Detroit’s top celebrities and musicians are joining together for charity this holiday season, lending their time and talent to “Christmas in Detroit,a holiday CD set benefiting the homeless and the needy in the Metro-Detroit area. Christmas in Detroit is a unique 3-CD collection of 42 amazing songs by Detroit artists with recordings of both original material and classic holiday favorites.
