A little love goes a long way in new AT&T holiday spot

(Lebron James shows off singing skills in AT&T spot)

AT&T, with help from LeBron James, is sharing a little love as we all close out a trying 2020 and look forward to the New Year with hope.

The new creative, from our friends at BBDO, LA, features peeps from all walks of life coming together singing the 1969 David Ruffin hit Put a Little Love in Your Heart, including a few notable vocal cameos from AT&T’s well-loved Lily character, and none-other than LeBron James.

The heartfelt track serves as a much-needed anthem for unity and compassion as we all continue to be socially distant. Watch the :60-second spot below directed by The Corner Shop’s Peter Thwaites:
