In their heartfelt new video for their holiday song, “Thank You,” Maldonado and the rest of the five-piece a capella group are seen building snowmen, having a snowball fight, enjoying a family dinner and chatting with loved ones safely and virtually.

“Thank you for your smile / It’s warmer than the fire / Your gentle laughter / Is sweeter than a choir,” the group sings in the chorus.

 

“Thank You” is featured on Pentatonix’s festive album, We Need A Little Christmas, which dropped earlier this month.

The group performed at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday (Nov. 27), and will join NBC‘s Christmas in Rockefeller Center next Wednesday, December 2.
