Veteran singer Tony Bennett is set to become the first non-Latin artist to land a top Tv special on Spanish-language network Univision.
The crooner will spread a little festive cheer in his one-hour Tony Bennett and Friends holiday show, with special appearances from Marc Anthony, Romeo Santos, Vincente Fernandes, Thalia and Juan Luis Guerra, all of whom feature on his latest Viva Duets album.
Bennett says, "It has been a heartwarming journey to meet and record with all the artists from the Latin music world and I have been overwhelmed by their generous spirit and musicality. I am truly honoured to have been welcomed into this community of artists."
The bilingual concert will also include a collaborative performance of festive classic Silent Night when it airs in the U.S. on Sunday night (09Dec12).
