Tony Bennett Headlines the Celebration with Holiday CD Exclusive
NEW YORK, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomingdale's pulls out all the stops for holiday 2008, a season that includes spectacular gifts, exciting partnerships, and high-end fashion. The Sony Music collaboration that began this fall continues through the holiday season with numerous appearances and creative contributions by legendary recording artists. And, for the second year in a row, Infiniti will sponsor the spectacular unveiling of Bloomingdale's fantasy holiday windows at the flagship 59th Street store.
On November 20, Grammy award winning artist Tony Bennett will unveil Bloomingdale's holiday windows on Lexington Avenue. He will perform a selection of holiday classics, as featured on his new album, TONY BENNETT: A SWINGIN' CHRISTMAS Featuring the Count Basie Big Band. The performance choir from the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, the NYC public arts high school that Tony founded with his wife Susan, will perform some holiday favorites prior to Tony Bennett taking the stage.
Bennett, a gifted visual artist, created an original watercolor of the famed Lexington Avenue Bloomingdale's marquee whose image will be reproduced on the store's holiday shopping bag and a special electronic gift card. Each Tony Bennett-designed gift card will feature a code that gives recipients access to download an exclusive "Jingle Bells" track - which he recorded just for Bloomingdale's - via iTunes. Bloomingdale's will also carry a special version of his album's CD in stores and online, featuring the special "Jingle Bells" track.

classics on Lexington Avenue," said Jack Hruska, executive vice president,
