‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel’ Children’s Choir With Tommee Profitt Perform Christmas Hymn

‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel’ Children’s Choir With Tommee Profitt Perform Christmas Hymn

Grammy Award-nominated Christian music producer Tommee Profitt joined forces with an orchestra and an immensely talented children’s choir to create a chilling rendition of a beloved Christmas tune.

Christmas is when friends and family come together and celebrate, recognizing the birth of Jesus Christ, the one sent to Earth to save man from his sins. The biblical story of Christ’s birth mentions that an angel of God told Joseph that he was to give the child the name Emmanuel, which means “God with us.”

In a clip posted on YouTube, Tommee and a group of musically gifted children give an epic performance of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” 

“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear”

While the memorable lyrics to the classic tune all remain the same, Tommee plays with the sound. He adds several beats, giving it a more modern and rock feel. This new version would fit right at home in a pivotal scene in an intense, high-octane Hollywood thriller or action film. 

It's certainly a different take on the old Christmas tune, and will likely not be for everyone. But if you’re going to do an updated version of the song, why not go all out, right? 

Additionally, in the official music video for the song, the children, the orchestra members and Tommee perform in what looks to be an abandoned airplane hangar. The dark look of the video is perfect in keeping with the sound and feel of Tommee’s updated version of “O Come O Come Emmanuel.”

As the video’s description mentions, this updated and up-tempo rendition of the Christmas hymn is one of the tracks off Tommee’s Christmas album, "The Birth of The King." Other songs included are a version of “We Three Kings” with the popular contemporary Christian band We The Kingdom and a take on “What Child Is This” featuring pop singer Avril Lavigne. 

Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
