Spend The Holidays With The CBS Shows You Love

'Tis the season for entertaining, and CBS has been spending time with some of the biggest stars. We've still got two huge specials this year, and you'll want to make sure these are part of your 2016 holiday plans.

Friday, Dec. 23:

A Home For The Holidays
Mark your calendars for the 18th annual A Home For The Holidays on Friday, Dec. 23 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access. A Home For The Holidays is returning to CBS for its 18th year, providing more uplifting stories about family and adoption. This time the one-hour annual special will feature blockbuster performances by Miranda Lambert, Alessia Cara, Rachel Platten, and more.

Over the course of this one hour special, you'll meet four sets of adopted children whose dreams were fulfilled with a "Forever Family" in towns from Tennessee to California. These are powerful stories of siblings kept together, military heroes, and children who thrived thanks to the power of love. Along with their uplifting tales, you'll also be treated to musical performances by Miranda Lambert, Alessia Cara, and Rachel Platten.

Across the United States, there are more than 420,000 children currently in foster care. The show will reveal their hopes and dreams, and how you can help through the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (established in 1992 by the iconic founder of Wendy's) and the Children's Action Network (created in 1990 to increase adoptions from foster care).

The musical performances are sure to inspire you, as well. Grammy Award winner Miranda Lambert will perform new songs from her new album "The Weight Of These Wings," which hit #1 on the Billboard Country Album Charts and #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart (covering all genres). Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Alessia Cara is currently in the Billboard Top 10 for "Scars To Your Beautiful" and is widely known for "Here" and "Wild Things." Emmy Award winner Rachel Platten hit multi-platinum with her smash "Fight Song," which peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped iTunes and radio charts around the globe.
