Second Cup Cafe: Mary Donnelly Haskell

Just in time for the holidays and gift giving, actress-turned singer Mary Donnelly Haskell has released a new album titled "Just In Time for Christmas."

The album from the critically-acclaimed singer features music from the City of Prague Philharmonic and the London Symphony Orchestra. It includes some of the most well-known holiday classics like "Jingle Bells," "Winter Wonderland," "We Need A Little Christmas" and more.

She visits Second Cup Café to sing songs from the album.

Haskell will also be the featured soloist with the Tupelo Symphony Orchestra in Tupelo, Miss. on Saturday Dec. 13.

The actress-turned-singer has appeared in more than 20 TV movies and has had recurring and guest-starring roles on shows such as "Sisters," "Touched By an Angel" and "7th Heaven."

Although she had a successful stage career for several years, she transitioned to working on television because it allowed her more time with her children.

She recorded three albums of personalized songs for children before releasing her Christian music debut, "Inspired: Standards - Good For the Soul" in 2005.

Haskell made her first Second Cup Café appearance in August 2007, to promote "Power of the Cross," a collection of contemporary inspirational songs.
