The Singing Christmas tree was conceptualized and designed by Millard Heath in 1972. It took several different designs to finally produce the perfect structure for the tree. Initially, the designers tried using pipe, but it was not strong enough to hold that many people in the tree, so a decision was made to use steel which turned out to be a perfect match. Thereafter, the company produced over 200 trees across the United States and the world.
In 2003, Jeffrey Smith purchased the company and now owns the rights and patents to the Singing Christmas Tree which can be seen in various forms all over the world including the United States, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean.
For many years, Mrs. Elsa Bobb, choir director and musical producer in the Cayman Islands, always desired to produce a local version of the Singing Christmas Tree against the backdrop of starlit skies and warm tropical Caribbean breezes. After a tremendous amount of hard work, her vision finally materialized in 2011 capturing the world's first ever outdoor Singing Christmas Tree. Needless to say, it was a resounding success.
In its debut year alone, the Cayman Singing Christmas Tree had over 3,000 visitors. The Cayman Islands, being the first country to ever successfully produce "The Singing Christmas Tree" outdoors, has caught the attention of many.
