Mya experiences heartbreak and a stalled career before things start to look up in the new Lifetime movie My Favorite Christmas Melody.

The Grammy-winning R&B artist leads the cast as singer-songwriter Abby. After a once promising career, Abby now finds herself writing uninspired jingles for commercials when a song she penned gets stolen by a more popular artist.

“Writing songs for commercials seems a bit soul-killing, I’m an artist,” Abby says in a preview clip for the film. But she agrees to do commercial work to pay the bills.

When Abby heads home for the holidays, she’s enlisted by a local high school music teacher to help save the school arts program. In the process, she rediscovers her voice and finds romance.

The film also stars Rainbow Sun Francks, Brielle Robillard, and Sonia Dhillon Tully, and is produced by Champlain Media. Lexi Lewis, Barbara Fisher, Tom Berry and Suzanne Chapman serve as executive producers. Michael Kennedy directs from a script by Lauren Balson Carter.
