INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s become a holiday tradition — some Indianapolis Colts players took some time to sing Christmas carols to hospitalized children.

Andrew Luck, Matt Overton, Anthony Castonzo and Joe Reitz sang to children at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.

“It’s turned into a little bit of a tradition,” Luck said. “I think it’s great when the Colts get out in the community … to give back a little is fun.”

Castonzo said it’s good for the team to bring holiday cheer to families who can’t be home for Christmas.

Luck’s favorite Christmas song is Silent Night.
