    A Live Performance Of "Love Actually" Is Happening And I Need To See It ASAP

    To me, this song is perfect.

    I think we can all agree that Love Actually is one of the best Christmas movies of all time. (It's impossible to disagree, this is just a fact.)

    (Although, I will acquiesce that this guy ^^^ was a super shitty friend.)

    It's got sexy accents, a kickass cast, and love stories that come in all shapes and sizes. Not to mention, it has a killer soundtrack.

    Seriously, Billy Mack's "Christmas is All Around Us" is catchy as hell and little Joanna's rendition of "All I Want for Christmas Is You" was the perfect song to end the film.

    And now, thanks to Love Actually Live, there's something else for you to get obsessed with. The special holiday production has created a new, original song and it's SO GOOD.

    Set to the original score from the movie, the new song is titled “Love Is Actually All Around.”

    The song is performed by Sean Yves Lessard and Carrie Manolakos, who play the Prime Minister, and Natalie, respectively, along with the entire company, including Rumer Willis, Steve Kazee, and more.

    Singer/songwriter Audra Mae, who wrote the lyrics for the song, told BuzzFeed, "I tried my best to elevate the lyrics so it would bring the beauty to that piece."

    And her message really fits the lyrics, too. Just take a look at the first verse: "Whenever I get down about / The gloomy state of things / I look all around me and I’m / Reminded faith and hope and giving / Come so naturally / No kinder, greater gift in living / Than love, actually."
