Based on the beloved novel by Jason F. Wright, CHRISTMAS JARS shares the story of Hope Jensen, a reporter who uncovers the remarkable secret behind a holiday phenomenon: money-filled glass jars anonymously given to people in need. The New York Times bestseller has created a new holiday tradition that has changed the lives of people in their time of need, all over the country.
BYUtv is known for its great programming, and this holiday season is no different!
In this exclusive special, Brigham Young University’s premiere male a capella group Vocal Point presents song and dance in a festive holiday night. BYU Vocal Point is also joined by YouTube singing sensations Peter Hollens and Madilyn Paige, as well as NBC’s The Voice competitor Ryan Innes. Performances include “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly,” “Sleigh Ride,” “He is Born,” and more.
BYUtv has three phenomenal voices to help kick off the Christmas season as the first of two “Christmas Under the Stars” specials airs in November 2016. The show stars Grammy Award-winning singer Amy Grant who is joined by Michael W. Smith and newcomer Jordan Smith, who appeared on–and subsequently won–Season 9 of NBC’s “The Voice.”
Premiering Thanksgiving day (November 24) at 6 PM MT is BYUtv’s original TV film, Winter Thaw. Based on Leo Tolstoy’s short story, “Martin the Cobbler,” and starring John Rhys-Davies (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Lord of the Rings), this holiday special lovingly tells the story of personal transformation and forgiveness.
