Whitney Houston sings a live version of “Do You Hear What I Hear” on the Jay Leno Show to spread Christmas cheer. There have been a lot of attempts to remake this song since it came out in 1962, but few can match the beauty of the harmony in this well-known holiday song by one of the best singers who ever lived.
When you see how powerful and confident Whitney Houston is on stage, it’s easy to see why she is known as a legend. Hearing her sing in harmony with the backing choir makes me feel happy and sad, and her clear tone rises above the melody to steal the show. It’s easy to see why the people watching stood up to applaud.
There aren’t many artists who can make a live show so powerful with just a small stage and a good gospel choir. The way Whitney Houston sings “Do You Hear What I Hear” makes the song better in every way. It’s a holiday treat that people enjoy every year, and it will go down in history as one of the best.
