Miley Cyrus is no stranger to controversy – however while performing as part of Bill Murray’s Netflix Christmas special, Miley Cyrus performed perhaps the best known religious Christmas song “Silent Night”. Raised in a Christian home with a devout father (Billy Ray Cyrus) it is nice to see some roots of her southern upbringing shine this holiday season.
The lyrics are often overlooked by those singing the song today. However this choice verses many of the secular songs which do not glorify Christ as “Silent Night” does, shows that effort went into selecting the song. Things like this must be applauded considering what many call the “War On Christmas” continues to silence the real reason for the season. To celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
