A trio of brothers from Edmonton will be ending 2017 on a high note – performing at Times Square, New York City on New Year’s Eve.
The Melisizwe Brothers – Zacary James, Seth James and Marc James – won the honour after winning Showtime at the Apollo Christmas, hosted by Steve Harvey, which aired Thursday night.
The brothers sang “O Holy Night” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” as part of the competition.
In a cell phone video shot by their father Mark James, The Melisizwe Brothers perform Santa Claus is Coming to Town:
“Being on the Apollo – [it] was such an appreciation to be there. Meeting Steve Harvey and all the other contestants. We’d love to go back there to perform again,” said Zacary.
