Jennifer Hudson and Pentatonix perform "How Great Thou Art"

If you weren't already in the holiday spirit, you will go from zero to Santa real quick as soon as you hear Jennifer Hudson's first soulful note of "How Great Thou Art." Her performance of the song alongside world-renowned a cappella group was uploaded to Pentatonix's official YouTube on Tuesday morning (Nov. 21) ahead of their NBC A Very Pentatonix Christmas on Monday, Nov. 27. 

Hudson sparkles in a black dress dotted with rhinestones, overshadowed only by her own voice -- well, and her harmonies with Pentatonix. Their voices flawlessly mesh before Hudson soars into her own notes for the verse "Then sings my soul," with Pentatonix later breaking out the beatboxing. The Heavens could certainly hear.

This is not Pentatonix's first venture into Christmas music, as three of their four charting singles on the Hot 100 are Christmas covers: "Little Drummer Boy," "Hallelujah and "Mary, Did You Know?" 

The full Pentatonix Christmas holiday special will begin airing at 10 p.m. EST on Nov. 27.
