25 Songs of Christmas – Day 5 – Sweet Little Jesus Boy

Back on schedule now.  Here’s your 5th song of the month.  It’s an old African American spiritual, and I’ve always found it very moving.  My favorite version is Mahalia Jackson’s but I couldn’t find a video with the sound quality I wanted so below is Natalie Cole’s take on it and it’s pretty darn good.  It’s not flashy or peppy, but it seeps through the holiday haze and slows you down enough to let you think clearly for three and a half minutes.  I hope you take the time to enjoy it.
