Singer-songwriter superstar Jennifer Nettles shot to fame with the country music band Sugarland but has since found stardom on her own. She was the first female artist to be the solo songwriter on an ACM Song of the Year since 1972 and has many other awards under her belt.
Last year, she released a Christmas album featuring many amazing holiday hits, including the mashup medley below. Watch the pure joy on Jennifer’s face while she sings and you will feel the warmth of Christmastime.
Her voice is powerful, but it’s the fact the she gives it her all that makes this performance so moving to the people who watch the video. Those who have known Jennifer personally say that she is a kind and compassionate individual.
When you see this performance, her genuineness shows through. The passion the flits across her face while pouring her heart into this studio recording is amazing.
A holiday classic like “O’ Holy Night” combined with the late Leonard Cohen’s beloved single “Hallelujah” is genius. Almost everyone who hears “Hallelujah” feels the warmth of this tune that is so well known.
The effect is contagiously joyous. What could be better at Christmas than to hear such a powerful singer celebrating the holiday with this medley?
Jennifer’s Christmas album is all about celebration. But for this live performance in the studio at satellite radio mecca SiriusXM, Jennifer treated the crowd to a special holiday medley with a twist of country.
She puts her own spin on this mashup performance of Christmas songs. The commentators on YouTube have fallen in love with her vocal treat, too, and can’t stop raving over it.
Jennifer has such a distinctive, unmistakable voice. She sings with gusto, with all her heart and soul.
Her rendition of “O Holy Night” and “Hallelujah” will really get you in the holiday spirit. If you have ever enjoyed Jennifer’s incredible voice, you will be cheering along with the crowd when she begins singing “Hallelujah!”

Even though they’re faithful to Jesus Christ and raise their children to believe the same thing, it’s hard to tell if their little ones truly understand God’s power.
But Chip and Joanna’s worries were put to rest when they spotted a drawing from one of their little girls, Emmie. Their daughter’s adorable illustration showed the love in her heart for Him and how children see faith…
It all started when Joanna wandered into Emmie’s bathroom and immediately spotted scribbling on the counter. At first, the reality star thought her daughter made permanent damage – but then she realized the medium with which her daughter wrote and the heartwarming message scribbled on the counter.
After taking a moment to soak in her daughter’s sweet relationship with God, Joanna ran for her camera. She posted a picture of her daughter’s drawing, writing:
“Walked into Emmie’s bathroom this morning and my heart stopped for a second when I thought she had Sharpied all over her vanity.
And then I took a moment and really read what she wrote and thought, ‘Well that isn’t the worst thing to be permanent.’”
“Then I touched it and realized it was erasable. I stared at her question and loved the thought of it and that that’s how she talks to God. May her faith always stay childlike and may I remember what she seems to already know.
That God is the most relational and the most kind, and always near.”
This was the message Emmie scribbled on the counter:
“Hi God. What are you doing?”
That simple note was the perfect reminder that He’s always with them. God watches over their little ones and now they’re building their own special relationships with Him. That’s all Chip and Joanna could ever ask for!
Joanna’s post went viral before she knew it. Within minutes, people of faith from all around the world were praising Emmie’s connection and the couple for instilling a love of God in their children. We need more parents like these two in the world today!
Listen to Joanna speak about the importance of her faith below. What a smart momma bear!
