Alicia Keys was only 16 years old when she recorded her version of “Little Drummer Boy” for Jermaine Dupri’s 12 Soulful Nights Of Christmas compilation in 1996.

Re-titled “Little Drummer Girl,” Keys was a virtual unknown at the time of the song’s release.

Little did we all know that she’d blow up to become a superstar!
