A heartwarming and stunning rendition of the holiday song “O Holy Night” was sung by a chemo patient and his nurse. The video has over 130,000 views and it’s no wonder why. The pair sound absolutely incredible together! Penn Pennington is a longtime guitarist from Nashville and had played at the Grand Ole Opry for 23 years.
His nurse at the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center goes by the name of Alex. When she finds out Pennington is a guitarist, she brings in her guitar and convinces him to do a duet with her! This would lead to bedside performances, as Pennington lay in bed strumming the guitar and harmonizing to Alex’s melodies.
