The Manager - The Reason We Celebrate Christmas
Walk thru the red Arches
The Music in the show contains songs from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, David Foster, Disney, Go Fish (a Christian rock group), Louis Armstrong, ManHeim Steamroller, Michael Jackson, Michael W. Smith, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and Whitney Houston, One of the songs, Christmas With A Capital C by Go Fish, talks about the true meaning of Christmas. The song emphasizes that
this is the Christmas season, not the "Holiday" season. It reminds us that the reason we celebrate is because of the birth of Christ.
Our feature song this year is Hallelujah Chorus by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. During the beginning of this song you will hear the story of the birth of Christ as told by the children of Crossroads Community Church. We hope this story reminds you of the reason why we celebrate Christmas.
During Michael Jackson's "We Are The World", you will hear Christmas greetings from people in 20 different countries in their own language. It is a reminder that no matter what our race, religion or national origin, Christmas is the time of year when Christians come together to celebrate the birth of Christ.
During "The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston, you will hear special stories as told by children. As adults, we should remember that time spent with family is a child's most treasured gift.
You can listen to "The Greatest Love of All" by clicking on the play button below.
