Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: ESRT) and iHeartMedia today announced that the annual Empire State Building (ESB) holiday music-to-light show will feature Interscope artist OneRepublic’s newly released version of White Christmas.

“Each holiday season, the Empire State Building’s light show brings Christmas cheer to the entire world via social media,” said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, and CEO of ESRT. “We are proud that our annual show has become the highlight of the holiday season for so many. This year, I am thrilled that we are partnering with Interscope Records and OneRepublic to illuminate the New York City skyline.”
