ABOUT THE SONG
MC: I have some things coming up for Christmas, shockingly, but I love Christmas [Laughs]. We're doing this song called "The Star." It's a movie called The Star with Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry.
Q: We heard that you do have two Christmas films coming out. Can you talk about the other one?
MC: Yeah, there's two, because one is for Universal Pictures Animation. I did a book called All I Want for Christmas Is You, so it's an animated version of the book, you know? There's a new song that I wrote for that [Lil Snowman], and the other one is for The Star. I'm very excited about that because it's a big movie.

MC: “They’re the best [Dem Babies] and they actually read very well and they have yet to see the animated film in it’s entirety, although my daughter is singing background vocals on one of the new songs on the soundtrack called Lil Snowman.
Q: So you’ve got the twins working, I like this!
MC: “They asked me if they could do this - they like it! They’re singing background vocals on a new song I did for another movie called The Star, and they’re singing the song with me.”
