Brett Eldredge Set for NBC’s ‘Christmas in Rockefeller Center’ Special
Brett Eldredge is bringing the holiday cheer a bit early this year. The singer and mega Christmas fan will performer at the Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting ceremony, which airs Dec. 4 via NBC.
Christmas in Rockefeller Center (8PM ET) will feature performances and wrap with the traditional tree lighting ceremony. Chicago, John Legend, Idina Menzel, Lea Michele, Ne-Yo, Gwen Stefani, Straight No Chaser, Derek & Julianne Hough, Skylar Astin and Alex Newell from NBC's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist are scheduled to make appearances, in addition to Miss America 2019, Nia Franklin, and the iconic Radio City Rockettes.

NBC’s Today anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin and Al Roker will host the star-studded ceremony.
This year marks the 87th year of the Rockefeller tree lighting. The 2019 tree — a Norway spruce — will scale 77 feet and be 46-feet wide, weighing 12 tons. After Christmas, the lumber will be donated to Habitat for Humanity and be used to build homes.
It's not clear what songs Eldredge will sing, but chances are they're from his 2016 Christmas album, Glow. Since releasing the album three years ago, Eldredge has been part of numerous holiday festivities, including tours.
