**AUDIO REMOVED BY REQUEST OF COPYRIGHT OWNER** Celine Dion & David Foster perform "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" on his TV special, "David Foster's Christmas Album" (NBC, December 10, 1993).
The staging and camera work on this video are beautifully matched to the musical arrangement. The closing is especially memorable, as Celine & David are bathed in light as the orchestra plays its final notes.
On the TV broadcast, the musical interlude in the middle of the song was edited to make it shorter. I have restored the full-length audio here, and inserted a couple of photos to fill the gap in the video.
In 2003, David Foster re-used this arrangement on a recording by Michael Buble... and I do mean the exact same arrangement. Listen and you'll hear Michael sing along with the identical music tracks that Celine used: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6aW1l...
