To get viewers into the holiday spirit Adrienne Bailon, 33, and her husband, Israel Houghton, 45, performed a special rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” on her daytime talk show, “The Real”— their first time as a married couple.
Dressed in a white-feather suit dress the beauty took the mic while her gospel singer husband sat at the piano and joined her in vocals. “It felt natural,” he said about the performance after. “Babe, I get nervous,” she said. “But I get less nervous, because I know he’s gonna be amazing. So I’m like, ‘We gonna be alright. One of us got this.’”
They did so well, we wouldn’t be surprised if they put out more music as a duo next year.
“I was married before and I didn’t do the best job,” Houghton told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview before they tied the knot in November. “I was a workaholic and gone all the time, so this time I want to get it right.”
He’s also been pretty vocal about growing up mixed in a Hispanic neighborhood, and how that influenced his musical style.
In a 2013 interview he spoke to the Charisma News about his journey into music as a mixed raced singer:
I’m always open to new expressions, certainly as it relates to worship and cultures all over the world, and that tends to play into the musical part of it. For me, it’s a journey, as is the idea of trying to be as effective as possible as a worship leader.
I remember early on facing some walls and divisions that were skin-tone oriented, where people said you should just do it this way or just do it that way. White people would say, “Don’t do black music,” and black people would say, “Don’t do white music.” And it got so frustrating.
We’re not sure the next time these two will perform together publicly, but judging by how lovely this one was, we think it’ll be sooner than later.
