TouchTunes Touts Gaga Holiday
Pop diva Lady Gaga’s Thanksgiving television special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving, aired Nov. 24. The program, which featured guest appearances from Katie Couric, Art Smith and Tony Bennet, gave an intimate look at the superstar’s life and music-making process. On the show, Gaga performed stripped-down, acoustic versions of tracks from her sophomore studio album, "Born This Way," including the smash hits “You and I” and “The Edge of Glory.” The special also included performances of classic Christmas songs “White Christmas” and “Orange Colored Sky.” Praised by critics for its sincerity and authenticity, the television special was watched by almost 6 million viewers, becoming ABC’s best-rated Thanksgiving special in five years. On Nov. 22, Lady Gaga released a four-song EP of tracks performed on the special through Interscope Records, titled "A Very Gaga Holiday." During the month of December, TouchTunes will promote "A Very Gaga Holiday" across its fleet of digital jukeboxes nationwide through Christmas Day.
