NBC Today anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker will host the annual Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center event without Matt Lauer this year. (He was dismissed from the network after a misconduct review earlier today.) The good news is, Lauer won’t be missed thanks to all of the star-studded performances on stage in front of the 75 ft. tree. Harry Connick Jr., Gwen Stefani, The Tenors and Auli’i Cravalho, are among those who will sing holiday songs.
Auli’i Cravalho is the 17-year-old from Hawaii who is the voice behind Disney’s Moana. The talented teen has been busy since “How Far I’ll Go” (see link/image above) became a hit. She’s making her on-camera debut in a new musical drama TV series Rise on NBC, which is set to premiere on March 13, 2018. She plays Lillette Suarez, a student at a famed theater high school based on the real Harry S. Truman High School in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Rosie Perez and Josh Radnor (Ted on How I Met Your Mother) also star. The live broadcast of Christmas in Rockefeller Center will begin at 8pm on NBC.

Congratulations to my insanely talented cast, filmmakers and home studio of DISNEY. Most importantly, THANK YOU FANS.
