now playing: Kathy Mattea: Mary Did You Know? video
Kathy Mattea's album Good News is a spare yet elegant Christmas album which could serve as a soundtrack for the reflective season of Advent. Mary Did You Know? a contemporary Christmas song, marks that place of humanity contemplating God in a way which will reach anyone who is a parent, certainly, and also anyone who has ever held or helped a small child. It's a strong, unsentimental song yet one filled with wonder, a duality which Mattea gets right to the heart of here in a live performance video. The video is open captioned.
