LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC says Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg and William Shatner are among those joining Kelly Clarkson's holiday special.

The special, titled "Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Music Tale," is also set to include country stars Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood, NBC said Wednesday.

The show is a comedic musical approach take on the meaning of Christmas, the network said. In the story, Clarkson schemes to boost her popularity with a holiday special but ends up learning an important lesson.

The featured songs are from the Grammy-winning pop star's newly released Christmas album, "Wrapped in Red," with classics including "Silent Night" and "White Christmas."

Other guests include Danica Patrick, Heidi Klum and Jay Leno. Clarkson's special is set to air at 10 p.m. EST on Dec. 11.

Clarkson, 31, also had personal news to announce this week. The original "American Idol" winner said she and husband Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together.

Clarkson and Blackstock were married last month. Blackstock is the son of Clarkson's manager, Narvel Blackstock, and McEntire's stepson.
