Organizers announced the first slate of performers Wednesday. They will join President Barack Obama and his family for the tree lighting on Dec. 6 on the Ellipse near the White House.
This will be the 91st year for the annual Christmas tree lighting. It's a tradition that dates to President Calvin Coolidge in 1923.
A lottery was held for tickets to the event. Officials are giving out tickets for 3,000 seats and 14,000 standing-room spaces.
