AJ Rafael and Simu Liu’s “Have Yourself a White Christmas” medley is making a comeback for the Yuletide season — and we’re all for the nostalgia on repeat.
The cover, which first came out in 2018, combines Frank Sinatra’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas.”
Rafael shared it on Facebook earlier Friday as a throwback holiday greeting, as well as an invitation to jam with Liu again.
“Happy Holidays everyone. Here’s a throwback with Simu Liu. Let’s jam again soon, brother!” the Filipino American singer-songwriter wrote.

The original video has 42,000 views on YouTube. At the time of its posting, Rafael had just released “Like Me” — his first original song in four years — while Liu was between the second and third seasons of “Kim’s Convenience.”
“Merry Christmas from an American and a Canadian,” Rafael wrote at the time. “I’m sure a ton of you know Simu from Kim’s Convenience, or Wong Fu shorts…but did you know that he sings?!? Hope you enjoy our little medley of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ and ‘White Christmas!’”
Rafael married singer, actor and executive producer Alyssa Navarro in Hawaii in August. They held a second wedding in Los Angeles a month later.
