Christmas in NYC

Christmas in NYC is truly magical. I love to go visit all of the amazing holiday window displays, and there is always free entertainment to enjoy.

Lord & Taylor had their window unveil with a song from Broadway favorite, the adorable Kristin Chenoweth, currently performing in Promises, Promises with Sean Hayes. She sang a lovely version of Silver Bells,  backed by the Youth Choir of New York. She was great with the kids, posing for pictures, really bringing them into the performance. Those kids were terrific, and it was like a cool episode of Glee.

John Legend performed at Bloomingdales window reveal and he wowed the crowd with seven songs, including fan favorites Green Light, Save Room for My Love, Ordinary People, Christmas classics The Christmas Song, and This Christmas, as well as two songs from his new CD, Wake Up! and the song he wrote for the documentary Waiting for Superman called Shine On. Legend is very handsome, and he has many fans here in the city. 
Opus 118, a group of student musicians from the Harlem School of Music, played some lovely holiday music before Legend came on. They were awesome, and I loved their mashup of Santa Claus is Coming to Town/Jingle Bells.
