NBC announced Wednesday it will air the hourlong special, A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy, on Nov. 28.

John Legend is expected to perform songs from his upcoming album, A Legendary Christmas, which is set for release Oct. 26. The singer-songwriter announced the record and his plans for a concert tour to support it earlier this month.

Legend's wife, model and Lip Sync Battle co-host Chrissy Teigen, will appear alongside him for the holiday program. Celebrity guests are to expected to be announced at a later date.

"What John has accomplished over his career is simply remarkable and we're thrilled to have both he and Chrissy host our holiday special," Doug Vaughan, executive vice president of special programs for NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "It will be a truly memorable telecast filled with wonderful performances that will have something for everyone."

Legend and Teigen have been married since 2013 and are the parents of a 5-month-old son named Miles and a 2-year-old daughter, Luna.

Legend last month made history as the first black man to achieve EGOT status, having earned an Emmy for television, Grammy for music, Oscar for film and Tony for theater throughout his career.

The award that put him over the top was the Emmy he won for producing the NBC musical event, Jesus Christ Superstar, in which he also starred as the title character.
