Zachariah Smith and Holly Brand to perform at Christmas by Candlelight Tour

The star at the top of the Christmas tree won’t be the only thing shining this weekend as Mississippi natives Zachariah Smith and Holly Brand are set to perform at Jackson’s annual Christmas by Candlelight Tour.

Smith, who lives in Amory, most recently made a name for himself as a top-five finalist on American Idol. Brand, on the other hand, is a former Miss Mississippi out of Meridian who went to the semifinals of The Voice season 23.

First Lady Elee Reeves announced the news on Monday.
