    Fifteen-year-old vocalist Bobby Hill joins Newsworks Tonight’s Dave Heller to discuss his new album, its creation, and the impact his music has on the public.

    He was said to have the “voice of an angel” by actor Mark Wahlberg during Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia in the fall of 2015, and since his impromptu solo performance for the Pope, Philly native Bobby Hill has travelled the world to sing.

    The fifteen-year-old’s new CD, “A Bobby Hill Christmas: My Best for Him,” sold out within two hours of its debut on QVC. He joined Newsworks Tonight’s Dave Heller to discuss the album, its creation, and the impact his music has on the public.
