This will be the first time artists who took part in the "Why? Because It's Christmas" album will be able to come together to support music people in need.

NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, October 24, 2023 / -- The "Why? Because It's Christmas" concert event will take place in Nashville, TN on December 10 at 3rd and Lindsley (818 3rd Ave S, Nashville, TN 37210), and celebrates cast members of The ‘All New’ Mickey Mouse Club who reunited virtually in 2020 to create the 17-track holiday album, “Why? Because It's Christmas”. The album not only debuted on Billboard at #21, but delivered sonic cheer and financially supported MusiCares, The Brave of Heart Fund, and those directly impacted by COVID-19.

This will be the first time that the talented artists who took part in the album will be able to come together in celebration and song with friends and fans to support MusiCares.

“It was really cool watching everyone rise to the occasion during the pandemic, performing and recording remotely, to make such a wonderful record. But it was kinda bittersweet knowing that we all work so much better when we're actually together. That's what's going to make this show extra special, finally getting to perform together again.” - Tony Lucca (Host and Nashville Native)

The Mickey Mouse Club (MMC) left the airwaves years ago, but its impact still reigns today. Former Mouseketeers are known around the world as the cast included the likes of Oscar-nominee Ryan Gosling, Golden Globe winner Keri Russell, *NSYNC members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, as well as Pop stars Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, En Vogue's Rhona Bennett, independent singer/songwriter Tony Lucca, Hallmark Movie Queen Nikki DeLoach, The Party’s Chasen Hampton and Deedee Magno Hall, and so many more talented artists. While not all of the former cast members participated in the recording of “Why? Because It’s Christmas”, it was a special moment for all of those involved.

This special event will benefit MusiCares, which helps the humans behind music because music gives so much to the world. Offering preventive, emergency, and recovery programs, MusiCares is a safety net supporting the health and welfare of the music community. Founded by the Recording Academy in 1989 as a U.S. based, independent 501(c)(3) charity, MusiCares safeguards the well-being of all music people through direct financial grant programs, networks of support resources, and tailored crisis relief efforts.

“I'm looking forward to connecting with our Mouseke-nation again to support MusiCares. The organization plays such an important role in our industry, and I couldn’t be more proud to lend my voice to amplify its mission.” - Rhona Bennett (En Vogue)

Always in the Club Foundation, which is co-producing this event, was formed with help from former Mouseketeers and more than 3,000 long-time fans of the show. The reunited Mouseketeers launched the Foundation with one vision in mind - to help those who need it most through projects, programs, and outreach campaigns featuring cast members of the now iconic show. To date, Always in the Club Foundation has supported dozens of other non-profits in raising more than $4.5 million to provide cost-free vacations to Disney World for critically ill children, groceries for families facing financial hardships, and to support victims of domestic abuse among other important causes.
