Called “the voice of an angel,” 14-year-old singing sensation Bobby Hill, one of Ebony Magazine’s 2015 Power 100, has released a new single, “O Holy Night”. The single, which Philadelphia Magazine claims will “put a little spark back into the holiday-tune listening experience,” is featured on his website BobbyWHill.com for free download and Soundcloud.com/BobbyWHill/o-holy-night to stream.

Hill’s meteoric rise began several months ago, following an impromptu a cappella performance of “Pie Jesu” during Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia. Since then, Bobby has traveled across the globe, and was featured at the Ebony Power 100 gala in Los Angeles on December 2. The Ebony Power 100 is an annual list that recognizes those making major strides in the African-American community.

Hill’s single coincides with several upcoming live performances, including a performance of his new single on the Fox and Friends morning show on Monday, December 14, and at Philadelphia’s ‘A Soulful Christmas,’ Tuesday, December 15 at Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall. Hill is one of several scheduled performances that will include also ‘The Queen of Gospel” Shirley Caesar. Bobby gives his own special holiday gift with “O Holy Night” featured on his website BobbyWHill.com for free download, and plans to close out the winter season with a benefit concert on February 29, 2016 at a location to be revealed in the coming weeks.
