Monica, Robin Thicke, & Lloyd Spread Cheer on ‘A Very BET Christmas’

Monica

It was a soulful night on BET as the network aired its holiday special “A Very BET Christmas.” Looking elegant in a white gown, Monica took it to church with a cover of Yolanda Adams’ “O Holy Night,” Robin Thicke spiced up the classics “White Christmas” and “Merry Christmas Baby,” newcomer Elle Varner paid tribute to Donny Hathaway with “This Christmas,” Mindless Behavior unwrapped their holiday single “Christmas With My Girl,” Lloyd debuted a new Christmas tune, and the legendary Kurtis Blow closed with “Christmas Rappin’.”

A dapper Lloyd channeled Michael Jackson during “She’s All I Want for Christmas.” “It was my turn to take a stab at all the great Christmas music I grew up listening to,” he said. “It was people like Michael Jackson, like Sam Cooke who really inspired me to want to do this in the first place.”

Monica explained her choice of song. “I sang ‘O Holy Night’ which was a song that my aunt sang for many years, but I did the Yolanda Adams version because she’s somebody that’s inspired me over the years,” said Mo. “Southern girls believe in celebrating all the holidays.”
