How To Watch The 19th Annual A Home For The Holidays Online


For the last 19 years CBS has hosted the musical special called A Home For The Holidays. The purpose of this special is to raise awareness of the very worthy cause of adoption and foster care in the U.S. and to honor the families whose lives have been changed through adoption.

In the United States there are currently over 420,000 children in foster care. The “Children Waiting” segment of the special focuses on the stories of a few children. The aim is to give a face and a voice to these forgotten children by creating a personal profile of their hopes for a “Forever Family.”

In addition to musical performances, this special will share the personal stories of some of the families whose lives have been affected by adoption. If you tune in you’ll hear the stories of the Dennis Family from Norfolk, Virginia, the Fisher Family from Salt Lake City, Utah, the Thompson Family from Poteau, Oklahoma, and the Black Family from Rochester, New York.

This years special will feature performances by:

  • Josh Groban
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Kacey Musgraves, and
  • Kane Brown

A Home For The Holidays airs on Tuesday, Dec. 19 at 8/7c on CBS.
