Christmas In Our Hearts composed by Jose Mari Chan and Rina Caniza comes full circle in this album since the singer-songwriter, Chan originally wanted Lea Salonga to record the song with him. Despite saying yes, Lea could not do it because her record label at the time did not allow her. Since its initial release in 1990 however, the song has enjoyed tremendous success in the Philippines and always signals the start of the annual Christmas celebration in the country.
In line with the Yuletide season, the group composed of Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Kevin Olusola, and Matt Sallee is scheduled to go on tour starting in November for PENTATONIX: A CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR with Girl Named Tom!
