket, just to name a few. 
Today's Countdown Tune was first published in 1885. And today's version is one of the most soulful, funky versions of any Christmas carol you will ever hear. No. 9 on The XMAS Countdown - Away In A Manger by The Blind Boys of Alabama joined by funk masters George Clinton and Robert Randolph.
Here's Hoping You and Yours Are Enjoying This Season - Merry Christmas
