The late Grammy-winning Donna Summer, who was born in Dorchester, put out a Christmas album titled “Christmas Spirit” in 1994 that includes renditions of “White Christmas” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” Our favorite from the compilation has to be “The Christmas Song,” though, and we found a video of Summer performing it from un undated ABC show. Summer died after a battle with cancer on May 17, 2012.
A sample of “The Christmas Song”:
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Pictured: Summer performed during the David Foster and Friends concert on Oct. 15, 2010, in Las Vegas.
