HBO Max is spreading holiday cheer with the debut of Carrie Underwood’s new music special “My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood.” In the Max Original, Carrie performs a combination of beloved traditional favorites celebrating the joy and hopefulness of the holiday, as well as new original material from her first ever full-length Christmas album 'My Gift, 'which was released earlier this fall.
“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Playtone and HBO Max to bring My Gift to life,” said Carrie. “Just like the album, I hope this special will help bring some much-needed joy and become part of the soundtrack to people’s holiday festivities this year as it streams throughout the season and beyond.”
The special features many heartfelt moments and performances, including a duet with John Legend, singing “Hallelujah,” an original song he co-wrote with Toby Gad, which appears on her 'My Gift 'album. Viewers will also get an inside look behind the scenes of Underwood recording “Little Drummer Boy” with her five-year-old son Isaiah.
“This special is an homage to the classic, timeless holiday specials, highlighting the vocal gifts of the incomparable Carrie Underwood,” says producer Goetzman. “She’s an artist who transcends genres and shows here why audiences love her around the world.”
This is surely a Christmas gift to be enjoyed and put anyone in the Holiday spirit.
