“During this time of the year, my aunt would be finishing up her Christmas shopping in New York and Chicago, planning her annual holiday event with family and friends, selecting songs for her Christmas playlist, and talking about her menu for Christmas dinner… she loved the holidays; it was her favorite time of the year!” – Sabrina Owens, Aretha’s niece.
This is Aretha’s stunning new version of “Silent Night” featuring her on piano, accompanied only by her unparalleled voice.
