It’s the most wonderful time of the year for José Feliciano, whose “Feliz Navidad,” the world’s best-loved bilingual Christmas song, never fails to make its perennial appearance on the Billboard Charts. This week, the song is No. 3 on Latin Streaming Songs, and No. 12 on the Holiday Chart.

Feliciano is now in Rome, where he will perform tomorrow (Dec. 15) at The Vatican’s annual holiday concert. The charity concert will be filmed for a Christmas Day broadcast. He will also travel to Austria to perform at The Vienna Boys’ Choir’s Christmas celebrations Dec. 20 and 21.

On Christmas Eve, Feliciano will make his annual appearance at the Church of the Assumption in Westport, Connecticut, the singer-songwriter’s home town.
