The holidays are coming, and TheÂ Citadel Outlets kicked off the season with their 15th Annual Tree Lighting Concert in Los Angeles, California earlier this month (November 5).
The show started off with John Lindahl taking the stage with some original music and an amazing cover of “Rock Your Body.” Host Brian Justin Crum made two touching tributes — one forÂ Prince by singing “Purple Rain,” and one for Christina Grimmie, who was murdered in June and performed there last year. It was absolutely beautiful!
Following LindahlÂ andÂ CrumÂ wasÂ Before You Exit. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen the boys performing on a stage, and the girls in the audience truly missed them. Connor, Riley, and Toby sang their popular hits “Model,” “Suitcase,” and “When I’m Gone” and received nothing but positive feedback from everyone in attendance.
After Before You Exit,Â OliviaÂ HoltÂ took the stage to perform. Fans were able to get a taste of what she performed on herÂ Rise of a Phoenix TourÂ before she even hit the road! The 19-year-old singerÂ sang hits from her new EP, Olivia, including “Phoenix,” “History,” and “What You Love.” She even sang her throwback hit “Had Me at Hello” from Girl vs Monster!
The show ended with a special appearance by Santa Claus and the lighting of the worldâ€™s largest live cut Christmas Tree. The tree was covered with more than 20,000 ornaments and 18,000 LED lights!Â
Celeb SecretsÂ had the opportunity to catch up with Olivia moments before she performed onstage. In our interview, the singer and actress talked about how she has transitioned into becoming an artist and what she’s looking forward to this holiday season. Watch the full interview with Olivia below and be sure to catch theÂ 15th Annual Citadel Outlets Tree Lighting ConcertÂ on December 11th on FOX 11 Los Angeles. Check local listings for air times.
