They spread the holiday mood with a free concert for all in a mall parking lot
Listen to Blake Shelton on iHeartRadio
(Yahoo!) - Los Angeles Christmas shoppers received an early gift on Saturday when a special guest visited the Westfield Culver City mall--no, it wasn't Santa Claus! It was, however, country music star and Voice coach Blake Shelton, who likely didn't care if anyone was on the "naughty list"--he spread the holiday mood with a free concert for all in the mall's parking lot.
The show was the last stop on Shelton'sjcpenney Holiday Giving tour, a philanthropic 12-day trek of free shows across the U.S. Accompanying Shelton was his former Team Blake mentor from Season 2 of TheVoice (and newly minted Republic Nashville recording artist), RaeLynn.
Shelton had a few minutes to chat before the show, and shared some thoughts on a very productive 2012 and holiday season.
When asked what his career highlight of the year was, Shelton touched on November's Country Music Association Awards, where he scored the top honor of the night. "It's hard to beat that Entertainer of the Year win," he admitted.
However, "I'm still having so much fun with theVoice," he noted. "It's hard to put into words how exciting and gratifying it is. You see these people when they start, and what they become by the end of the show, and just to have a small part in their life in that way--that' s hard to replace."
