High Valley Brothers Reflect On Christmas Tradition

Brothers Curtis and Brad Rempel of Canadian country act High Valley recently shared memories of performing at church on Christmas morning.

“Brad and I are two of six siblings, [plus] our mom and dad,” Curtis told Taste of Country. “It was our church's tradition to have the Rempel family sing on Christmas morning.

“It really wasn't Christmas until the Rempel family sang ‘Mary's Boy Child.’”

The 1956 song, written by Jester Hairston and originally recorded by Harry Belafonte, was given a pop vibe in 1978 by German group Boney M.
