Ok so this is not the original singer, but this is the original singer of the first song ever sang in outer space: "'Jingle Bells' was the first song broadcast from space, in a Christmas-themed prank by Gemini 6 astronauts Tom Stafford and Wally Schirra. While in space on December 16, 1965, they sent this report to Mission Control: 'We have an object, looks like a satellite going from north to south, probably in polar orbit... I see a command module and eight smaller modules in front. The pilot of the command module is wearing a red suit….' The astronauts then produced a smuggled harmonica and sleigh bells and broadcast a rendition of 'ingle Bells.' The harmonica, shown to the press upon their return, was a Hohner "Little Lady", a tiny harmonica approximately one inch long, by 3/8 of an inch wide." That is crazy cool no? no? I think that is so amazing :)!
