In The Spirit Of Giving

Ciara And Kelly Rowland Brought The Holiday Cheer To Kids At Seattle Children's Hospital

"Jingle Bells" has never sounded so good.

We love tinsel and trappings as much as the next Elf on the Shelf devotees, but here at A Plus, we believe that true wintertime magic comes in the form of connection and human kindness. Over the next month, come back and join us in raising a glass to those who give — because what's December without a little holiday spirit?

What's better than two incredibly talented ladies singing Christmas carols to you? Nothing, that's what. Ciara and Kelly Rowland did just that recently when they brought the holiday cheer during a visit to kids at Seattle Children's Hospital, taking on one of the most famous Christmas songs ever, "Jingle Bells," in the process and spreading some much-needed joy.

"Singing #JingleBells with @KellyRowland for Princess Erin," Ciara wrote on Instagram, along with a video of their performance. "@MrBarryBlack on the guitar. What a special day! @WhyNotYouFDN [heart emoji]."

In the video, Ciara and Rowland angelically sing "Jingle Bells" — a song written by James Lord Pierpont in 1857 and, interestingly, originally titled "One Horse Open Sleigh" — while their new friend, Erin, looks on. It looks as if there are some arts and crafts going on, too.

This was all for the Why Not You Foundation, which was founded in 2014 by Russell Wilson (Ciara's husband) in the hopes of, according to their site, "creating real and lasting change in the world by motivating, empowering, and preparing today's youth to be tomorrow's leaders." Ciara also joined the organization's board of directors earlier this month.

"Thank you so much to @ciara & @seattlechildrens for having me!" Rowland wrote on Instagram. "The smiles I saw yesterday made my heart smile! I had so much fun!!! Can't wait to do it again! XO."

The hospital also shared an oh-so-sweet snapshot of the ladies' visit, saying it "warmed [their] hearts to see patients enjoy such a holly jolly, very merry day in the playroom."

"They brought a smile to these kids' faces," one patient's mom, a woman named Suzanne Weir, said. "It helped get our minds off things and made us feel better. I felt like a weight had been taken off my shoulders. We could just relax and have fun."

With Ciara and Rowland in tow, that has the makings of the greatest group of carolers ever.
