XLO’s Acoustic Xmas is a homecoming of sorts for American singer, actress and dancer ALISAN PORTER. As a child who was born in Worcester, MA, Porter made acting appearances in Parenthood, Stella and I Love You to Death. Her breakout role came in 1991, when she played the lead in the film Curly Sue opposite Jim Belushi.
As an adult, Porter is perhaps best known as the winner of TV’s The Voice in 2016, where she dazzled the fans and judges alike as part of Team Christina (Aguilera). She has released two studio albums and has performed in numerous roles for film, television and stage. While she was born in Worcester, MA, her performance on December 19th at XLO’s Acoustic Xmas will mark her first live musical performance in the city where she was born.
THE RUA are a family pop rock band from Windsor, England. The band consists of sisters, Roseanna (Lead Vocals, guitar), Alanna (Piano, backing vocals) and brother, Jonathan Brown (violin, vocals, guitar). They released their debut single "Fight For Whats Right' in 2015, and in 2018 released their latest hit single “All I Ever Wanted”. Billboard Magazine named the band one of 'Tomorrow's Hits', also calling the band's 'sound' a mix between Taylor Swift, The Cranberries and The Corrs. The band will be making their 3rd appearance at XLO’s Acoustic Xmas, back by popular demand.
