"I was delighted to perform 'Silver Bells' for Governor Huckabee's Christmas show. He has become a great friend over the years, and it was my privilege to work with the talented Tre' Corley and the Governor's fantastic band," said Mr. Kearns.
Said Governor Huckabee: "I'm absolutely delighted to have Anthony Kearns on my show as a final prelude to Christmas. He nearly burned down Branson with his rendition of 'O, America' last Fourth of July The response before the live audience was absolutely overwhelming and authentic. The crowd loved Anthony this time as well. He is indeed favorite America's tenor."
This was Mr. Kearns' fifth television appearance with former AR Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee, and his second on Governor Huckabee's new highly-acclaimed television show on TBN.
The show was taped before a live studio audience last month in Hendersonville, TN at the Governor's beautiful new studio theater.
Now living in the U.S.,Mr. Kearns is a member of The Irish Tenors, with whom he has a dozen CDs, many of which went Gold, Platinum and Double-Platinum. Kearns made millions of new fans after his debut performance on 'Huckabee' in 2010 with his delivery of "The Lord's Prayer" and "Danny Boy." He performed again on the show in 2011 with a stunning rendition of "Ave Maria" which he dedicated to U.S. military troops.
Following Mr. Kearns' first appearance on his show, Governor Huckabee said that Anthony's performance "generated among the best feedback that I've seen about one of our musical guests."
Since then, Mr. Kearns has performed for the world's most prominent audiences including Pope Francis I and his fourth American President, President Trump - as well as in several prominent venues, from the NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT at the U.S. Capitol on PBS, to the National Concert Hall in Dublin to the John F. KENNEDY Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. Earlier this year, he performed at the invitation of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) at the U.S. Capitol for 100 bipartisan members of Congress and other distinguished guests.
"Mr. Kearns is a respected musical ambassador on both sides of the Atlantic," said Kirsten Fedewa, Mr. Kearns' publicist and president of Kirsten Fedewa & Associates, L.L.C, who arranges Mr. Kearns' celebrity appearances.
Ms. Fedewa noted that Mr. Kearns recently sang at the 2018 Breeders Cup in Louisville, KY -- and at the 96th National Christmas Tree Lighting at the Ellipse (President's Park) in Washington, D.C., among other high-profile events.
"Anthony began as the youngest member of the PBS super-stars, The Irish Tenors, with whom he has enjoyed an incredible collaboration. He has since expanded this role in his solo career. It was wonderful to bring him together with my good friend, Governor Huckabee, for this gorgeous Christmas special," Fedewa said.
