On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Anna Kendrick got to join Jimmy Fallon and The Roots in singing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" along with the R&B songstress, Darlene Love. The group grabbed schoolroom instruments and wore Christmas themed outfits -- matching white sweaters with red and white accessories.
Darlene Love recorded the song back 1963 on a holiday compilation album. She's won numerous awards throughout her career including being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kendrick was clearly excited to have the opportunity to sing with such a musical legend.
The song has stood the test of time with Love's soulful and emotional voice carrying the beautiful lyrics of a woman singing for her love to come home soon. "The church bells in town are ringing in song. Full of happy songs, baby please come home. They're singing deck the halls but it's not like Christmas at all 'cause I remember when you were here and all the fun we had last year."
