Watch: This ‘Polar Express’ medley is sure to get you in the Christmas spirit earlier than usual

by | Nov. 17, 2020

Christmas came early on Tuesday morning as BYU Vocal Point debuted their Polar Express medley, featuring Rise Up Children’s Choir. The medley highlights music from the 2004 computer-animated film that featured the voice of Tom Hanks, and the video comes complete with a real train, which many in Utah will recognize as the “Heber Creeper.”

The beautifully filmed video coincides with the release of the a capella group’s Christmas album, Newborn King, which includes the medley. 

“Honestly, it’s been a crazy year,” the group wrote on Facebook. “We sincerely hope this music can bring peace into your lives and help you remember what this season is really about! Because seriously, the world needs a little Christmas—right this very minute.”

So, while it may not even be Thanksgiving yet and this may break every rule you’ve set for yourself about listening to Christmas music, this video might be just the holiday cheer you need right now.
