Carrie Underwood is bringing the Christmas magic with her latest holiday collaboration. On Saturday, the country singer shared that the music video for her rendition of "Hallelujah" with John Legend was released. However, not everyone is stoked to see the pair's visual collaboration.
Underwood and Legend's first-ever duet is a part of the "Cry Pretty" singer's first Christmas album, My Gift. The album was initially released in late September to get a jump start on the holiday season. While the album was released a couple of months ago, Underwood only recently released the music video for her and Legend's rendition of "Hallelujah" on Saturday. In addition to collaborating on that track, Legend will also make an appearance on Underwood's upcoming music special, My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood, which will stream on HBO Max starting on Dec. 3.
Of course, many were thrilled to see the two singers' collaboration. However, some didn't respond as fondly to their duet.
Love this song Carrie and it's one of my favorite off the CD. Your and Legend's voices sound wonderful to my ears and harmonize so beautifully. Don't pay attention to haters. Millions of your true fans are with you all the way and love the collaboration♥️💕— Lillian Eversole (@mondavia) November 21, 2020
One fan told Underwood to ignore the haters who have been bashing the pair's collaboration. They even wrote that the singers voiced sounded "wonderful" together.prevnext
Not A Legend Fan
On Facebook, one individual wrote, "Love Carrie but idiot Legend not so much. He became an uninformed political hack." In fact, there were many users on Facebook who shared that they did not love the collaboration between Underwood and Legend because of the "All of Me" singer's political views, as he was vocal with his support for President-elect Joe Biden.prevnext
This fan praised both the song and the video. They even included a slew of Christmas-related emojis to showcase that the track got them into the holiday spirit.prevnext
