Earlier this month, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings stopped by NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series at NPR Music's office in Washington, D.C. to perform a few holiday themed songs from their just released album, It's A Holiday Soul Party. Watch their performance above.

Kicking off with "Silent Night," Sharon and the band deliver a relaxed version of the song with a jazzy approach that compliments Jones' amazing vocals perfectly. A funky and soulful version of "8 Days (of Hanukkah)" follows before the group close out their short but sweet set with a joyous take of "Big Bulbs" that's accentuated with trumpet.

You can check out Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings' official music videos for "8 Days (of Hanukkah)" and "White Christmas" here on Zumic.
