We wrote and performed this in the same style of our music video “What Makes You Beautiful”. ALL the sounds you hear are created by different parts of the piano (except the vocals of course).
We wanted this to be a fun arrangement full of “Christmas Spirit.” As we wrote it we imagined the “shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” And how the Angel appeared to them, announcing the humble birth of the Savior of the World. How incredible it would have been when, “suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!” (Holy Bible, Luke Chapter 2)
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We love you!
A special shout out to TEL STEWART – he joined us in our “What Makes You Beautiful” video. Tel helped us get The Piano Guys started. He is so talented that he now has his own production company:TelStewart.com. Once and a while we can still coax him to help us on projects. In fact, he helped us film this – if you watch closely you can see his hands flying the helicopter in the beginning!
