Among the songs that will be heard are five performed by the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra (Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Jingle Bells, Campana sobre Campana, Gatatum and A Tambourine Sounds), by Two Steps from Hell (Never back Down), Javián, Alex, David Bustamante and Academia OT with Rosana (At Christmas) and the festive classic from Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas is You.
