Sing with BelhavenOctober 15, 2021 (Jackson, Miss.) - Belhaven University is sending an open invitation to join students, staff, faculty, and alumni on the 89th Belhaven Singing Christmas Tree. Anyone in the community can now become more than a spectator and participate in the world's oldest singing Christmas tree tradition, started in 1933.

“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.”

Fill out this form and let us know if you will be joining us on the 89th Belhaven Singing Christmas Tree.
