The spirit of John Denver is alive and well in "Christmas Morning"! Lots of acoustic instruments like guitars, mandolin, acoustic bass, and piano give this simple unison piece a real folk/country flavor. Perfect for younger groups or even family sing-alongs, the melody line uses very simple and intuitive intervals which makes it an easy learn for your students, whether in the school or virtual classroom.
The song conjures up images of our favorite Christmas morning – decorations, gifts, food, singing, and spending time with family and friends. It's a happy subject so make sure the happiness comes through in your performance. Bring lots of energy to your presentation and sing in a pop style. When the choruses hit, big, bright voices will lift everyone's Christmas spirit.
