O COME ALL YE: Faneuil Hall Marketplace will have several special guests rocking around the Christmas tree when it lights the festive fixture this coming week. The historic shopping center just announced it will welcome Brynn Cartelli, the Longmeadow-raised singer who won Season 14 of “The Voice,” for a live performance during its tree-lighting celebration on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. The 15-year-old, who also wowed spectators with her singing during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last week, will be joining Gov. Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, the Mayor’s Community Gospel Choir and Santa Claus during the event, which will also be broadcast live on WBZ-TV. In addition to having Baker and Walsh ceremoniously flip the switch, the event will serve as a kick-off for the New England Patriots Toy Drive, and we hear that at least one of the team’s players will be present.

THEY’RE MAKING A LIST: All we want for Christmas is what the Wahlbergs want — and Wahlburgers is playing Santa to make that holiday miracle possible. The family-owned burger chain is hosting a “Wahl Family Wish List Sweepstakes” that will give customers the chance to win packages tailored to the personal tastes of each Dorchester-raised son involved in the restaurant. The prize options up for grabs includes: Paul’s picks of a grill, knife set and custom cutting board, along with a signed apron; Mark’s selections of a set of golf clubs, accompanying apparel and slew of signed golf balls; and Donnie’s choices of a home entertainment sound system and a pair of New Kids on The Block tickets. The contest is taking entries from now until the New Year, and you can find more info on exactly how to take part in the sweepstakes by going to wahlburgers.com/wahl-wish-list.
