Part 1: Top 15 Best Black Christmas Songs


Boyz II Men – Let It Snow

We don’t hear too often about Boyz II Men anymore but there was a time when their music was everywhere, especially during the holidays.


The Jackson 5 – I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

You can’t talk about Christmas songs by black artists without at least mentioning The Jackson 5.  Although the group isn’t around anymore, many of its songs continue to be played every year during Christmas time.


Destiny’s Child – 8 Days of Christmas

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that 8 Days of Christmas is one of the most memorable black Christmas songs for anyone who grew up in the early 2000s.

Temptations – Silent Night

There have been many versions of Silent Night over the years but Temptations’ take on the classic Christmas carol is the best at capturing the emotional aspects of the holiday season.


Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas is You

By far one of the most famous black Christmas songs of all time, Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You remains a staple at holiday parties all over the world.

The Jackson 5 – Santa Claus is Coming to Town

I’m sure you’re already very familiar with the classic version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town but do you know the version created by The Jackson 5? If you don’t, now is as good a time as any to go and look it up.


Stevie Wonder – Someday at Christmas feat. Andra Day

No list of black Christmas songs would be complete without at least entry from the legendary Stevie Wonder, who partnered with the talented Andra Day a few years back for a modern re-release of his classic 1967 hit Someday at Christmas.


Otis Redding – Merry Christmas Baby

1967 was apparently a great year for Christmas songs. Not only did Stevie Wonder release the original version of Someday at Christmas but Otis Redding’s funky Merry Christmas Baby came out the same year.


Whitney Houston – One Wish

The late Whitney Houston created many holiday-themed songs and it’s a bit difficult to say which of them is her absolute best. If we were to just simply pick our favorite, though, One Wish would win by far.

Kanye West – Christmas in Harlem

Although our list of black Christmas songs includes a lot of classics, we can’t forget about more recent holiday-themed tracks like Kanye West’s Christmas in Harlem.


Chris Brown – This Christmas

A very heartwarming song about being together with your loved ones during the holidays. In other words, a perfect black Christmas song.


Snoop Dogg – Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto

Not exactly a traditional Christmas song but sometimes you just feel like listening to some good hip-hop during this time of the year.

Mary J. Blige – No Happy Holidays

A lot of artists like to create songs for one specific occasion, such as Christmas, but Mary J. Blige decided to create one that would be fitting for all the important holidays so we can enjoy it all year long.


Donny Hathaway – This Christmas

Though Chris Brown’s version may be the more popular black Christmas song today, this wasn’t always the case as the original was released by Donny Hathaway back in the 70s.

Part 2: How to Download These Black Christmas Songs from YouTube

All the best black Christmas songs by black artists can be found on YouTube but you’re out of luck if you want to download them because the website doesn’t allow it. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t still do it anyway because you can use a tool called DVDFab YouTube to MP3 to download as many songs as you want. With this tool, you can download not just individual songs but entire playlists as well along with any available metadata. Here’s how it works:
