Recorded in 1970 by Puerto Rican singer and songwriter José Feliciano, “Feliz Navidad” is a marvel in some ways. “It simply got here to me; there’s no rhyme or motive,” he lately advised Billboard. “The primary lyric got here to me, then I put the English lyric into it, not realizing I had made it the one bilingual Christmas tune ever on this planet. I created a monster.”
Feliciano stopped by The Tonight Present on Monday (Dec. 7) to carry out his enduring hit. Watch beneath.
