Home for the Holidays is a seasonal revue featuring vibrantly talented performers singing an array of holiday classics. Among the performers are three winners of major singing competitions: Candice Glover, who won the 12th season of American Idol, Josh Kaufman, who won the sixth season of NBC’s The Voice, and Bianca Ryan, who won the first season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent at the age of 11.
Home for the Holidays on Broadway Background
The host of the evening is Kaitlyn Bristowe, who starred in the eleventh season of The Bachelorette, in addition to serving as a contestant on the nineteenth season of The Bachelor. Captivating television audiences with her wry sense of humor, Bristowe was the third runner-up on The Bachelor, and returned to the lead part of The Bachelorette, ultimately choosing her husband Shawn Booth.
After winning American Idol, Candice Glover released her debut album “Music Speaks” in February 2014, featuring the single “I Am Beautiful,” which made it into the Billboard Hot 100.
Since winning The Voice, Josh Kaufman, who was the oldest winner of that show at age 38, made his Broadway debut as Pippin in Diane Paulus’ revival, playing the role for the show’s final few months from October 31, 2014 to its closing on January 4, 2015.
When she won America’s Got Talent at age 11, Bianca Ryan has come out with several holiday albums, including “Christmas Everyday” in 2006 and “True Meaning of Christmas” in 2009. Additional performers for Home for the Holidays include Kaitlyn Bristowe, Danny Aiello, Evynne Hollens and Peter Hollens.
