Vanessa Williams sings a medley of "Mary Had a Baby" and "Go Tell It on the Mountain" on the TV special "David Foster's Christmas Album" (NBC, December 10, 1993).
This medley is from David Foster's Christmas CD, which features an all-star cast singing some of the best Christmas music of the 1990s:
Vanessa Williams would later include this track on her 1996 "Star Bright" CD:
Like several other tracks on the Foster CD, this medley was edited for television. On "Mary Had a Baby," one verse was deleted; I restored it and filled the video gap with pictures. On "Go Tell It on the Mountain," several choruses were cut; I restored them and compensated by copying and repeating part of the video to fill time.
