The crooner will spread a little festive cheer in his one-hour "Tony Bennett and Friends" holiday show, with special appearances from Marc Anthony, Romeo Santos, Vincente Fernandes, Thalia and Juan Luis Guerra, all of whom are featured on his latest "Viva Duets" album.

Bennett says, "It has been a heartwarming journey to meet and record with all the artists from the Latin music world and I have been overwhelmed by their generous spirit and musicality. I am truly honored to have been welcomed into this community of artists."

The bilingual concert will also include a collaborative performance of the classic "Silent Night" when it airs on Sunday night.
