The iconic a cappella group, Pentatonix, known for their enchanting holiday music, has returned with their seventh holiday album, titled “The Greatest Christmas Hits.” The album, featuring 23 of their top holiday songs and eight brand new tracks, once again ushers in the yuletide season with a touch of inclusivity.
Comprising Kirstin Maldonado, Matt Sallee, Kevin Olusola, and proud LGBTQ+ members Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi, Pentatonix continues to charm their fans while representing diversity in the music industry. “I’m just so proud of us that we have such a repertoire under our belt and especially at such a young age,” remarks Grassi. “We are still young!”
“The Greatest Christmas Hits” not only brings back the classics but also introduces fresh, original tracks. Maldonado shares, “We took all the classics, all the super big ones, and we were just planning on adding a couple more songs, and then we ended up adding eight! That’s very Pentatonix fashion. It really is the greatest hits of everything we’ve done in the past couple of years.”
Fans can anticipate captivating collaborations with artists like Kelly Clarkson, Tori Kelly, Jennifer Hudson, Meghan Trainor, and more in the new record. Moreover, Pentatonix surprises listeners with a special duet featuring the late Elvis Presley on “O Little Town Of Bethlehem,” a dream come true for the group.
To enhance the festive spirit, Pentatonix embarks on their annual holiday tour, “Pentatonix: The Most Wonderful Tour Of The Year.” Scott Hoying expresses his excitement, saying, “I love that Christmas happens every year! There’s so much love and so much joy that comes with Christmas, and we get a lot of it. Every single show feels like Christmas because it’s a celebration and tradition for families.”
With their heartwarming music and dedication to bringing holiday magic to audiences worldwide, Pentatonix continues to make the season bright, all while celebrating diversity and inclusivity within their group.
