HBO Max is spreading holiday cheer with the debut of Carrie Underwood’s new music special My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood!

On Thursday, December 3rd, HBO Max is spreading holiday cheer with the debut of Carrie Underwood’s new music special My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood. The country music superstar will perform a combination of beloved traditional favorites celebrating the joy and hopefulness of the holiday, as well as new original material from her first ever full-length Christmas album My Gift, which was released earlier this fall. During the special, Underwood is accompanied by her band, as well as a live orchestra and choir, conducted by Underwood’s longtime friend, Emmy Award-winning musical director Rickey Minor.

The special features many heartfelt moments and performances, including a duet with John Legend, singing “Hallelujah,” an original song he co-wrote with Toby Gad, which appears on her My Gift album. Viewers will also get an inside look behind the scenes of Underwood recording “Little Drummer Boy” with her five-year-old son Isaiah.

“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Playtone and HBO Max to bring My Gift to life,” the star shares in a statement. “Just like the album, I hope this special will help bring some much-needed joy and become part of the soundtrack to people’s holiday festivities this year as it streams throughout the season and beyond.”

“Hallelujah” Lyrics 

Ooh, in the winter’s chill
Let the candles, light the night up from the window sills
Ooh, as I draw you near
And we whisper all the sweet sounds only we can hear
On the coldest evening in this December
I hold you in the heat of the glowing embers
Let the world stand still, the church bells ring
Silent night as the angels sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the magic warm the moonlit air
Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Ooh, let there be peace on earth
Let the lonely join together, let them know their worth
Ooh, let the children know
There’s a brighter day ahead, let’s hold on to hope
And on the coldest evening in this December
Let us pray the spirit of love will linger
Oh, let the world stand still, the church bells ring
Silent night as the angels sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the magic warm the moonlit air
Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Glory, glory, glory I’m so glad to have you here
And may this Christmas moment last for years
Let the world stand still, the church bells ring
Silent night as the angels sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the magic warm the moonlit air
Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah, Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah
