It’s only October, but CeeLo Green is already in a jolly state of mind. The Goodie Mob member joins forces with his “Voice” co-star Christina Aguilera on the Christmas standard “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” from his upcoming holiday album CeeLo’s Magic Moment, due October 30.
Originally penned in 1944 by Frank Loesser, CeeLo and Christina’s smooth rendition adds soul to the Christmas favorite. The song has been re-done by several big names including Ray Charles, Bette Midler, and even the cast of “Glee.”
The album will feature other Christmas classics like “White Christmas,” “This Christmas,” “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” and “All I Need Is Love” featuring The Muppets. The multi-talented performer will be accompanied by some special guests at “CeeLo and Friends,” a concert to be held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on October 10. CeeLo will perform songs off the album along with artists from NBC’s “The Voice,” with the special to debut November 26 on The Warner Sound.
Listen to 90 seconds of CeeLo and Xtina’s holiday duet and stream snippets from the entire album on iTunes.
