The holiday season is in full swing!
And the iconic Empire State Building is joining in on the fun. The Empire State Realty Trust (ESRT) & iHeartMedia announced the landmark’s annual holiday music-to-light-show earlier this month, and the day has finally come to help put New Yorkers in the holiday spirit!

Choreographed by world-renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman, the brand new light show will feature Carrie Underwood’s new song “Hallelujah” with John Legend, from her first-ever Christmas album My Gift.
The show will premiere TONIGHT, Saturday, December 19 and will be synced live each night at 8 p.m. through Friday, December 25 to a broadcast of the song on iHeartRadio’s Z100 and LiteFM. And even if you can’t see it from your apartment, you can watch the show live via Earthcam on their website here.
“The Empire State Building’s lights are the icon of New York City’s night sky. Our light shows to music attract millions of eyes and hearts — none more popular than our annual holiday light show that has grown to become the anticipated and dazzling display of the holiday season,” said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, President, and CEO of ESRT.
“ESB and iHeartMedia will brighten the holidays in our great city and around the globe via our YouTube channel, remind the world that New York City is alive and kicking, and will be here to welcome back the world for excitement in person in years to come, and as we celebrate Carrie Underwood’s first holiday album with this amazing duet by Carrie and John Legend.”
