UK-based singer, songwriter, and worship leader Philippa Hanna has put her own spin in the beautiful Christmas offering "Little Donley." There's something about the way a child hears the Christmas story that makes it come alive, and for Philippa, "Little Donkey" connects her with that starry-eyed, three-year-old version of herself. We hope 'Little Donkey' also takes you back to the simplicity and magic of Christmas through a child's eyes; and above all, may you see the beauty of the Saviour's coming with new awe this Christmas!
"My re-imagined version of Little Donkey will be out to stream on all platforms," Hanna writes, "You'll also be able to see the little lyric video we made and enjoy that on Youtube, Hope you guys enjoy this little Christmas offering. So special to be taken back to childhood with a classic nativity song, at Ozma's first Christmas. Enjoy."
