Watch: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Presents The Manhattan Children’s Chorus Singing ‘Silent Night’


In the wake of the tragic elementary school shooting that left 20 children and 7 adults dead early Friday morning, Saturday Night Live chose to open its holiday episode last night with a live performance of the Xmas song Silent Night by The Manhattan Children’s Chorus. No jokes, no skits … just a group of children singing a lovely holiday hymn. It was a powerful way to open the show and a poignant tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Well done, SNL. Very well done.
