Gospel Songstress Sherrie Keys has recorded her own version of the classic Christmas tune, “What Child is This?”. The singer is celebrating the holiday season and her warmest memories of Christmas with a free mp3 download of the Christmas carol on her myspace page.
“With so many attention-grabbing headlines about the economy, I thought I might capture in song the goodwill often shown during the holidays. The celebration of Christmas inspires us to show Christ-like behavior during challenging times” says Keys.
“Christmas is a wonderful celebration. It’s an opportunity to show our love for God and our love for each other by sharing with someone less fortunate, whether it’s a gift, a toy, a phone call, a food basket or a song”.
The singer’s warmest memories of Christmas are captured through inspiring Christmas songs. “What Child Is This?” is a popular Christmas carol written in 1865 by William Dix. William Dix has been called a poet of worship. Dix wrote more than 40 hymns including “What Child Is This?” which is set to the traditional English melody of Greensleeves.
