CHICAGO – It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays as Macy’s continued a Chicago tradition with the 103rd Great Tree Lighting on Nov. 6, 2010. On hand to lead the ceremony was “American Idol” runner up and singer Katherine McPhee. She was joined by Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley.

McPhee has a new Christmas CD that recently released called “Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You”. She serenaded the tree-lighting audience that gathered at Macy’s on State Street in Chicago. McPhee, Daley and Macy’s President/CEO Terry Lundgren pushed the switch together to light up the holiday season.
