"As performers, the best thing we can do…is pull away the curtain and try to let somebody see your soul for that five minutes they get to hear you sing.”

The interview (including video and a cameo by Hugh's mother) can be found here: - Philadelphia native Hugh Panaro on The Philly Pops Christmas Spectacular

Hugh also performs "I'll Be Home For Christmas" during this segment:

"Perhaps the most moving part of the afternoon was Philadelphia- raised Broadway star, Hugh Panaro, and his rendition of “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables. The piece was chosen to honor the troops overseas that cannot come home for the holidays. The audience was so moved by Panaro, you could hear a pin drop and many were brought to tears by his performance. Inevitably, there was a standing ovation. This was a special music moment that everyone in the audience will treasure for years to come."
