Oxygen�s other guests include R&B artist Toni Braxton and cable�s first full-figured beauty competition winner, Joanne Borgella of Monique�s FAT Chance, who will make her television debut as a singer.

Oxygen will be spreading holiday cheer throughout the televised concert by promoting awareness for Habitat for Humanity�s Women Build Program. The Women Build Program helps Habitat for Humanity International build more homes by involving women and girls in constructing homes and communities.
