Lauren Alaina’s fans will be thrilled to learn she has a brand-new duet partner, her brother Tyler. A video has surfaced on YouTube showing the siblings singing the holiday classic “Mary, Did You Know” together on Christmas Day. The performance was obviously impromptu since Lauren and Tyler are simply standing in front of a Christmas tree and singing a cappella. Lauren is also dressed up like “Buddy” from the Christmas movie “Elf,” which makes it all the more endearing.
At first, Lauren and Tyler sing together in unison. His deep, strong voice holds things steady while Lauren’s voice soars and adds little flourishes to the melody. A little baby wanders through the shot about halfway through their song, and they keep on singing as the little one waddles toward the lights on the Christmas tree.
Then, Lauren and Tyler really hit their stride as they harmonize on the bridge of the song at the 1:20 mark in the video. It’s got us wondering why Lauren hasn’t recruited Tyler to sing with her on a bigger stage yet?
Lauren’s Christmas duet with her brother is just the latest instance of her spreading holiday cheer. Earlier this month, Lauren hosted her annual Christmas caroling party in Nashville. She gathered about 40 of her friends to go door-to-door singing Christmas carols to neighbors.
Looking forward to 2018, Lauren returns to the road on Jan. 19 in Lexington, Kentucky, opening for Alan Jackson on his “Honky Tonk Highway Tour.”
