Special Events News by Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. : Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. and iHeartMedia today announced that the annual Empire State Building (ESB) holiday music-to-light show, presented by Kay Jewelers®, will feature Lea Michele's brand-new song "Christmas in New York," from her new album Christmas in The City.

World-renowned lighting artist Marc Brickman designed the light show, which premieres on Thursday, December 19 and will be synced live each night at 9:00 p.m. through Wednesday, December 25 to a broadcast of the song on iHeartRadio's Broadway Channel via iheartradiobroadway.com. Viewers outside of New York City can tune in to watch the show live via Earthcam at https://www.esbnyc.com/earthcam-empire-state-building. A video of the entire show will also be posted on the Empire State Building's YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/esbnyc) immediately following its debut on Thursday, December 19.

"The Empire State Building's annual holiday light show is an iconic part of the holiday landscape in New York City and across the globe," said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, and CEO of ESRT. "This year, we are proud to partner with Kay Jewelers, along with our great partner on all our music-to-light shows, iHeartMedia, as we bring to life Lea Michele's 'Christmas in New York' with our world-famous tower lights."

Kay Jewelers will serve as presenting sponsor of this year's holiday light show, bringing together the world's largest retailer of diamond jewelry and the crown jewel of New York City, the Empire State Building.

"For more than 100 years, Kay Jewelers has been a part of countless holiday moments," said Virginia C. Drosos, Chief Executive Officer of Signet Jewelers, the parent company of Kay Jewelers. "We are thrilled to be presenting this year's Empire State Building holiday light show, one of New York City's most dazzling traditions, as people all around the globe gather to Celebrate Life and Express Love® to kick-off the holiday season."

"Christmas in New York" is a new original track from Lea Michele's first-ever holiday album Christmas in The City. Available everywhere now, Lea Michele's Christmas in The City is an 11-track holiday collection inspired by the singer's fond memories of growing up in New York City. Reuniting with Glee songwriters/producers Adam Anders and Peer Astrom, the album features timeless hits like "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Silent Night," "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" as well as star-studded collaborators handpicked by Lea, including fellow Glee alum Darren Criss, Spring Awakening costar Jonathan Groff and Broadway favorite Cynthia Erivo.

"As someone who was born and raised in New York City, lighting the iconic Empire State Building and having my holiday album be a part of that is a dream come true," said Michele. "Christmas in The City is a love letter to my hometown of NYC, and I couldn't be more honored to share it with the annual lighting tradition."

The ESB music-to-light show is the perfect tree-topper to Empire State Building's months-long celebration featuring classic holiday decorations in the Art Deco lobby, museum-quality displays in the Fifth Avenue lobby windows and special holiday touches in the 34th Street Observatory entrance. Visitors to the iconic landmark during the holiday season also experience surprise appearances by celebrities, a pianist playing a selection of holiday favorites and another year of beloved themed light shows.
