Universal CityWalk’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony with the finalists of ‘The Voice’
Hey, guys! I was recently invited to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony at CityWalk and I wanted to share some of the pictures with you.
The event started with Carson Daly coming on stage and inviting Blake Shelton and Adam Levine to join him! I was so excited to see them because neither Blake or Adam had been announced to make an appearance, and since I was in the media area, I was literally right in front of them!! After the crowd went crazy for them, they were on stage for a few minutes and then left.
Carson later came on stage again but this time accompanied by Santa Claus and the top 10 finalists of ‘The Voice’: Chris Jamison, Damien, Matt McAndrew, Anita Antoinette, Ryan Sill, Taylor John Williams, DaNica Shirey, Luke Wade, Craig Wayne Boyd and Reagan James.
All of them proceeded to light the huge and beautiful tree that was next to the 5 Towers stage area. Once the tree was lit, the finalists took the stage to sing one song each. My favorite performance by far was DaNica Shirey’s interpretation of Whitney Houston‘s hit, “I have nothing”! The girl killed it! I love that song and she did an AMAZING job with it! I had a great time and I thank City Walk for their invitation to cover the event.
Make sure you check out CityWalk during the Holiday season as they have decorated it nicely and will also have free concerts at ‘5 Towers’ as well as hourly snowfall at Santa’s Snow Zone. You or your kids can also take pictures with Santa himself aboard his sleigh! Events will take place through Thursday, December 25th. For more info., visit www.CityWalkHollywood.com. Here are the pictures I took at the event! Enjoy!
