In case you missed the note: The Roots take the holiday season very seriously. Next week they’ll jump straight out of Christmas mode and hit the road on their annual holiday tour (the dates for which are listed below) making stops up and down the east coast. But before they head home, they’re sending us off with some season’s greetings. Last night, the Illafifth was joined by Paul McCartney and the cast of the upcoming animated feature, Sing (Seth McFarlane, Matthew McConaughey, Scarlet Johanssan and more) for a festive a cappella take of Macca’s holiday classic “Wonderful Christmastime.” And yes, the animated versions of each actor make appearances as well.
Watch The Roots, Paul McCartney and the cast of Sing perform “Wonderful Christmastime” down below. Tomorrow night, Yasiin Bey and Ferrari Sheppard will make their Tonight Show debut as Dec. 99th, following today’s arrival of their much-anticipated self-titled album. Sing is in theaters nationwide today.
