Feliz Navidad! There's no more joyful way to greet the holidays than with Daryl Hall and Latin music legend Jose Feliciano, who join together for a special holiday edition in the 37th installment of the award-winning Live From Daryl's House web show.
"It was an amazing experience to hang out with such a talented individual as Daryl Hall," said Feliciano about his Live From Daryl's House appearance. "Not only that, but his wonderful personality goes with his great talent." I concur. I am a HUGE Hall & Oates fan.
The latest edition of the web show includes versions of the traditional 19th century poem and Christmas carol, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," most recently recorded by Daryl Hall and John Oates for their 2006 album, Home For Christmas. "Jingle Bell Rock" was also covered on the same release, while "Feliz Navidad," also included in the seven-song set, was a Top 20 AC hit for Feliciano in both 1998 and 2000.
The set is rounded out with seasonal standards like "Little Drummer Boy" and "Christmas Must Be Tonight" as well as covers of "Light My Fire" and James Taylor's "Fire and Rain," which Feliciano recorded for his most recent album, The Genius of Jose Feliciano Vol. II.
Added Hall: "I've always been a great admirer of Jose's talent, and this opportunity to perform with him on Live From Daryl's House was a real treat, particularly at this time of year when we can collaborate on some classic holiday songs in a warm, home setting. It's our own season's greetings and gift to our fans."
The past 15 months have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live From Daryl's House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony.
