By Request, ‘The King Is Born Tonight’

Requested by Joshua: by the magic of a capella looping, David Wesley sings The King Is Born Tonight.

Personal note: a blast from the past! This tune was first sung in 1939–in the Zulu language–and became a hit when it was translated into English as “The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Whimoway).” I haven’t heard it since I was a schoolboy. Lovely music, put to a new and lovely use! And now the tune’s going to be in my head all day.
