John Legend just blessed us by singing some of his favorite holiday tunes. 

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

In partnership with his wine brand LVE Wines, The Voice Coach posted live-streamed videos of himself singing legendary Christmas songs and original tunes at his piano bar in his home. 

"We're wishing you a safe, loving, peaceful holiday season," he said before playing some gentle piano notes and singing "Silver Bells." During his rendition, he crooned in a rich, jazzy tone that'll make you want to relax with a glass of wine by the fireplace.

Legend then also launched into a version of his original tune "You Deserve It All," where he sang the romantic lyrics with passion. Then, he sang "Favorite Things" originally from The Sound of Music, and put a unique spin on the classic tune.

For his next number, Legend fittingly sang "The Christmas Song" made famous by Nat King Cole. During his ultra cozy version, he riffed smoothly and finished with a confident note. 

Then, taking a request, he sang one of his first original hits, "Ordinary People."

"I'm so grateful everybody's been with me all this time," he nostalgically told his fans before launching into a gorgeous performance. 

Legend then referenced his 2004 song "I Can Change," featuring Snoop Dogg. 

"My son Miles loves that song, so I listen to that song to this day," Legend said.

For his final performance, Legend sang an emotional rendition of his smash-hit song "All of Me," which he wrote for his wife Chrissy Teigen, and sang at their wedding
