Christmas Sing Off

Classic vs. Remix

Mariah Carey, the Classic, or Pentatonix the Hip Hop Remix?

Mariah Carey… when you hear her name, all the Christmas memories and feelings come flooding back. Sitting in your living room with the romantic Christmas tree and lights, the magic of the fluffy white snow, and singing your heart out to this Christmas classic… All I Want For Christmas Is You.

Mariah Carey has a very original voice that is charming to listen to and unforgettable. Combine that with her catchy lyrics and melody,  Carey is a unique artist who captures millions of listeners with her top-chart, billboard-worthy voice.

Or are you a more modern Christmas celebrator? Do you prefer the upbeat hip-hop remix version of All I Want For Christmas Is You? Then your Christmas memories return when you hear the captivating tunes of Pentatonix’s Christmas music.

Pentatonix is a tight-knit group. Every singer in their chorus is playing a very different and unique part. From beatboxing the backtrack to singing harmony to just adding vocal depth that makes this group so appealing.

So, now that you have some background information, listen to the recordings of these two songs then vote for which one you like the best. Remember to check back periodically to see who is in the lead!

    Rionna, I loved your article! So well written! Although I am not a huge fan of Mariah Carey’s voice in general, this is one of my favorite Christmas songs. So I definitely vote for Mariah’s version. Enjoy your winter break!

    Hi Rionna! I remember when Mariah Carey’s Christmas CD came out waaaaaaay back in 1994. I rushed to Best Buy to purchase it and blasted her songs all season long. The new version is cool, but I voted for Mariah!
