Harry Connick, Jr. and Seal Join New York Tree Lighting Ceremony


Harry Connick, Jr., Seal and Train are getting into the festive spirit after signing up to perform at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony in New York City.

Moana actress/singer Auli’i Cravalho has also been added to Wednesday’s (29Nov17) line-up, joining previously-announced artists Gwen Stefani, Brett Eldredge, Jennifer Nettles, Pentatonix, and Leslie Odom, Jr., reports People.com.

The annual event has become a huge tourist attraction over the years, with this year’s (17) Norway Spruce tree from Pennsylvania set to be decked out in more than 50,000 multi-coloured lights, with a huge Swarovski star topping the decorations.

Bond girl Naomie Harris recently helped to get the Big Apple’s Christmas celebrations underway by showcasing the Swarovski Star, which weighs 500 pounds and features over 25,000 sparkling crystals.
