Camila Cabello has shared her cover of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and fans are loving her Latin twist on the American holiday classic. The song was officially released in anticipation of the holiday season on Friday, November 4th.
According to Broadway World, Camila first debuted the cover on "Michael Bublé's Christmas in the City" special on NBC in 2021 and the track had yet to receive a wide release on streaming services until now. Her performance on the special featured a full mariachi providing stunning guitars and strings. At the time, fans were impressed by her vocals and commitment to bringing her culture to a mainstream audience.
Camila is currently a judge on Season 22 of The Voice, joining longtime coaches Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Gwen Stefani. In a recent episode, the singer made headlines after a contestant sang a song by her ex-boyfriend Shawn Mendes. Contestant Tanner Howe sounded so good singing Mendes' song "Mercy" that Camila almost thought Shawn was on the stage behind her.
"Is that my… Is that Shawn up there?" she said when once the performance had come to an end. "I thought that was Shawn." After Camila told him he sounded too much like Mendes, Howe responded, "I really respect Shawn as an artist, and I see myself in that lane, but I totally love what you're saying. Thank you so much. I'll try and be more unique." Camila then joked, "I was in his lane — deeply," earning laughs from the coaches and the audience.
