Both Danny Gokey and David Archuleta starred on American Idol
PEOPLE can exclusively reveal the music video for “Noche de Paz” (“Silent Night” in Spanish), the two crooners’ Christmas duet. In the peaceful, holiday-themed video, Gokey, 39, and Archuleta, 28, sing in front of a piano in a snowy landscape filled with candles and Christmas trees.
Gokey came in third place on the eighth season of American Idol, while Archuleta was the runner-up on the seventh season.
“David Archuleta’s season on American Idol was the very first season that I ever watched the show,” Gokey tells PEOPLE. “Watching him and those on that season is what inspired me to pursue my journey the following year.”
The singer adds: “I have always loved his voice and was grateful that he joined me on this song. I absolutely loved how it came out.”
“Noche de Paz” is featured on Gokey’s newly-released Christmas album The Greatest Gift.
On the record, Gokey — who was recently nominated for best contemporary Christian music performance/song and best contemporary Christian music album ahead of next month’s Grammys — sings other holiday classics including “Joy To The World” and “Angels We Have Heard On High.”
