Yolanda expressed how honored she was to be apart of the soundtrack. "It makes me remember why I celebrate Christmas," she says. "I believe music plays an important role in any movie and I think Christmas music puts everybody in a great mood." She goes on to say that, the film is 'authentic' and thinks everyone should see it.
The soundtrack also features original music from mainstream superstars Mariah Carey, Fifth Harmony and A Great Big World. Mariah Carey in fact wrote the Sony Pictures Animation movie's title track "The Star." Notable song contributions were also made by Kirk Franklin, Kelsea Ballerini, Zara Larsson, and Casting Crowns.
