ADELAIDE’S SEALINK TRAVEL GROUP CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT EVENT TO GO AHEAD WITH INTIMATE VIRTUAL SPIN
In 2020, we need festive Christmas cheer more than ever before, which is all the more reason why the cancellation of so many cherished Christmas events has been such a shame. But like with so many things in 2020, there’s always a PIVOT, and this year’s Carols by Candlelight are no exception.
VIRTUAL CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT
The much-loved Christmas concert is adapting to the times of 2020, with a virtual celebration featuring performances from across Australia to be broadcast on Sunday December 13 on the Seven Network’s video on-demand service, 7plus.
7NEWS FAVOURITES & ALL STAR PERFORMANCES
It may not be at Elder Park like previous years, but Adelaide families will be happy to see 7NEWS favourites Rosanna Mangiarelli, Mark Soderstrom and Amelia Mulcahy, who are thrilled to be returning to co-host this year’s virtual event.
An all-star list of performers has been confirmed, with the likes of Dami Im, Troy Cassar-Daley, Isaiah Firebrace, Annie Jones and Amber Lawrence to headline the SeaLink Carols by Candlelight. One other iconic Aussie artist is still yet to be announced… so watch this space!
“Christmas is such a special time of the year and I feel privileged to be involved in the first ever SeaLink Carols by Candlelight virtual event! It will be a new Carols experience for me, but at least we still get the opportunity to come together in a different way,” says Dami, who won The X Factor in 2013 and represented Australian in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
