    Yes. If he starred in this movie. Very good voice

  • Sue Wilson

    Loved the movie; however, one thing lacking (unless I just missed it) and that was a hug between Joy and her son, at some point. After the piano duet it would have been fitting.
    Anyone agree?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, very much so. I thought the same thing – that it lacked an embrace or hug just before the end.

    • Anonymous

      I was waiting for it too

    • Pam Yaccarino

      I was thinking the same thing. I was waiting for them to hug which to me felt like an unfinished ending.

    “Christmas Memories”…I know it was done as a country Christmas tune by Alabama. I’d like to have this
    movie version.

        Yes. Movie version of this song sounds Bre to me

        • Hallmark needs to come out with a CD of some of these memorable songs from their Christmas movies. Love love this version of Christmas Memories.

  • Diana Helm

    Name of song Joy and newfound son sang and played on piano at end of A Joyous Christmas. I loved it. Words in it: “memories of Christmas make me cry”

      • Harry

        Alabama. One of my favorite Christmas song.

        • But who sang it on the movie? Was it Michael Rady?

          • Diana helm

            Yes. If he starred in movie. Good voice
