The special features the lighting of the iconic Christmas tree in Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.
Bon Jovi will be performing his new song tilted "Unbroken" which is featured in the Netflix veteran documentary To Be of Service.

John Legend, Gwen Stefani, Chicago, Idina Menzel, Lea Michele, Ne-Yo, Derek and Julianne Hough, Straight No Chases, Skylar Astin and Alex Newell from NBC's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist will also be performing before the lighting of the tree.
