Oxygen�s other guests include R&B artist Toni Braxton and cable�s first full-figured beauty competition winner, Joanne Borgella of Monique�s FAT Chance, who will make her television debut as a singer.

From November 28th through December 5th, fans can join in on the festivities by visiting www.oxygen.com and vote on Bice and Osborne�s duet (choices include Baby, It�s Cold Outside and All I Want for Christmas is You), other holiday tunes such as Little Drummer, Run Rudolph Run and Christmas in New Orleans and submit questions for the singers to answer throughout the show.

Oxygen will be spreading holiday cheer throughout the televised concert by promoting awareness for Habitat for Humanity�s Women Build Program. The Women Build Program helps Habitat for Humanity International build more homes by involving women and girls in constructing homes and communities.
