“When A Child Is Born” is a popular Christmas song known for its poignant melody and hopeful message. The song’s origins trace back to 1974 when it was originally an instrumental titled “Soleado,” composed by Ciro Dammicco (under the pseudonym Zacar) with Dario Baldan Bembo. The English language lyrics, giving the song its now-famous Christmas theme, were written by Fred Jay, and it was under this new version that the song gained worldwide popularity.

Johnny Mathis’s rendition of “When A Child Is Born” is perhaps the most famous and beloved version. Released in 1976, Mathis’s smooth vocals and the song’s serene orchestration created a classic that resonated deeply with listeners around the world. The song became a significant hit, especially in the UK where it reached the number one spot on the charts during the Christmas season of that year.

While “When A Child Is Born” didn’t receive specific major music awards, its success and enduring appeal are a testament to its impact. The song is cherished for its message of hope and the sense of wonder associated with the birth of a child, themes that align perfectly with the Christmas spirit.

An interesting note about this song is its universal message and appeal. Unlike many Christmas songs that are heavily rooted in Christian imagery, “When A Child Is Born” speaks to a broader sense of hope and anticipation that transcends specific religious narratives. This universal appeal is a key reason for its enduring popularity across different cultures and audiences. Johnny Mathis’s version, in particular, is noted for its emotional delivery and has become a staple in holiday music collections worldwide.
