Watch Keith Urban Sing "I'll Be Your Santa Tonight" with Nicole Kidman on Backup Vocals
It's been a trying year. We're keeping our holiday lights up all January long. We're still baking Christmas cookies by the dozens. We're streaming holiday movies galore and showing no signs of slowing down as we approach the new year.
If you're in the same camp as we are, we're guessing you'll be delighted by this recent video from country singer Keith Urban, featuring a special cameo from his wife Nicole Kidman. Posted on Christmas Eve, and bound to reverberate in our ears for weeks to come, Urban offers up an acoustic rendition of "I'll Be Your Santa Tonight," with musical backing, and the occasional joke from his lovely wife. For the video, the two are seated outdoors with a backdrop of glowing string lights.
"It should be all green and gold / Watching snow / Comin' down, Charlie Brown / And everybody gathered 'round the tree," Urban launches into this performance of his 2019 holiday single with much gusto. Along with providing backup vocals, Kidman also chimes in after Urban sings the line "I'll bring the magic," with a humorous "oh yeah."
"Here's to a bright and buoyant 2021 all over the world. God bless you all, thank you so much, love you guys," Urban concludes, before humming a final "ooooh yeah," and giving his wife a peck. Throughout the video, it's hard not to feel the palpable love between the couple, with their hearty chuckles and doting gazes. Watch and swoon below.
Are there any holiday songs in particular you've enjoyed listening to during this year to raise your spirits? We think Urban's "I'll Be Your Santa Tonight" has well earned a spot on our list.
