The Christmas season wouldn’t be complete without the delightful and happy songs we all know and love.
Because Christmas songs are extremely popular, it isn’t surprising to find a few different versions of the same songs. From popular music celebrities to new and aspiring musicians, each has his or her own take on the song and that makes the melodies unique to their particular version. Jared Halley, however, took his rendition of the most popular Christmas songs to an entirely new level.
Jared Halley, a popular artist and producer who makes videos on YouTube, orchestrated an acapella mashup of the top 5 Christmas pop songs. His video was set up in what seems like a family living room, complete with a piano, of course, a Christmas tree. The location absolutely adds warmth to his video, and anyone who watches it will feel that the Christmas season is really upon us.
In the video, you can see not one – but 5 Jared Halleys – all dressed up in amazing Christmas themed sweaters. Each Jared has a unique contribution to the song. One was singing while the rest were playing different beats to bring the songs vibrancy. One of them was at the top of the piano while the other 4 were seated around the room.
And just as they played the well-known “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree,” two more Jareds appeared from behind the tree. These surprises really help to make the video entertaining.
In the video, he also sings “So This Is Christmas,” “Last Christmas,” “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town,” and “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” At the end, he actually sings them all again.
Jared Halley really shines in the way he produces music. Using only his mouth and voice, he’s able to recreate a variety of different sounds. And by adding percussion elements like stomps, he’s able to create an incredible a cappella masterpiece.
Besides this Christmas mashup, he also has his own covers of Queen’s most popular songs as well as the popular hits of Linkin Park, Shawn Mendes, Michael Jackson, and The Beach Boys.
