It’s that time of year, when Christmas songs fill the air. One song in particular resonates loudly in our homes, and on our playlists: Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas.” The perfect blend of soul music and gospel, “This Christmas” became an instant classic when it was released in 1970, and working its way up to number 11 on the Billboard charts. With his signature tenor, a young Donny Hathaway invokes happy memories of the holiday season, from kissing under the mistletoe to celebrating the ones we love. Today as we get ready for Christmas, we remember Donny Hathaway and celebrate his timeless contribution to the holiday season. What is your favorite Donny Hathaway song?
