There are few things that can get you in the holiday spirit like Christmas music, and there are few things that represent the holidays more than bringing people together. In Brett Eldredge’s stunning new video for his acapella take on “The First Noel,” the golden-voiced singer does just that. On social media, Eldredge shared, “This is one of the realest, rawest things I’ve ever got to be a part of…I hope it helps you find peace in your heart.” Watch his beautiful rendition above.
In the stark and stirring video, Eldredge sings the oft-covered classic in an abandoned church, unaccompanied by anything aside from his powerful and emotional voice. Over the course of the clip, he’s joined by people of various ages, genders, and backgrounds in the beautiful, abandoned church. Each of the people who enter the church light a candle, and by the end of the video, the previously dark church is completely bathed in candlelight.
“We wanted to show how we are all going through life searching for peace,” Eldredge shares with Esquire of the meaning behind the video. “And the [simple] message of this song can bring us all together, in one place.”
Eldredge will bring his Glow tour to New York City’s Beacon Theater on December 11 and will most likely be singing his version of “The First Noel” at the show. Limited tickets are available for purchase here.
