HOORAY FOR HOLIDAYS
“Hooray for Holidays” celebrates the season with the Chorus singing over twenty timeless holiday melodies from the golden age of cinema’s Meet Me in St. Louis, White Christmas, and Mame to contemporary classics The Polar Express, The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Love Actually. The program will feature standards from the Great American Songbook to hits made famous by pop icons Bruce Springsteen, The Beach Boys, and Wham! Los Angeles' favorite holiday tradition will be more special this year as GMCLA is joined by five-time Emmy Award winner and Grammy nominee Wayne Brady. With dance numbers and a few surprises in store, “Hooray for Holidays” will surely be something to shout about!
ABOUT OUR SPECIAL GUEST
The featured guest artist will be award-winning television and Broadway star Wayne Brady (Whose Line Is It Anyway, Kinky Boots), an incredibly versatile entertainer and current host of CBS Television’s Let’s Make a Deal. Wayne has earned four Daytime Emmy Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award and garnered a Grammy nomination for his rendition of Sam Cooke’s venerable classic, “A Change is Gonna Come.” He has also appeared in Broadway productions of Chicago, Kinky Boots, and Freestyle Love Supreme.
