Lady Gaga - White Christmas (Live from A Very Gaga Thanksgiving)
Lady Gaga, on her ABC-tv Thanksgiving special in America, did a jazz version of "White Christmas" that I find extremely charming. First off, she looks as if she's channeling Barbra Streisand. From the head movements, fluttering hand gestures, right down to the very manicured fingernails, dahlings! Secondly, movement into the jazz genre of music is a revelation regarding her versatility as an artist, and a true holiday treat for audiences. We previously heard Gaga channeling Billie Holiday when she did the "Lady Is a Tramp" duet with Tony Bennett, but this is further evidence her vocal talents are not limited to the disco and rock genres (though I love huh in both). So here is Lady Gaga doing "White Christmas," including a verse she added herself.
