Billy Porter Twirls Into The Holidays ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’

Billy Porter twirls into the season with his festive, upbeat take on the holiday classic, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

The track, one of Billy’s favorite Christmas songs, and produced by Justin Tranter (Britney Spears, Camilla Cabello, Justin Bieber etc.), is a cheery, upbeat bop for Billy fans as we dance into the holidays.

“I grew up in the church, I’m a choir kid, so I have a deep love of Christmas music,” said the Grammy/Emmy/Tony Award-winner. “I know the holidays can be tough for a lot of people, but I always want to land on joy so I put this jaunty spin on the classic hoping it will infuse a little mirth into everyone’s season.”

Billy’s previous holiday releases include his stirring, evocative take on “O Holy Night” from the Rosie O’Donnell Christmas album and the 2019 duet “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” with Tony Award winner Idina Menzel (Wicked, RENT).

Billy will continue celebrating the holiday season this year with a performance at the National Christmas Tree Lighting airing on CBS December 5th.

Last month, Billy released “Children,” his anthemic debut single for Island Records UK/ Republic Records.

Speaking about his return to music Billy says:

“Music is my first love. When I first put out commercial music in 1997, the industry was not ready for all this Black Boy Joy! But luckily the world has caught up. I could not be more thrilled to entrust this next chapter of my music career to the Island/Republic team. Make way children! Daddy’s back.”
