LISTEN: Lea Salonga covers Jose Mari Chan’s ‘Christmas in Our Hearts’ with Pentatonix
Christmas is still more than a month away, but Lea Salonga and the American a cappella group Pentatonix are already bringing in the holiday cheer with their collaboration for a cover of “Christmas in Our Hearts.”
Salonga and Pentatonix joined forces for their own rendition of Jose Mari Chan’s popular Christmas song, as part of the group’s “Holidays Around the World” album released on Pentatonix’s YouTube channel today, Oct. 28.
Pentatonix also teamed up with other international artists—including pop star Meghan Trainor, Chinese pianist Lang Lang, Congolese singer Grace Lokwa and Lebanese singer Hiba Tawaji—to bring holidays tunes from all over the globe.
“This album is unlike anything we’ve ever released before! Much like the album’s title, ‘HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD,’ we wanted to invite a few incredible artists from all around the world to help celebrate the season with us,” Pentatonix stated on its Facebook page, also today. “These artists all sound amazing and we are so thrilled to have them on this record.”
