Police are taking measures to prevent a terror attack during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, the annual march that takes place along a 2.5-mile stretch of Manhattan.

McLachlan says both albums were challenging for her to create, because she was concerned about how she could bring a fresh spin to so many familiar songs.

“Even though I do love Christmas songs and I do sing Christmas music all the time,” she says, “how I would lend my voice to it and create something new — because these songs have been done so many ways by so many different artists — that was a challenge.”

They put you on it and set you up and they say, ‘You’re going to be on in about three minutes so prepare yourself.’ And then we go around the corner and [you see all] the TV cameras and the song starts and you start singing. And then five minutes later you’re basically pulled off the thing [laughs] and put back into your car and off to the next thing.”
