The holiday season officially kicks off when the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center is lighted. The live event is hosted by NBC Today anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker, (Matt Lauer will not be present as scheduled due to misconduct reports which led to his dismissal from the network earlier in the day). A number of entertainers will perform in front of the tree including country star Jennifer Nettles, a cappella group Pentatonix, pop diva Gwen Stefani, and The Tenors.
The Tenors currently consists of singers Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters and Clifton Murray. The group, which used to be called the Canadian Tenors, are known for singing operatic pop songs. Their latest album Christmas Together (see link above) is their sixth studio album. The live broadcast of Christmas in Rockefeller Center will begin at 8pm on NBC.
