The members of Pentatonix are veterans when it comes to tackling Christmas classics. They’ve nailed more religious tunes like “Silent Night” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” and totally rocked pop hits like “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and “Where Are You Christmas.” But their rendition of “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” is too fun for words.
They’re able to lock down the cheery feeling of the holiday season without sacrificing a bit of their flair. We’ve never heard anything quite like this before!
In an interview with Fashion Magazine, Kirstin and the rest of the gang spoke about how much they love performing Christmas music. She explained that their sound just seems to mesh with Christmas music – and as someone who thoroughly enjoys the holiday, she doesn’t mind that they spend a lot of time on the genre.
“I think acapella and Christmas music just goes really well together. We’re just a joyous band and our music is just fun, happy and nostalgic.”
Her bandmate Scott agreed. He told Fashion that Christmas music is a genre that fills its listeners with delight.
“It makes you feel something no matter what you believe, and I think that’s why it’s reached such a mass amount of people.”
They’ve been able to share their love for the holiday with their fans and it has gone marvelously. Every original Christmas song has been a smash hit and every cover has been viewed millions of times. Clearly, they’re onto something with their passion for Christmas.
We can see this in every video – but it’s especially evident with their rendition of “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.”
Kirstin told AXS that Christmas will always hold a special place in her heart due to her family’s adorable traditions.
“We’re always making yummy little treats. My mom, nana and I have always made a Happy Birthday, Jesus cake. We put birthday candles on it and sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Him. That’s been our thing since I was a little kid. We still do that…
When I was a kid, [the worst gift I received] was socks or lotion or something. You know what I mean? The stocking stuffers. It’s like, when you get a lot of little things, you’re like ‘you couldn’t have gotten me one awesome thing?’ Now, when I get socks, I’m like ‘great, I need these!”
She (and the rest of the group) have quickly realized it’s the little things that matter most during the holiday season. Things like spending time around the Christmas tree are the memories they’ll remember decades from now – not what big-ticket item they received and from whom.
That’s why the talented members of Pentatonix wanted to share their fun rendition of “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” Try to keep their powerful message in mind when you’re decking the tree with loved ones this year!
Listen to their rendition of “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” in the video below. We absolutely love it!
