WICHITA, Kan. (December 2, 2011)–Former dcTalk singer Michael Tait, who’s now lead singer for the Newsboys, sings “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” and other Christmas songs on “The Story” tour, which kicked off Thursday night in Wichita, Kan., and continues Friday night in Dallas.

Joining the Newsboys on “The Story” Christmas tour are Steven Curtis Chapman, Natalie Grant and Francesca Battistelli.

Tait said the three-hour show mixes Christmas songs with dramatic musical depictions of major characters from the Bible.

When he’s off-stage and home for the holidays, Tait said he’s always asked to sing “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” and the rest of the classic whose actual title is “The Christmas Song.”
