The Voice's Dez Duron Looks Ahead to 'Next Christmas' in New Song Written by Michael Arden & Andy Mientus

Dez Duron is looking ahead to “Next Christmas” in a brand new holiday song!

The 30-year-old singer was in the Top 8 on the third season of The Voice and he lent his smooth vocals to the new track, which was released on Christmas Eve.

Broadway power couple Michael Arden and Andy Mientus teamed up with songwriter Jackson Teeley to write the song, which was co-produced by Christian Hebel.

“I think this song is equal parts timeless and timely. This is dedicated to anyone who can’t be with the ones they love or whose Christmas is looking a lot different this year. Next Christmas isn’t so far away,” Dez wrote on Instagram.

Michael said, “This was written on lots of brown liquor and gummy bears and is a song about this insane year. It’s about the longing and yearning to be close to loved ones on Christmas when they are miles apart. I hope it brings you some joy this Christmas Eve.”

“A few weeks ago, @michaelarden, @jacksonteeley and I were in our feelings about the coming holiday. This Christmas would be unlike any in our lifetime, but we were choosing to stay hopeful about next year and how much sweeter all of our favorite traditions would feel, having been denied them. We tried to capture that feeling in a song, a new old Christmas tune in the tradition of the classics we grew up with,” Andy said.

Watch the song’s music video, featured company members of The Forest of Arden, below. You can also get the song now on Apple Music or Spotify.

Michael recently directed a filmed version of his inventive A Christmas Carol staging, starring Jefferson Mays. There’s just a little more than a week left to stream it now!

Katharine McPhee Will Reunite with 'Smash' Stars During a Special Live Stream

Katharine McPhee and some other stars from the NBC series Smash will be reuniting during a live stream event TODAY (March 20)!

Kat will join Jeremy Jordan, Krysta Rodriguez, and Andy Mientus on the next episode of the Broadway Jackbox series, hosted by former Dear Evan Hansen actors Andrew Barth Feldman and Alex Boniello.

Broadway Jackbox airs on Tuesdays and Fridays at 6pm EST on Twitch. The show will be raising money for The Actors Fund during the stream.

“The first ones were such a blast,” Andrew said in a statement (via BroadwayWorld.com). “They completely achieved our goal of creating something silly, fun, and distracting amidst this craziness, but Alex and I both realized we could use this to give back to our community in a more concrete way. With the theater community in such a state of flux, it only seemed right to give to The Actors Fund who are doing all they can to help our industry through this insane, unprecedented time. So let’s have some fun and do some good! And also, as the self-appointed head of the #ReviveSmash campaign, this is big for me.”

Kat, Jeremy, Krysta, and Andy‘s characters on Smash were all part of the musical Hit List, which was a competitor to Bombshell.

“.@andrewbfeldman & @AlexBoniello are getting the smash cast together. @andrewbfeldman & @AlexBoniello are getting the smash cast together. I REPEAT @andrewbfeldman & @AlexBoniello are getting the SMASH cast together on #BwayJackbox!” Kat tweeted.

On Thursday night, Kat had Jeremy as a guest on her own Instagram Live. Watch a video below!

Dolly Parton Says '9 to 5' Sequel with Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin Has Been 'Dropped'!

The anticipated 9 to 5 sequel has been dropped!

Dolly Parton confirmed the unfortunate news while attending the world premiere of her upcoming Netflix series Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings on Tuesday (October 29) in Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

The original 1980 film followed three working women – the 73-year-old country star along with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin – who live out their fantasy of getting even with their antagonistic boss (Dabney Coleman).

“[They've] dropped that whole idea. I don’t think we’re going to do the sequel,” Dolly revealed (via ET). “We never could get the script where it was enough different than the first one, and that one turned out so good.”

“We’re thinking we might do a completely different thing together, Jane, Lily and I,” Dolly added. “We may do something different altogether, but I don’t think we’ll continue with [the sequel].”

Dolly Parton was joined at the premiere by cast members Julianne Hough and her mother Marriann, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Kyle Bornheimer, Andy Mientus, Ben Lawson, Jessica Collins, Sarah Shahi, Holly Taylor, Willa Fitzgerald, Shane McGhie, Tyler Crumley, Vanessa Rubio, Mac Davis, Aidan Langford, Jaclyn Betham, Mary Lane Haskell, Mary Donnelly Haskell and executive producers Sam Haskell and Patrick Sean Smith.

Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings will be released on Netflix on November 22nd.

FYI: Willa is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress, Gianvito Rossi shoes and Swarovski jewels.
