Watch: 14-Year-Old Cellist #LightsTheWorld with 18 (and Counting) Incredible New Christmas Songs

by | Dec. 18, 2017


Although many professional and amateur musicians have used their outstanding talents to produce #LightTheWorld videos, perhaps none have gone quite as far as Christopher Tate.

Christopher Tate is a 14-year old cellist who has committed to the #LightTheWorld campaign by posting a Christmas cello piece every day until Christmas. Sometimes he appears in a suit, and sometimes in his pajamas, but either way, he hasn't faltered. He posted #18 just a few hours ago. 

Many of the pieces include multiple parts-—all of which Christopher plays himself. 

We've compiled a few of our favorites for you to watch below. You can also check out the series on his YouTube channel
