This is sure to get you in the holiday spirit!
Country music legend John Denver and The Muppets delivered holiday cheer with “The Twelve Days of Christmas” in a joyful performance dating back to 1979.
Denver kicked off his rendition of the Christmas carol as a solo, Kermit the Frog joining him shortly after to take over lead on vocals. One-by-one, the talented puppets joined Denver to sing the beloved Christmas tune, their take on “The Twelve Days of Christmas” highly reminiscent of Christmas carolers.
Over the course of his career, the late country music icon released upwards of 300 songs – approximately 200 of which he composed. Denver’s life came to untimely end at age 53 when he crashed his personal aircraft, the tragic accident taking place in 1997.
“The Twelve Days of Christmas” is a Christmas carol with roots dating back to 1780. The song tells the story of a woman receiving a series of elaborate gifts from her “true love” in the twelve days leading up to Christmas.
