LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A country music star and an elf sing at Kosair Children's Hospital.

Pam Tillis sang "Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer" with one of Santa's helpers.

The pair took a break from "Christmas at the Galt House" to surprise children and spread the Christmas spirit.

"If you can bring a smile to a kid's face that's going through, whatever it is they are going through, you pretty much...I mean that's just the ultimate. It's really better than any applause or gold record or anything. It's really the ultimate," Tillis said.

Tillis said she's grateful for the experience and is enjoying her second season in Louisville.

You can see her perform at the Galt House through this Saturday.
