:)

Who can sing it best? I heard a Kelly Clarkson version and she was great. Even if she came from a cheesy show (that I happen to love), she can SING!!

1. But when it's sung by someone who can't HIT them, it's dreadful..
And it seems to happen EVERY year at a christmas program.

Not sure where an online version mp3 would be.

It was their only big US hit about 5 years ago. They were much bigger in Europe and Internationally.

5. Spoken like a true soprano (a guess)
We altos are not happy with high notes at all!

8. Promise not to laugh?
Robert Goulet

A deep voice does more credit to the awe-inspiring tone of the song than a soprano ever will.

12. I agree. Most sopranos don't have the range to get low enough,
so the whole song is pitched too high.
