In 2015, Bill Murray hosted a Christmas special for Netflix and Miley Cyrus stopped by to sing a soulful rendition of “Silent Night.”

Miley Cyrus has come a long way since her Hannah Montana days. Even though she has made choices not everyone agrees with, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: Her talent as a vocalist.

She has previously proved her vocal chops to the country music community by singing her godmother, Dolly Parton’s hit song “Jolene.”

In December 2015, Miley got into the holiday spirit during Bill Murray’s Netflix special, A Very Murray Christmas.

The Christmas special included cameos from famous comedians, actors, and musicians including Rashida Jones, George Clooney, and Amy Poehler.

Cyrus sang a stripped down version of “Silent Night” that will blow you away. She is accompanied by the legendary Paul Schafer piano. She could have sung it a cappella, and it still would have been incredible.

“Silent Night” has taken on many different iterations.

From Aaron Lewis’s incredible take, to Pentatonix’s heavenly and harmonious cover, “Silent Night” has come a long way since its origins in the 1800s.

“Silent Night,” a timeless Christmas carol, embodies serene beauty and profound simplicity in its melody and lyrics. Composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber with lyrics by Joseph Mohr, it originated in Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria. Its gentle, melodic progression evokes a peaceful, contemplative atmosphere, capturing the essence of the silent, holy night of Christ’s birth. Revered for its universal message of tranquility and hope, the song has transcended generations, cultures, and languages, becoming an emblematic piece during the holiday season. Its enduring charm lies in its ability to instill warmth, reflection, and a sense of unity, making it a cherished classic worldwide.

Miley was a stand out in A very Murray Christmas.

While many reviews called A Very Murray Christmas a disappointment, the stand-out moment was Cyrus’ performance. She has true talent and she doesn’t needs a huge stage, out-of-this-world costumes, or onstage antics to prove it.
