“This year has been difficult for so many. It is my hope that this new song about the splendor of Macy’s 34th Street window displays will help rekindle the joy of the season in the hearts of New Yorkers and kindred spirits around the world,” said Wexford native, U.S.-based, Kearns.

“Macy’s famed holiday window displays, anchored by their internationally televised Thanksgiving Day Parade, have been a staple of the holiday season, capturing the imaginations of children (and adults) throughout the world,” he said.

"Kearns is accompanied by Niall Kinsella (piano), Colin Farrell (fiddle and low whistle) and the choir of St. Joseph’s Girls National School (Finglas West, Dublin), creating a nostalgic tune that will tug on heartstrings,” said Kearns’ publicist, Kirsten Fedewa.

Lyrics for “Macy’s Window (Christmas in New York)” were created by Brendan Graham, an Irish songwriter and novelist known for winning the Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland twice, with the songs “Rock 'n' Roll Kids" and "The Voice." Graham is most known for writing the lyrics to “You Raise Me Up,” which became an international hit covered by many famous artists including Kearns and American singer Josh Groban.

Kearns said he will debut the new song during a livestream Christmas concert with The Irish Tenors, available to world-wide audiences on December 23, and 27. An initial performance, held at the residence of the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland in Dublin, was held on December19. For ticket information visit here.
