American Idol 2020 alum Louis Knight has dropped a couple of Christmas covers. The Philadelphia-by-way-of-UK singer filmed a music video for a rendition of Wham’s “Last Christmas” and dropped it during Thanksgiving week. And then, a few days ago (Dec 3), he released a cover of the classic holiday song, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Both tunes are available to stream and download.
On Thanksgiving, Louis wrote on social media: “Happy thanksgiving everyone! Things are different this year but i hope you’ve found a way to give thanks and spend time with loved ones (safely). This year has completely changed my life and i really can’t tell you how much each one of you mean to me. thank you for believing in me, and sharing this journey with me.”
And he wrote about the inspiration for recording Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas: “After diving into the lyrics of this song i had to do a cover of it. It really speaks to everything we’ve all been going through this year, and yearning for the time we can all be together again.”
Check out both songs below.
