JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Belhaven University leaders said singers are needed for the 89th Belhaven Singing Christmas Tree. They’ve sent an open invitation to the community to join students, staff, faculty and alumni to help sing at the event.

“As the new director of Belhaven’s Singing Christmas Tree, I personally invite you to participate in this year’s tree as a singer,” said Tim Walker, Belhaven’s Worship Choir Director and Instructor of Worship Leadership. “Singing on the tree is not about being a great singer, it’s about being part of a rich tradition that is a special gift to our community. My hope is that you will join us on the tree and create some wonderful memories as we kick off the Christmas season together.”
