XMAS Countdown No. 20 - Holiday Inn With a Couple of French Guys

What Is It About Canadian Singers?
The list of great singers and songwriters from Canada is long and distinguished - Celine Dion, K.D. Lang, Neil Young and Shania Twain are just some of the accomplished artists from our neighbors to the north. Today's Christmas tune is from two such talented singers. Garou, from Quebec and Daniel Lavoie from Manitoba combine their talents to give us a great take on a timeless Christmas standard. Both singers rose to fame as featured singers in the highly acclaimed musical Notre Dame de Paris
Holiday Inn is a 1941 classic Christmas movie starring Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire and Virginia Dale with music by the great composer and lyricist Irving Berlin. Today's tune and video combine the simpler times captured in the film with a thoroughly modern take on one of the most beloved Christmas standards of all time - No. 20 on The 2012 XMAS Countdown - The Christmas Song (Chestnuts) Accompanied by Scenes from Holiday Inn.

Merry Christmas To Our Friends From The North
