“I’m so excited to announce that I’m bringing my album Looking For Christmas to life this holiday season in Musical form,” said Black. “As a huge fan of Christmastime, I’m always thinking of our military families and what they face during the holidays. I’m especially happy to highlight their story with Looking For Christmas.”
Music and lyrics for the show were inspired by Black’s Christmas album of the same name but also includes a few new tunes written especially for the program by Black. The idea for this musical and book were dreamt up and written by Black and James D. Sasser and is directed by Kent Nicholson and produced by 959 Productions.
