Brenda Lee was just 13 years old when she recorded her enduring seasonal smash 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree'.

It took a few years for the song to become a hit, but over the decades it has returned to the charts over and over, becoming one of the all-time Christmas greats.

And all that's been achieved without a proper music video... until now.

To mark the 65th anniversary of the song, Brenda Lee has put on a Christmas frock and recorded a brand new video for the now-classic standard.

As well as featuring Brenda singing along to the original recording in front of a Christmas tree, the clip also includes the country legend taking part in all sorts of Christmas family fun.
