‘Christmas Feels Different This Year’ Sarah Reeves Official Music Video

A musically gifted young woman, Sarah Reeves, demonstrated her unbelievable vocal skills by singing an emotional but very different Christmas tune.

Christmas, most people will wholeheartedly agree, is the best time of the entire year. It’s a season filled with family, friends, food and gifts. It’s easy to enjoy and get caught up in the season with all that goes on in the days and weeks leading up to Dec. 25. But for some, Christmas can be an extremely difficult and depressing time of year. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, Sarah Reeves sings a song that reminds us that, for those who have experienced loss throughout the year, Christmas can serve as a sad, distressing and painful reminder. 

“I should cherish the noise
I should feel the joy
But here I am holding back tears
‘Cause Christmas feels different this year”

Not only are the lyrics likely to cause listeners to react emotionally, but the official video for Sarah’s song is sure to evoke a similar response. The video begins with Sarah, wearing a green, festive dress, standing and peering longingly out a window. It’s clear that she’s waiting for someone, but they are more than likely not coming. 

Sarah continues to decorate a tree by herself, placing ornaments on the tree that is sitting in the corner of the room. Then, in what is the most heartbreaking visual of the entire clip, Sarah sits at a table by herself with two empty chairs. 

In a post on social media, Sarah wrote how the song is about a loss in her life, what she felt during that following Christmas season and what she hopes to achieve with her tune.

“The Christmas after my divorce, I remember feeling sad, lonely and honestly ready for it to be over,” Sarah writes. “I love Christmas and the holidays, but I know for many it brings up the loss we’ve experienced. Even though this is not a typical happy Christmas song, I hope it reminds you that you aren’t alone this year.”

Isaiah 41:10 “Have no fear, for I am with you; do not be looking about in trouble, for I am your God; I will give you strength, yes, I will be your helper; yes, my true right hand will be your support.”
