With Christmas right around the corner, Jimmy Fallon recruited the Roots, Paul McCartney and the voice cast of the upcoming film Sing – including Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson and Tori Kelly – for an a cappella rendition of “Wonderful Christmastime.”

The song itself was originally recorded by McCartney in 1979 for his solo project McCartney II and has since been become a modern Christmas standard.

For more Tonight Show shenanigans, watch Fallon and The Roots recreate Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” using toy instruments.
