The Baguio City Police Office Band Singing The Iconic Christmas Song "Feliz Navidad"

The Baguio City Police Office isn't only one of the country's finest in purging crime, it also has among its ranks some very fine singers. During a pre-Christmas ceremony at the City Hall, the singing policemen from the BCPO band sang the popular Christmas song Feliz Navidad.

Written and released in 1970 by the Puerto Rican singer Jose Feliciano, Feliz Navidad quickly turned into a Christmas classic. The song currently reigns as one of the most aired and played Christmas songs in the United States, Canada and several other countries.

The song has been covered by a lot of well-known musical acts such as Boney M, Thalia, Michael Buble, Celine Dion, and the late operatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti. Listen to the BCPO band's cover of the song below plus covers by artists like Walk Off The Earth and Boney M.
