LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Melissa Etheridge, Tim McGraw, Gavin Rossdale and Jamie Foxx have agreed to perform during Faith Hill's upcoming U.S. holiday special, CBS said.

"The 10th annual A Home for the Holidays with Faith Hill," a program celebrating the joys of adoption, is to air Dec. 23 on the network.

Kristin Chenoweth, Patricia Heaton, Rene Russo, Martin Short and other celebrities have signed on to present inspirational stories about foster care adoption.

"The musical performances frame several pre-taped story segments which are presented by celebrities who either have their own adoption experiences or are involved with children's issues," CBS said in a news release. "The stories highlight many exceptional American children and families involved in this rewarding process."

To commemorate the annual program's 10th anniversary, foster children featured in past years will be taken back to the show, joined by their adoptive families, the network said.
