ABC/Image Group LAFor the second year in a row, Ciara is hosting the Hollywood Party portion of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve this Monday night. As she prepares for the show, Ciara fondly remembers her favorite New Year’s Eve was the first time she brought in the new year with husband Russell Wilson, before they married in 2016.
“It was me, him and our son Future and I just remember that being a very sweet moment in my life,” Ciara tells ABC Radio. “It just kinda symbolized so many different things. It just was a very special time and we all just danced together and it was pretty sweet.”
In addition to hosting, the “Level Up” singer is also performing at the Hollywood Party. Ciara is proud to look back and see how her career has grown from sitting at home enjoying the annual show.
“I think in my mind and reflect on the stages, from watching Dick Clark New Year’s Eve to actually performing on the show and then actually co-hosting on the show and then now co-hosting and performing,” she says.
Ella Mai will be among the artists joining the Grammy winner at The Hollywood Party. Ciara says it will be a special show.
“It’s pretty cool, it’s definitely a lot to look forward to and especially it being my second year, I’m more familiar with the environment,” she says. “It’s just starting to feel, like, really good and comfy and I’m excited about this evening.”
Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, featuring Ciara hosting the Hollywood Party, kicks off at 8 p.m. ET Monday on ABC.
