December 21, 2015 at 11:25 AM (PT)
iHEARTMEDIA AC WLTW (106.7 LITE FM )/NEW YORK CITY and the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING are teaming up on the iconic skyscraper's holiday, music-to-light show, premiering TODAY at 7p (ET), playing hourly throughout the week until CHRISTMAS DAY.
The show, designed by lighting designer MARC BRICKMAN, will be synced live each night on the station at 7p (ET) from TODAY through CHRISTMAS EVE (THURSDAY). The landmark building has been celebrating the season by "unwrapping" surprise gifts all month long with an exclusive lineup of special guests and live performances.
The brand-new musical extravaganza will feature chart-topping acapella group PENTATONIX, and their GRAMMY-nominated track, "Dance Of The Sugarplum Fairy," from their #1 holiday album, "That's CHRISTMAS To Me."
The presentation will be visible from various vantage points around NEW YORK CITY and the TRI-STATE area. A video of the entire show will be posted on the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING's YOUTUBE channel immediately following the event. Fans should use #ESBUnwrapped on social media channels to join in.
EMPIRE STATE REALTY TRUST Chairman/CEO ANTHONY E. MALKIN commented, "Through our partnership with iHEARTMEDIA, our signature light shows set to music have become a spectacular sight illuminating the NEW YORK CITY skyline, and our holiday light shows are particular NEW YORK CITY favorites. This year, the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING and iHEARTMEDIA are happy to have GRAMMY-nominated acapella group PENTATONIX share in the holiday spirit with all of NEW YORK CITY, and the world through our aerial video of the show."
iHEARTMEDIA Pres./National Programming Platforms TOM POLEMAN added, "Holiday lights on the EMPIRE STATE BUILDING and CHRISTMAS music on 106.7 LITE FM are NEW YORK holiday traditions. We're excited to partner by syncing our holiday music to the tower lights, creating something special for NEW YORKers while they celebrate the season."
