Overview

The more than 5 million fans who tuned in each day to Rosie O'Donnell's variety show know that music -- along with children and small pets -- is one of the host's big passions. A Rosie Christmas is a collection of all-star duets that pairs O'Donnell, who hass Broadway-influenced vocal style, with the likes of Lauryn Hill ("Little Drummer Boy"), 'N Sync ("Love's in Our Hearts"), Trisha Yearwood ("Santa's on the Rooftop"), and Celine Dion ("God Bless Us Everyone"). The mix of holiday classics and original songs also teams Rosie with Cher, on "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" and Gloria Estefan, on "Gonna Eat for Christmas," as well as such stars of kid-land as Angelica Pickles of The Rugrats ("I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus") and Elmo from Sesame Street ("Do You Hear What I Hear"). O'Donnell is donating her profits to the For All Kids Foundation, which awards grants to more than 300 nonprofit organizations that support underserviced children -- keeping the holiday spirit alive all year long.

O'Donnell teams up with Lauryn Hill for "Little Drummer Boy," performs "White Christmas" with Elton John and duets on "Love's In Our Hearts" with N'Sync. Children's favorites like Angelica from Rugrats and Elmo The Muppet also sing with Rosie on tracks like "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and "Do You Hear What I Hear."
