Cher Set to Close Out Macy’s Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade

Despite this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade being positively stuffed with performers, the annual holiday celebration fit one more musician into its roster — the Goddess of Pop herself.

On Wednesday (Nov. 1), the company revealed that pop superstar Cher will be joining the list of musicians performing at the live and televised event. The “Believe” singer will close out the official show and appear towards the end of the broadcast, where Santa arrives in his sleigh, marking the official beginning of the Christmas season.


Previously announced performers include Jon Batiste, ENHYPEN, Brandy, David Foster and Katharine McPhee, En Vogue, Pentatoinx, Chicago, Paul Russell, Bell Biv DeVoe, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, Ashley Park, Jesse James Decker, Paul Russell, Amanda Shaw and Alex Smith and Manuel Turizo.

Cher’s addition to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade comes on the heels of two releases for the star: Believe‘s forthcoming 25th anniversary re-release on Nov. 3, and her first-ever Christmas album, Christmas, released Oct. 20. While Cher has not yet confirmed which of her hits she’ll to perform during the broadcast, a new holiday single has a chance of receiving a live debut to potentially ring in the Christmas season at the parade’s end.

“They’re not ‘Christmas Christmas’ songs, OK, they’re just great songs,” Cher said of her recent holiday release in an interview with Billboard. “And I never say that because I almost never like what I do. But I mean people love it and I’m happy. I’m so particular, but I love the songs and everyone who hears them loves them.”

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air on NBC from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 pm ET.
