Gospel singer Carlene Davis has covered John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Happy Xmas (War Is Over) as This Is Christmas. The song is produced by Glory Music and released by VP Records.

Davis has recorded a number of Christmas songs including Santa Claus Do You Ever Come To The Ghetto, a Yuletide favourite.

Lennon and Yoko Ono cut Happy Xmas (War Is Over) in 1971. They co-produced it with Phil Spector.

The song was re-released in 1982, two years after Lennon was murdered in New York City.

Davis will perform on Christmas Joy In The Bass at Ambassador Theatre in Trench Town, December 20.
