TBN’s Got Talent This Christmas Season with Singing Sensation Bianca Ryan on December 17th & 23rd
LOS ANGELES (December 11, 2009) – Trinity Broadcasting Network’s (TBN) faith-based programming is a favorite with American audiences and millions of viewers across six continents. This Christmas season, TBN’s Bianca Ryan Christmas Special will delight audiences with America's Got Talent winner, singer Bianca Ryan.
In June 2006, when Ryan was just eleven years old, she wowed both the audience and judges with her audition solo on the first season of America’s Got Talent. Her extraordinary voice stole the show, and Ryan eventually took home the million-dollar prize.
Earlier this month, Ryan released her latest EP, True Meaning of Christmas. The TBN Christmas special complements Ryan’s holiday EP, as well as marks the beginning of the Christmas season. The special will air throughout the season on TBN stations worldwide.
“Ryan has the voice of an angel,” says Susan Zahn, Christian marketing expert and founder of America's fastest growing faith-based PR firm, WDC Media. “It’s astonishing that at just fifteen years of age, she can bring so much heart and soul to everything she does. There’s no doubt about it…Ryan soars with the angels. That’s why TBN is thrilled to have such an awe-inspiring singer on the network twice this Christmas season.”
TBN’s Bianca Ryan Christmas Special features Ryan singing traditional Christmas classics as well as original Christmas songs. The last time Ryan hosted a Christmas special on TBN she reflected fondly on how she used to sing in her hometown church choir every Christmas.”
“Whenever I hear this song I think of memories of when I used to sing in the choir at my church on Christmas Eve,” says Ryan, prior to thrilling the audience with her rendition of O Holy Night. “I can feel the chill of the cold night, and I can even smell the burning of the fireplaces. This was the night that Jesus Christ was born, and salvation was born on this night. Indeed, it was a very holy night.”
This year, the Bianca Ryan Christmas Special will air Thursday, December 17, from 1:30AM to 2:00AM, and again on Wednesday, December 23, from 10:00PM to 10:30PM. For scheduling details go to http://www.tbn.org/watch-us/broadcast-schedule.
The True Meaning of Christmas EP features Ryan singing a combination of classics and original Christmas songs such as The Christmas Song, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and When Christmas Comes to Town. One of the EP’s original songs – True Meaning of Christmas – is a moving duet with pop gospel performer Brent Jones.
Bianca Ryan was born in Philadelphia. After winning America's Got Talent in 2006, she soon released her self-titled CD, which made it to number 57 on Billboard’s 200. Later that year, she released her Christmas Everyday! EP. Ryan is currently working on various film, TV, and soundtrack projects, and has been touring the United States, Austria, and Switzerland.
