Viacom’s Employee Events & Programs sent Jim Chrisman and his wife Courtney Chrisman to see VH1’s Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night live at the King’s Theatre in Brooklyn, New York on Monday, Dec. 5 2016. Photo courtesy of Jim Chrisman.

The holiday festivities began early for Viacom employee Jim Chrisman, a manager in our financial reporting group. Chrisman got to treat his wife to a once-in-a-lifetime seasonal surprise when he won tickets to VH1’s Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night, courtesy of Employee Events and Programs’ employee sweepstakes. The couple enjoyed special live performances by Mariah Carey, JoJo, Bebe Rexha, Teyana Taylor, Vanessa Williams, Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, and more. Below, Chrisman tells us a bit about how Viacom and VH1 made this holiday season particularly magical.

Where were you when you found out about winning?

I was at my desk when I got the email. I sent a Snapchat to my wife immediately. I wrote, “You won’t believe who we’re going to see Friday – MARIAH.” My wife has always loved Mariah.

Tell us a little bit about this experience. What was the energy like in the theater?

King’s Theatre in Brooklyn is beautiful to begin with, but you add in wonderfully ornate holiday decorations, a church group caroling as you enter, and delicious goodie bags in every seat…it definitely put everyone in an extremely festive mood.

Who were your favorite divas? Was there one particular performance that stood out to you, and why?

My wife loves Mariah and always has “All I Want for Christmas is You,” on repeat during the holidays. She really lost her mind when Mariah came out as the very first act. However, the crowd really swooned for Chaka Khan’s performance later on – she had everyone on their feet.

What was your overall takeaway from this experience?

My takeaway was that Viacom is truly an amazing company for the experiences it creates for fans – having so many divas come together for a Christmas show like this was a magical experience.

My submission for the contest was, “I hope my wife could have a very Mariah Christmas!” Thanks for making this wish come true.
