Scotty McCreery embodied the true spirit of Christmas last night (Nov. 24) when he performed a concert that included holiday songs from his new album, Christmas With Scotty McCreery, at the Beacon Theater in New York City.
The season 10 American Idol winner announced earlier this week that he would donate a portion of the ticket sales to World Vision’s Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
“Being from North Carolina, I have seen firsthand what hurricanes can do. After seeing the devastation caused by Sandy, I wanted to figure out a way to help,” said Scotty about his decision to turn the NYC concert into a fundraiser, “And given that we have a show at the Beacon Theater the day after Thanksgiving, I thought ‘why not turn that New York show into a benefit?’”
Scotty invited fellow Season 10 Idol, Pia Toscano–a native New Yorker–to perform. Here are Scotty and Pia singing “Let it Snow”
