Friday Open Thread | Christmas Jams 2017

beautiful-christmas-candles-13This Christmas” is a song by American soul musician Donny Hathaway released in 1970 by Atco Records. The song gained renewed interest when it was included in 1991 on Atco Records’ revised edition of their 1968 Soul Christmas compilation album[1] and has since become a modern Christmas standard, with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers reporting that it was the 30th most-performed holiday song of all time.[2]

Phil Upchurch said the song was “absolutely the premiere holiday song written by an African American“. It was written by Hathaway and Nadine McKinnor.[3]
