A musical 'Christmas night at the Rockefeller Center'



Hey everybody, this news is going to make your day rock. Christina Aguilera, Sting, Bette Midler, Lionel Richie, Sarah McLachlan, Enya, John Legend, Martina Mcbride, and Taylor Hicks will light up the stage on November 29, 2006, Wednesday, during the 74th annual Christmas tree lighting extravaganza at the Rockefeller center, New York which will be telecast on NBC. The power packed torrid performances by these renowned musicians and singers around the beautifully decorated majestic Christmas tree are sure to draw in large crowds. I am planning to be a part of the same, what about you?
The tradition of the Rockefeller Christmas tree can be traced back to the Great Depression era. First erected in 1933, the tree was decorated with 700 lights and placed in front of the RCA building,now known as the GE building. With the inauguration of the outdoor ice skating ring pond in 1936, millions of New Yorkers and tourists flock to this awesome locale every year. NBC- TV televised the tree lighting in 1951 on “The Kate Smith Show” and they have been handling the telecast since then.
So get set for that zooming adrenaline boost this year with some mind numbing performances at this amazing musical night.
