Overview

In this holiday-themed musical extravaganza, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir teams up with Grammy-award winning chanteuse Natalie Cole and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough, plus a full orchestra and a dance ensemble, for an homage to Christmas and everything it represents. Selections - many sung by Cole with the orchestra and choir backing her up - include "The Holly and the Ivy," "Caroling, Caroling," "Grown-Up Christmas List," and "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." The program also interpolates two readings - one by McCullough ("American Christmas Memories: The Story of a Cherished Carol and a Beloved Song") and another by Natalie Cole that finds her reading from St. Luke, Chapter 2.
