Puck’s Christmas Favorites: Dave, Paul, Cher, and Darlene
A Late Show with David Letterman Christmas tradition is a fantastic performance of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” by the inimitable Darlene Love, gorgeously backed by singers and an expanded CBS Orchestra to re-create live the unmistakable “Wall of Sound”, all expertly directed by Paul Shaffer.
But before this can happen, Paul must remind us of an unforgettable Sonny and Cher Christmas special of yore, and Cher’s very memorable rendition of “O Holy Night”…
This is Darlene Love’s performance from last year.
Sadly, due to the ongoing and seemingly interminable Writers’ Guild strike, there will be no such performance this year.
