*Colors of Christmas is a peerless blend of holiday favorites and chart-topping hits performed by vocal titan Peabo Bryson and some of the absolute best R&B and pop vocalists who have ever walked the planet.

In two days, we’ll have to say “Colors of Christmas HAS BEEN a peerless blend…”, as this is the show’s final year.

Since 1993, Bryson has anchored the show, and was joined that first year by Patti Austin, Roberta Flack, and Jeffrey Osborne.   The program delivered sterling performances year after yuletide year, by a phenomenal group of artists including James Ingram, CeCe Winans, Ruben Studdard, and Jennifer Holiday.

Oleta Adams, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr., and BeBe Winans will take the stage on December 14 and 15 at San Francisco’s Davies Hall, with Bryson and the San Francisco Symphony.

“We have always enjoyed the opportunity to sing our hits as well as celebrate the Christmas season,” McCoo told me by phone. “Christmas is a very special time of year, and it’s important to our faith.”

“Colors of Christmas also gives us a chance to see and fellowship with artists that we know very well, but aren’t able to see much because of our schedules,” Davis added. “It’s a wonderful time of camaraderie. The show also gives us a chance to sing God’s praises.”

Over the last three decades, very few have sung God’s praises more successfully than gospel superstar BeBe Winans, who is new to the Colors of Christmas lineup this year.
