Top to bottom: LaToya London and the Carolina Opry cast

LaToya London, the American Idol Finalist that joined the cast of The Carolina Opry and Good Vibrations earlier this year, announced that she will be staying through the 2013 Christmas Season. This announcement followed much speculation from fans eager to hear her legendary voice performing their favorite holiday classics.

Featured in this season’s American Idol show as one of “The Three Divas,” LaToya was grouped with the likes of Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson and R&B powerhouse Fantasia Barrino. LaToya will add a dynamic element to the stage of The Carolina Opry Christmas Special this holiday season.

The first nightly Christmas Special on the Grand Strand - and still the grandest of them all, The Carolina Opry Christmas Special has been a family tradition for nearly 30 years. Often called "The Christmas Show of the South," this award-winning holiday production brings the spirit of Christmas to life with music, comedy and dance. The performers on stage aren't the only show, the holiday decorations at The Calvin Gilmore Theater are an attraction in themselves—second to none. When you enter the theater, you enter the embodied spirit of Christmas.

London is currently performing with the award-winning cast of both The Carolina Opry and Good Vibrations nightly at 7:30 pm at The Calvin Gilmore Theater (closed Sundays). The Carolina Opry Christmas Special will run nightly November 1, 2013 through January 4, 2014 at 7:00 pm. Call for full schedule and to book, 800-843-6779 or visit
