One of my favourite Christmas songs is from the Disney movie A Christmas Carol which was released last year. It was performed by the incredibly talented Andrea Bocelli and it is called "God Bless us Everyone". The song's title comes from a line spoken by Tiny Tim in the original story of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.Source. When Scrooge is visited by The Ghost of Christmas Present he is shown just how ill Tim really is, and that Tim will die unless he receives treatment. When visited by The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come all he sees of Tim is his crutch because Tim has died. This, and several other visions, lead Scrooge to reform his ways.
In the story, Tiny Tim is known for the statement, "God bless us, every one!," which he offers as a blessing at Christmas dinner. Dickens repeats the phrase at the end of the story.
Please enjoy "God Bless Us Everyone" performed by Andrea Bocelli over the end credits for the Disney film A Christmas Carol.
