Christmas brings Christmas songs and carols and they add extra color to this wonderful occasion.

Though for some, classic holiday songs are still the best, the question now is, how many years have we been listening to these songs? How many among us are already tired and bored of the same old songs that we keep on playing over the years?

Thankfully, when musical artists got that extra time, they’d make Christmas albums and release them so that people can enjoy something new to the ears. However, most of the time, they’d just make cover songs, adding just a little flavor to make them sound “new.”

One good example of a classic holiday song is the one that features the most famous reindeer of all time, the one with a red nose.

Yes, it’s Rudolf, the Red-Nosed Reindeer!

We all know the song, the lyrics, the melody, and of course, the red-nosed character, Rudolf. We’ve been singing it since we were kids and it’s probably been covered over a hundred times (if not thousands to millions).

With the countless covers this song has, there’s really that one rendition that will capture our attention. Not only because the song turned out to be beautiful but more about who did the song justice and beautification.

This version was made not by amateur singers or professional musical artists. They are modern-day heroes gifted with the talent to sing, thankfully, they didn’t shy away from sharing their God-given gifts with everyone.

They are the United States Navy Band.

Backed with an entire orchestra lead by a conductor, this Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer cover stars a group of handsome Navy men! Can they go beyond just good looks and charisma? Hear them perform, and be the judge.

Wearing fancy tuxedos wrapped by some colorful scarves, this group of five mighty crooners sings at the DAR Constitution Hall, Washington D.C. back in December of the year 2013.

Away from their sworn duty, they decided to give everyone a Christmas treat!

Each gentleman gives the crowd a classy intro as they sing the first few words of the song:

🎵You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?🎵

And just seconds after, they all go to sing the chorus of the song, and oh, it’s splendidly pleasing to the ears. They blend so well, guess the Navy has picked the best of the best for this Christmas song number.

The singing is just the first part, wait until they bust out some dance moves.

Our mighty maritime heroes can sure groove! In unison they go with their simple yet very manly movements. And what can you say about those sunglasses? They are totally in to nail this song!

While the first four Navy men are dancing, the one with the Santa hat digs in the sky-rocketing falsettos on his own. The orchestra, the band, the venue, and especially the singers, everyone is on their A-game.
