You have to have some theatricality, especially if it’s a video released on YouTube. It’s all about the views and the likes!

When he starts singing, however, it makes sense.

The robe just seems to fit the vibes. That means Mr. Antoine knows and understands showmanship!

He has a deep, yet clear voice that he has perfect control of.

It’s a refreshing change from the more mainstream styles that dominate playlists nowadays.

We all know the song, yet it still manages to give chills.

This video shows that it’s not always about having MORE or making everything BIGGER.

Sometimes, just a piano and a sweeping, majestic voice are all you need to make a performance truly wonderful. Surely, this is an example of that.

As a tenor, Antoine fits a special niche.

And it’s a niche with a very small company. Only the best are allowed in it.

Tenor-style voices are higher than Baritone, but have a clarity that is nearly unmatched!

Tenors are known for being the highest “chest voice” for men, meaning he sings from a deep place inside his chest while also having the clarity of singing in a higher key.

Ultimately, it means he sounds rich but you can totally understand what he’s singing.

The song continued as everyone waited for THE moment.

In the song O Holy Night, there is the final part near the end where the singer can really let loose.

For this song, it came around the 3:35 mark and it is truly everything you hope it will be!

As Antoine raises his hands in the air with his final notes, you get a sense of the grandeur of it all, and he does not disappoint.

Finishing with a flourish, Antoine and his piano player close out a Christmas classic.

Can’t you imagine? Sitting by a fire, drinking a hot drink, listening to a sweeping voice sing a song written in 1847 that is still played to this day!

That sounds like the perfect night for the most wonderful time of the year.
