Two of the biggest voices on stage and screen joined forces to record a bold, brassy new version of the winter classic “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” and we are loving it! Tony Award winners Idina Menzel and Billy Porter released a festive and fun music video today just in time to get us all in the Christmas spirit.
In the stylish music video, Menzel and Porter are joined by dancers clad in holiday red as they show off their killer vocals. At first they each take their turns singing by themselves, but it’s when the two sing together at the end of the song that it really takes off. This is all I want for Christmas.
Menzel and Porter are two of the biggest stars in the world right now. Porter has been the best dressed person at every red carpet this year and recently won an Emmy for his performance as Pray Tell in FX’s Pose, and Menzel voices Queen Elsa in the current number one movie in the world, Frozen 2.
“I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” was written by Irving Berlin (he also wrote “White Christmas” and a dozen other standards) and first appeared in the 1937 musical On the Avenue.
The track appears on Menzel’s new holiday album, Christmas: A Season of Love, which also features duets Ariana Grande, her husband Aaron Lohr, and Frozen 2 co-star Josh Gad. The album is available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music right now.
