Kenny Rogers & Wynonna Judd Sing “Mary, Did You Know?” In Virtual Duet

Wynonna Judd and Kenny Rogers recorded the song “Mary, Did You Know?” together in 1997.
In the early 90s, Gaither Vocal Band members Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene wrote a song together title “Mary Did You Know.” The song was first recorded by Christian singer Michael English, and later by the Gaither Vocal Band in 1998 for their Christmas album Still the Greatest Story Ever Told.
It has since become a modern day Christmas classic and has been recorded and covered by many artists.
Some of those artists include Glen Campbell, Scotty McCreery, Reba McEntire, Kathy Mattea, and a cappella group Pentatonix.

In 1997, Kenny Rogers and Wynonna Judd teamed up to sing the angelic song for Rogers’ Christmas album The Gift.

Other songs on The Gift were “A Soldier’s King,” “Pretty Little Baby Child,” “What a Wonderful Beginning,” “It’s the Messiah,” “I Trust You,” and a medley of “The Chosen One Montage,” “The Chosen One,” “Away in a Manger,” “O Holy Night,” “Silent Night,” “The First Noel,” “We Three Kings,” and “Joy to the World.”

Their version did well on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and has become a staple for Wynonna. She will even be singing it at the first-ever Christmas at the Opry TV special, which airs on December 7th.
For a television special on the Gospel Music Channel, Rogers sang the song, but Wynonna was no where in sight.
Many fans wondered if she would show up, but thanks to technology, video of her singing her part of the duet was displayed on the screen behind Rogers. At the very end, Rogers walks up to the screen and it looks like they are both performing together!

Wynonna will be performing “Mary, Did You Know?” at Christmas At The Opry on Thursday, December 7!
Watch the performance below.
