Merry Christmas: Eurovision Advent calendar day 20

Warm up to Christmas by listening to the beautiful carols performed by Eurovision artists. Each day until Christmas features a new act giving their version of a Christmas song. As 20th, we listen to Ukraine’s Tina Karol.

Back in 2006, Tina Karol represented Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Show Me Your Love. She placed 7th. Since then, she has released several albums, been coach in the Ukrainian “The Voice” and three times won the award as ‘Most Beautiful Woman in Ukraine’.

At the Eurovision Song Contest, Tina sang in in English. In today’s Christmas song, you’ll hear her in her native Ukrainian. Тиха Ніч is the title of the Ukrainian version of the song most know in English as Silent Night. It’s originally from 1818 by Austrian composer Franz Xaver Gruber. The title in its original German language is Stille Nacht, Heillige Nacht. is considered one of the most traditional Christmas carols and has status as UNESCO Cultural heritage.

The lyrics in the Ukrainian version are close to the English one, so you can enjoy the song without wandering what she is singing about.
