Tenor Anthony Kearns to Perform on 'Huckabee' Tonight at 8 p.m. ET
To be Re-broadcast on Sun., December 1 at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET
NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- World-renowned tenor Anthony Kearns will be a featured guest artist on the Fox News Network's popular show, 'Huckabee,' this Saturday, November 30, at 8 p.m. ET and again on Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET. This will be Mr. Kearns' third major appearance on the highly-acclaimed television show.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, host of the weekend show, said: "I'm pleased to welcome Anthony Kearns back to my show to kick off the Christmas season and update me on his projects -- including the release of his new solo album. We love having him -- he's a remarkable talent."
Mr. Kearns made millions of new fans during his debut performance on 'Huckabee' in 2010 with his delivery of "The Lord's Prayer" and "Danny Boy." He performed again on the show in 2011 with a stunning rendition of "Ave Maria" which he dedicated to U.S. military troops.
"It's a particular honor and privilege for me to return to the Governor' television show to help him launch the Christmas season. Christmas has great meaning for me personally -- and I appreciate the opportunity to bring some holiday cheer to his national audience," said Kearns, who will be performing with his long-time accompanist, Patrick Healy.
"Beautiful music of all genres is one of Governor Huckabee's greatest passions -- and we're grateful to him for having Anthony back on the show. He will sing 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,' from the best-selling album Christmas by The Irish Tenors," said Mr. Kearns' publicist, Kirsten Fedewa.
"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" is a traditional Christmas hymn taken from the Gospel of St. Luke when he described the Angels announcing the Birth of Jesus to the shepherds near Bethlehem.
Ms. Fedewa said tonight's interview will include highlights of Kearns' recent projects, including his new CD called, "With a Song in My Heart," and a recent performance for Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for Medal of Honor recipients, among others. (Mr. Kearns' CD can be found here: www.anthonykearnstenor.com)
On Thanksgiving, Mr. Kearns sang "We Three Kings," the title track of his hugely successful holiday album with The Irish Tenors, as a headliner in the 94th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade -- the oldest of its kind in the nation -- in Philadelphia, PA. The show attracted up to one million parade-goers and an estimated televised audience of approximately 12 million on ABC affiliates.
Earlier this week, Kearns was a guest of the radio show, The Mike Huckabee Show, to discuss his performance in the Thanksgiving Day Parade and other projects including the release of his new solo album, "With a Song in My Heart." Listen here: http://bit.ly/1aZn0o1.
