Kirstin Maldonado is getting into the holiday spirit with an assist from an Oscar winner…
The 25-year-old half-Mexican and part-Spanish American singer/songwriter and her Pentatonix group mates have joined voices with Jennifer Hudson on their soulful cover of “How Great Thou Art.”
The performance of the song was uploaded to Pentatonix’s official YouTube channel this week ahead of their NBC holiday special A Very Pentatonix Christmas airing on Monday, November 27.
Hudson voice flawlessly meshes with Maldonado and her group mates before Hudson soars into her own notes for the verse “Then sings my soul,” with Pentatonix later breaking out the beatboxing.
This is Pentatonix’s latest venture into Christmas music. Three of their four charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 are Christmas covers: “Little Drummer Boy,” “Hallelujah” and “Mary, Did You Know?”
The full Pentatonix Christmas holiday special will begin airing at 10:00 pm EST on November 27.
