Most Memorable 'Feliz Navidad' Covers: From Celine Dion to the Cast of 'Glee'
As if on cue, José Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad" returns as No. 1 on Billboard's Latin Digital Songs (chart dated Dec. 24), just as it has each year since the chart was launched back in 2010. It's currently No. 2 on the Holiday Airplay chart.
"I never would have thought that I would have created a monster with this song," the Puerto Rican singer told Billboard in a previous interview. "'Feliz Navidad' happens to be one of those songs that is not exclusively for Latinos -- it’s in both English and Spanish and I think that’s an advantage."
After Feliciano recorded the jingle back in 1970 and it became a holiday classic, the bilingual Christmas song has been covered by many artists, including Canadian singers Céline Dion and Michael Bublé and The Three Tenors: Luciano Pavarotte, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. It was even covered by the Glee cast during season 4's 10th episode.
