    Our entire group loved every minute of the show. The duet for “The Prayer” reminded us of Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. O Holy Night was stunning that the Las Vegas singer Daniel Emmet sang. Kinkade paintings paired perfectly with songs that were sung by the very talented singers. This is a must see! best show in the Smoky Mountain area!
