  1. Wow! An extremely impressive lineup of performers this year!
    Can’t wait to hear which carols (please give him more than one) they’ve chosen for Cody Simpson to show off the incredible range of his beautiful voice.
    Same goes for Vika & Linda whose voices are straight from the gods.
    Can’t wait for the cast of Phantom as well. Have seen it twice and their voices have given me massive goose bumps every time!
    Casey Donovan could just sing the phone book and knock it out of the park!
    I’m sure Emma Watkins will be another beautiful stand out.
    Each year Carols never fails to put me in the Christmas mood and I’m so excited for this year’s after reading that list of performers.
    Pour me an Espresso Martini now and Merry Christmas David!
