EXCLUSIVE: American Idol and Sparkle alum Jordin Sparks is set to star in A Christmas Treasure, a new Hallmark Channel original movie. Sparks also will executive produce and Michael Xavier (Shazam!) will co-star in the film which will premiere as part of the network’s Countdown to Christmas programming event. The premiere date is TBD.
In A Christmas Treasure, after opening a 100-year-old time capsule and finding her grandfather’s old journal, Lou (Sparks) questions whether she should move to New York after Christmas to further her writing career or stay in Pine Grove to carry on her family’s local newspaper. Charming chef, Kyle (Xavier), is also at a crossroads, visiting Pine Grove for the holidays. Lou and Kyle have doubts about their futures.
Sparks sings two classic Christmas songs in the movie, covering “This Christmas” and on the piano, “Oh Holy Night.” Her original song from her 2020 Christmas album Cider & Hennessy “Oh, It’s Christmas” will also be part of the movie.
“Christmas is so special to me and I’m thrilled that I get to share this festive movie with you all this year,” said Sparks, “being able to perform one of my original holiday songs and some of my favorite Christmas melodies as part of the movie and joining the Hallmark family is truly a dream come true.”
