Michael Bublé’s big pipes are coming to the small screen—and it’s just in time for Christmas!

The Canadian crooner’s sixth annual concert special will air Dec. 20th at 8 p.m. on NBC. Dubbed Michael Buble Sings and Swings, the hour-long event taped in Manchester, England will feature a blend of Bublé’s pop smashes—including some cuts off his latest album, Nobody but Me—as well as a vast array of jazz standards that he’s made his very own.

The concert may be a few weeks off, but PEOPLE can exclusively reveal key art in anticipation of the “showstopping night with the Grammy-winning icon.”

The performance was taped before it was revealed in November that his 3-year-old son, Noah, is battling cancer. Since the heartbreaking announcement, Bublé, 41, says that he will suspend all concerts and industry commitments to deal with the health crisis. Just days later he pulled out of a headlining slot at the BBC Music Awards.

“Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well,” he wrote in the initial announcement posted to his Facebook page. “At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”
