Hey brother Cro!!! Merry Christmas!!!
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, and that young girl sings it beautifully. I'm glad she (or more likely, her singing coach) has enough self-respect to sing it properly, in the classical way. This song deserves that.
Too many popular singers do not have that self-respect and they end up ruining it, for me at least. The country singers want to "twang" it up, and you know what the rest do. A prime example is Mariah Carey. She is a beautiful lady and has a beautiful voice, but she doesn't have enough respect for either the song or herself, IMHO, to do it properly. Or maybe she is just not good enough?
I do have to give kudos to Carrie Underwood. She actually sings this song properly. She sings it reasonably well, too. Not awesomely, but well. Jackie Evancho definitely sings it better than Carrie, though.
About 17 years ago I went to the Christmas special at Dixie Stampede; a dinner show in Pigeon Forge, TN. There I saw/heard a young (mid-20s) woman sing this song in a way that sent shivers up my spine and brought tears to my eyes. She sung it perfectly, in the classical way, and had a very, very strong voice. The high note, especially, was incredible. I have no idea who she was, but I wish I did. I have tried ever since to find a performance as good as that one. So far, nada.

We agree, Wecsog, about the traditional style of singing that song. I suspect you feel the same about the singers at the football games and their renditions of the Star Spangled Banner......lol, is that the song they sing??? Just listen to the Voice sometime. They can't seem to sing anything without F---ing it up. But then, I'm old and out of style.
