Christmas is fast approaching, and many country stars have already taken the initiative to spotlight their vocals on holiday-themed classics, including Reba McEntire.

The country icon, who re-released her 2016 holiday album, “My Kind Of Christmas,” on Oct. 13, took the stage on a recent episode of daytime talk show “Pickler & Ben,” and delivered a magical rendition of “O Holy Night.”

In this clip, Reba dazzles in a shiny silver top and cross necklace. Ornamented trees surround her as she puts her signature country twang on the classic carol, while accompanied by a piano player.

Speaking of Christmas, the holiday came early for one of Reba’s biggest fans during the “Pickler & Ben” show. The lucky fan named Felicia sent a heartwarming letter about the impact that Reba has had on her throughout her life. Reba surprised Fecicia backstage during the show’s taping, and the fan broke down into happy tears. You can watch that sweet moment below.

Reba, of course, is nowhere near done celebrating the holidays. She will return to television later this month as host of the eighth annual “CMA Country Christmas” special for the first time. Fans can tune in to watch “CMA Country Christmas” on Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
