As for her favorite holiday tradition, Cabello said it’s celebrating Nochebuena. “Latinos celebrate Christmas the 24th, and it’s something that we call Nochebuena,” she said. “That’s when we have kind of, like, our party and there’s rice and beans and a bunch of our traditional food from the countries.”
The Cinderella star also said that her grandmother’s birthday is Dec. 24 and her mom’s birthday is Dec. 25.
“So it’s a lot happening in those two days,” Cabello noted, “so we celebrate their birthdays, too.”
Cabello isn’t the only one set to perform in the musical special. Andrea Bocelli along with his son Matteo Bocelli and daughter Virginia Bocelli, Eric Church, the Jonas Brothers, Norah Jones, Pentatonix and Billy Porter are also set to sing.
