Pentatonix Covers 'Deck The Halls' And It's The Perfect Start To The Christmas Season

Just gorgeous.

We're less than a month away from Christmas, and that means it's time to break out those Christmas tunes and play them all month long. Luckily for us, Pentatonix — aka one of our favorite acapella groups ever — has released another Christmas cover for listeners to enjoy. 

This time, they're singing "Deck the Halls," a Christmas classic you probably know all the words to. The performance features bass vocalist Matt Sallee, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, who's replaced former Pentatonix member Avi Kaplan, for the holiday season. 


"So it's official! I am so honored to be singing with [Pentatonix]!!!" Sallee wrote in an Instagram post last month. "They have been nothing but the most humble and sweet human beings in the world and I'm so blessed and humbled to work with a group of people I have looked up to for such a long time. Dreams do come true people! I'm living proof of it."

This all comes shortly after the group released a heart-stopping cover of "How Great Thou Art" with singer Jennifer Hudson and Sallee, too. And that's not all: Pentonix's Christmas special, A Very Pentatonix Christmas, airs tonight, so we can expect even more festive performances then.

Altogether, the group continues to wow us no matter what they do.
