This video has been all over my Facebook page. I usually don’t watch videos that get posted to my Facebook, especially music videos, but this one was posted so many times that I had to see what all the fuss was about. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised.

The acapella group featured in this video is Pentatonix. They are pretty amazing. It’s hard to believe that five people can sound the way they do without using instruments.

Pentatonix sings a beautiful rendition of Little Drummer Boy. This classic Christmas song has always been one of my favorites, but I’ve never heard it sung quite like this. I’m not ashamed to say that I did tear up a bit when I watched the video.

I usually enjoy Christmas music sung by Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. I love the classics when it comes to holiday music. They remind me of my grandpa. However, I love Pentatonix version of Little Drummer Boy, so I just may have to add an acapella album to my Christmas music collection.
