Any live performance of Keith Whitley's is considered rare, but one of him singing a Christmas song, is a whole different level of rare.

Playing the piano, and then later taking up the guitar, Whitley delivers haunting vocals on this heartbreaking song about a boy who just wants peace on Earth for Christmas.

Recorded just a few years before his untimely death, this song has much more meaning now that he's passed. His version of this song was included on A Country Christmas, Volume 4 in 1990, which was released a year-and-a-half after his death.

He sings about how he asks Santa for more love, peace, and no hungry children, instead of material things most children ask Santa for.

His performance is absolutely incredible and it further proves just how legendary he is.

Watch the incredible, rare performance below.

Lyrics Below

At an antique desk
An old man sits alone
It's Christmas Eve
And it's almost time to go

He signs his name to a letter he just wrote
Then he reads it back with a voice as soft as snow

I want peace on earth for Christmas
In a world where there's not one hungry child
They would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All I'm asking for is a little more love

Then he walks outside
And he climbs up on his sleigh
And calls out to his reindeer
Off they fly away
Oh tonight he'll make a million dreams appear
While he wishes that his own dreams would come true this year

I want peace on earth for Christmas
In a world where there's not one hungry child
They would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All I'm asking for is a little more love

That they would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All I'm asking for is a little more love
