[Watch] Celine Dion Delivers Sombre Performance Of "O Holy Night" @ Michael Buble Christmas Special

Celine Dion is going through some tough stuff right now. Maybe it was knowing this that had me so moved by her evocative rendition of O Holy Night, recorded for a Michael Buble Christmas special.

With beautifully simple staging, Celine delivered a touching take on the seasonal carol. With minimal belting, it was her control and poise that lifted the performance. Usually not being a fan of the traditional style of the carol, which this was, it was the melancholy edge - that I'm probably projecting onto it- that lifted the performance from the mundane, transforming it into the most     affecting version of O Holy Night I've heard by a Diva.

It has been a while since I've seen such an assured vocal, but it was a pleasure to watch. Celine Dion has continued to preserve and work on her voice, and the dividends of that becomes so apparent in stripped back showings like this.
