Coming this Christmas, hometown star Candice Glover will lend her powerhouse vocals to a Hallmark Channel movie.

On Thursday, Hallmark Channel tweeted, "Stunning Candice Glover is going to make our Christmas movie franchise even more spectacular." The St. Helena Island native and American Idol winner happily confirmed the news on her Facebook page and said the "secret was out."

The movie, titled "Northpole," is a "charming tale about a reporter who, with the help of her son and his teacher, attempts to recapture the joy of the holiday season to save Christmas after the world has begun to lose faith," according to a Hallmark Channel news release.

The movie will premiere as part of the network's annual "Countdown to Christmas" movie series on Nov. 15. The film also stars Tiffani Amber Thiessen ("Beverly Hills," "90210"), Josh Hopkins ("Cougar Town") Bailee Madison ("Trophy Wife") and Max Charles ("Mr. Peabody & Sherman").

Glover plays the role of Thiessen's best friend Josephine. She sings two songs in the movie, "Oh Christmas Tree" and "Silent Night," said Hallmark Channel spokesperson Pam Slay.

"We needed someone with her talent to sing those songs beautifully and to represent Hallmark for Christmas," Slay said of Glover. "She's a tremendous up and coming talent. She looks wonderful on camera and her acting is as good as her singing."
