The Christmas Tree In Rockefeller Center Is Lit [VIDEO]
It’s official, the Christmas season in New York City is underway. The Tree is Rockefeller is all lit up and the celebration last night was breath taking. I searched and searched for the lighting video and finally found some footage from a cable news show.
The 74-foot-tall Norway spruce was illuminated by 30,000 lights during a ceremony that featured performances by Neil Diamond, Cee Lo Green and Carol King. Justin Bieber and Tony Bennett provided pre-taped performances.
Tens of thousands of people were penned in on the streets surrounding Rockefeller Center, in midtown Manhattan. Most caught glimpses of performances on screens set up on street corners.
