Xfinity Arena’s biggest show of the year is, arguably, Saturday evening with Grammy award-winners Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith.

The Christian music stars are on a national tour promoting Operation Christmas Child, a nonprofit that distributes millions of gifts to children from needy families in 150 countries.

Also performing on Nov. 18 is Jordan Smith, the Season 9 winner of NBC’s “The Voice,” and a full symphony orchestra.

Grant and Smith draw hundreds of thousands of fans to their holiday concerts each year and their joint Christmas tours have become highly anticipated events. With a collection of Christmas albums between them, Grant and Smith will showcase selections from their extensive holiday repertoires.

“Being on stage with Amy and a full symphony orchestra, performing some of my all-time favorite songs, is a dream come true,” Smith said in a press release from the tour. “And I have to say, I have never heard a voice quite as pure and beautiful as Jordan Smith’s. It’s going to be a great night.”

Grant echoed his sentiments.

“Christmas is my favorite time of year, and performing these holiday shows each November and December is a major highlight for me,” she said in the press release. “I’m thrilled to share the stage with Michael and Jordan, and I’m so glad some new audiences will be able to join in the Christmas spirit with us this year.”

Smith and Grant each have new Christmas albums out. His includes collaborations with Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Bono, Michael McDonald and Grant. Jordan Smith also released his first-ever Christmas album, coinciding with the tour.
