Us The Duo Puts An Acoustic Spin On 'Silent Night'

We love this version.

Christmas is just a few days away, and Us the Duo's continuing to send us all the Christmas feels with yet another beautiful, acoustic performance.

In a video posted on the duo's YouTube page, Michael and Carissa Alvarado take on a Christmas classic, "Silent Night," but with their own signature spin. For this cover, Michael plays the piano and sings while Carissa joins in on vocals. Rather than maintain the original song's slow, instrumental vibe, Us the Duo adds in a little pep, singing it a little faster and with gorgeous harmonies. 

About halfway through, Us the Duo breaks things down, adding in a little piano and session before continuing along in song. 

"Happy Holidays from our little family to yours," the Alvarados write in a caption on the video.
