Singer Stuns Everyone With Her Rendition Of Holiday Hit

British singer Connie Talbot has recorded both original works as well as covers of other artists' songs, such as Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Sam Smith's "Too Good at Goodbyes." She's a delight to listen to with her angelic voice and a broad range that sounds fantastic.
For the holidays, Connie put her own spin on Mariah Carey's wildly popular Christmas hit "All I Want for Christmas is You." She is seated at a festively decorated piano and begins playing the opening strains of this familiar song that will get your toes tapping.
The 18-year-old started singing this normally upbeat song in a sultry and slow way. Her low-key version of "All I Want for Christmas is You" is truly her own and definitely different than the original.
Mariah recorded it in 1994 and other artists have given it their own spin, too, including Fifth Harmony, Michael Buble, Lady Antebellum, Justin Bieber, CeeLo Green and The Cheetah Girls. Mariah wrote and produced the song herself for her first holiday album and still today it's incredibly popular.
An uptempo love song, Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas is You" is considered to be one of the best selling modern day Christmas songs ever. It's lyrics are both fun and festive.
"I don't want a lot for Christmas. There's just one thing I need. I don't care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree. I just want you for my own more than you could ever know. Make my wish come true. All I want for Christmas is you. I don't want a lot for Christmas. There is just one thing I need. I don't care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree. I don't need to hang my stocking there upon the fireplace. Santa Claus won't make me happy tith a toy on Christmas day. I just want you for my own more than you could ever know. Make my wish come true. All I want for Christmas is you."
Mariah's recording managed to hit the top 10 on music charts a few times. Connie shared on YouTube that it's now expected for her to perform it each holiday season from her fans.
"I guess its now a tradition to do a cover of this iconic song every Christmas or so, lol... I love Mariah and I love this song (even though I have covered it like 5 times now haha). I hope you like my cover of it. Merry Christmas from Me and the three weird green dots on the screen lol xxx."
Connie sings, plays guitar, bass, piano and drums and treats everyone to her spectacular piano playing along with her vocal talent for this recording. Her fantastic voice is perfect for this slower tempo and sultry sounding version.
