Christmas is just around the corner, and what better way to get in the holiday spirit than through some quality music, right?

The video below is a beautiful rendition of a song we all know and love to listen to especially during this time of the year: “Mary Did You Know”. Singer Peter Hollens wanted to give something special to his fans to help them make the most out of this holiday, and his best gift was to record a personal version of a song many of his fans love and know.

But he wanted to do a rendition that was out of the ordinary, and I think it’s safe to say he managed to achieve just that. He decided to sing the song a Capella, which is amazing considering this song requires a group.

So how did he managed to sing all the parts of the song and basically be a one-man a Capella group? His solution is as simple as it is brilliant. He sang all the parts separately and then layered them together so that they would blend in perfect harmony.

Give yourself an early Christmas present and listen to this song!
