Celebrate Christmas Eve with Some Amazing Musicians who are BlindPublished on
Christmas music is integral to the holidays, and honestly, we love a Christmas classic just as much as a new rendition. Because as long as a song has sleigh bells, twinkling sounds, or references to the winter weather, we welcome it into the genre. And while we can’t decide when it’s socially appropriate to listen to Christmas, we agree the subject matter should range from baby Jesus, gift-giving, and Santa Claus, among other topics. But we get it. The earlier you start listening, the longer you have with your favorite Christmas playlist, even if that means hijacking Halloween, Veteran’s Day, and Thanksgiving.
Whether you’re still trying to get into the Christmas spirit or working on your Braille Christmas ideas, we have some musicians who are blind that you should add to your playlist. Feel free to listen on repeat!
Andrea Bocelli, the exceptional tenor from Italy, sings “What Child is This.”
Stevie Wonder and Andra Day serenade us with a positive message on equality, wishes, and hope for our future with, “Someday at Christmas.”
Jose Feliciano and Daryl Hall wish us all a Merry Christmas with “Feliz Navidad.”
The Blind Boys of Alabama get us out of our seats with their classic “Last Month of the Year.”
Scott MacIntyre is a multi-talented composer and musician. His rendition of “Oh, Holy Night” is truly a gift to the soul.
Laurie Rubin graces us with her rendition of “Hallelujah.”
We hope you enjoyed these six Christmas songs by performers and musicians who are blind. Regardless of the obstacle, musicians who are blind or have visual impairments use adaptable instruments, braille music notation, and God-given ability to create. And have been since the beginning of time. So, if you enjoyed this list, check out our Spotify playlist for non-Christmas tunes! It’s our White Elephant gift to you.
From everyone here at Braille Works: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Listening!
