Olympic gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White, as well as Grammy-award winner Aaron Neville will headline the Detroit tree lighting ceremony at Campus Martius Park on Nov. 18.

WXYZ will broadcast its annual "Light Up The Season" special beginning at 7 p.m. that evening.

Neville will sing during the ceremony while Davis and White will perform on the ice rink.

The DTE Energy Foundation presentation of the holiday tree to the city of Detroit – and to all the residents and visitors who come out to enjoy its beauty – has become a wonderful tradition for us,” said Faye Nelson, vice president, DTE Energy, and board chair and president of the DTE Energy Foundation. “It’s one of the special ways we show our appreciation to the communities we serve, helping thousands of families create memories that will last a lifetime.”
