Jordin Sparks is set to star in "A Christmas Treasure," a new Hallmark Channel original Christmas movie premiering during Countdown to Christmas, which launches this October. Sparks also will executive produce. Michael Xavier (Christmas Comes Twice) will co-star.
In "A Christmas Treasure," after opening a 100-year-old time capsule and finding her grandfather’s old journal, Lou (Sparks) questions whether she should move to New York after Christmas to further her writing career or stay in Pine Grove to carry on her family’s local newspaper. Charming chef, Kyle (Xavier), is also at a crossroads, visiting Pine Grove for the holidays. When Lou and Kyle meet, they both have doubts about their future, but the magic of the holiday season and the connection they have, helps each of their journeys.
An added bonus for the movie, Sparks sings two classic Christmas songs in the movie, covering “This Christmas” and on the piano, “Oh Holy Night.” Her original song from her 2020 Christmas album Cider & Hennessy “Oh, It’s Christmas” will also be part of the movie.
