Former "Little Rascals" and "Full House" star Blake McIver's music career is clearly on the rise. Just days after McIver unveiled a steamy music video for "Wish I Didn't Need You," the openly gay actor, singer and go-go dancer is getting into the holiday spirit with his version of the Christmas classic, "O Holy Night."
At the start of the long Thanksgiving weekend, McIver teased his new musical release with a dapper-looking photo on Instagram that was a far from some of his steamier shots:
Make no mistake, Little Waldo has certainly all grown up. What do you think about McIver's "O Holy Night"?

The beloved lesbian twin sisters from Canada offer their whimsical take on the holidays with a cover of "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)."

Madonna, "Santa Baby"
The Material Girl's take on this holiday hit sounds more like a Brooklyn-ese Betty Boop than a sultry Eartha Kitt, yet it somehow still makes our Christmas playlist each year.

A queer dream team of George Michael, Boy George, Holly Johnson of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, and David Bowie join Sting, Bono, Paul McCartney and other '80s greats for the charity group's Christmas single which raised money for famine relief in Ethiopia.
Lady Gaga, "Christmas Tree"
Mother Monster sings "Light me up with me on top, let's falalalalalalala" and "The only place you wanna be is underneath my Christmas tree," leaving us to wonder if this is an X-mas carol or a set of XXX instructions. Either way (or both ways) -- it's campy Christmas fun.

Judy Garland, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"
She may have won our hearts in arguably the most beloved fantasy film of all time, but few gay icons really lived out the emotional turmoil they sang about as much as Judy Garland. Her heartbreaking original rendition of this holiday classic, from 1944's "Meet Me In St. Louis," proves it.
