Dru Hill, Babyface, Mary J. Blige, Kirk Franklin To Spread Holiday Cheer For Christmas

Dru Hill, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Mary J. Blige and Kirk Franklin & the Family are among the artists who have agreed to appear at "Soul Train's" inaugural "Christmas Starfest" being held on November 24.

Hosted by Natalie Cole, Patti LaBelle and Brian McKnight, the show will feature artists performing their favorite Christmas-themed songs and will be broadcast live from the Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, California.

Babyface will sing "Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer," Blige and radio personality Angie Martinez will duet on "Christmas in the City," and Kirk Franklin & the Family are set to perform "The Night That Christ Was Born." The hosts will also step up to the mic with Kirk Franklin and his Nu Nation Choir for the show's finale, "Silent Night."

Babyface and McKnight will both be using the appearance to promote their respective holiday releases, as both "Christmas with Babyface" and McKnight's "Bethlehem" arrived in stores last month.
