The Sunrise gang are going prime time
Seven’s David Koch, Samantha Armytage, Natalie Barr and Mark Beretta will co-host the 2014 Woolworths Carols in the Domain.
The event will showcase performances from Dancing With The Stars judge Adam Garcia, Christine Anu, Georgie Parker, Lee Kernaghan, The McClymonts, Taylor Henderson, Nathaniel, Paulini and The Wiggles. 2014 X Factor winner Marlisa will be making her Carols debut while last year’s X Factor champion Dami Im and pop superstar Samantha Jade will also take to the stage.
The Christmas spirit will be in full swing with performances from The Salvation Army Choir, Australian Girls Choir and the Jubilation Gospel Group. More all-star performers will be announced over the coming weeks and some of the artists are set to perform an exciting supergroup on the night.
This year marks the first year a team of four will co-host the event, and Kochie said he couldn’t be more thrilled. “I absolutely love Christmas so I’ve always wanted to host Carols. It’s going to be a terrific night – and I’ll have all four of my grandchildren there at an age when they can really appreciate it,” he added.
Sam said: “I’m usually in the country for Christmas so I’m really excited about having a city Christmas with everyone at Carols! And who doesn’t love a big group sing-along?”
Nat said: “I’ve been going to Carols since I moved to Sydney 20 years ago. It signals the end of my year, the beginning of Christmas and a truly beautiful night to spend with family and friends. There is nothing like that sea of candles trickling through the Domain.”
Beretts said: “I’ve watched Carols for so long – it’s one of the best feel-good events of the year with an enormous crowd. Everyone just loves Carols – to have the opportunity to be part of the team and sing along with everyone up close is a great thrill.”
Woolworths Carols in the Domain is proudly presented by Disney and will be staged on Saturday 20 December at The Domain, Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney.
