Tuesday, December 1, 2009
WASHINGTON -- The carols around the National Christmas Tree are going to have some serious star power this year.
Entertainers Sheryl Crow and Common are scheduled to perform at the tree lighting ceremony Thursday near the National Mall. Singers Jordin Sparks, Ray LaMontagne and Celtic Woman, and jazz musicians Brad Mehldau and Joshua Redman also will join the stage.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will help light the tree.
