The comedic and uplifting Jonathan Slocumb will be emcee'ing the evening alongside Holiday Celebration Club's regular hosts: "Glee" star Bill A. Jones and Martha Taylor LaCroix, entertainer and founder of the Holiday Celebration Club.

This year we have a host of celebrity guests, including film composer Artie Butler, internationally acclaimed violinist Karen Briggs, and producer H.B. Barnum. Tony Cornelius will give a special tribute to his father, Don Cornelius and Soul Train.

 

Judges viewing results from the pre-show Background Singer Workshop include producers Robert Margouleff and Tony Cornelius. Legendary jazz trumpeter and host of jazz veterans' video crowd funding, Nolan Shaheed will also perform during main event.

 

We are also excited to feature talented vocalists, such as LA's popular "Open Mic" host and cabaret singer, Keri Kelsey. Also performing will be Background Singer Workshop Divas Windy Barnes (formerly with Stevie Wonder's "Wonderlove"), Franny McCartney (formerly with Bette Midler's "Harlettes"), and Pam Trotter (who starred in Dreamgirls.)
