ABC/Todd AndersonCiara is one of the artists scheduled to appear on the Thursday telecast of ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration.
The “Livin’ It Up” singer says she’ll present a “dance, jam-packed ATL-Christmas” flavored performance of “Jingle Bells” and “Jingle Bell Rock.”
“I’m from Atlanta, so I’m bringing that flavor to Christmas. It’s really fun. It’s a lot of energy,” Ciara says.
She adds that “Jingle Bell Rock” is also a favorite holiday song of hers, and one of her sons.
“I thought I had to put that in there,” she says.
“And, I mean, “dashing through the snow,” “Jingle Bells” in general is awesome. It’s a fun song. It’s a classic one. I went for the ones that I really love and that I’ve always loved.”
As for entertaining fans at Walt Disney World, where the special event takes place, Ciara says the experience itself is “magical. …There’s no better place to be than here for Christmas.”
“It just doesn’t get any more dreamier than this. It’s a very special feeling, so it’s definitely a moment to remember and a special one to be a part of.”
You can watch Ciara on The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration Thursday, November 30 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
Ciara’s also tapped to host the Billboard Women in Music dinner and awards ceremony that same day in Los Angeles, and will host the “Hollywood Party” on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018 on Sunday, December 31.
