Gwen Stefani Brings Christmas Cheer To The iHeartRadio Theater
Gwen Stefani made it feel like Christmas at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank, California on Friday (November 8) when she belted out a collection of festive favorites. The pop icon began the set, which was hosted by Ellen K, with “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” and then moved into “Let It Snow.” However, the seasonal showcase wasn’t only comprised of hits and standards. She also belted out “Cheers For The Elves,” a bonus track from the deluxe edition of her Christmas LP, and ’00s classic “The Sweet Escape.”
In addition to those performances, Gwen also opened up about her affinity for festive fare. “Christmas for me is a magical time of the year,” she revealed. “To be able to be a musical part of people’s tradition and a part of their holiday and their joy in their house, with the songs that I wrote is just my fantasy.” The flawless 50-year-old then spoke about putting You Make It Feel Like Christmas together. “Writing Christmas music is just so different and has a deeper message and it’s so spiritual and it’s so magical.”
