Broadway star Maureen McGovern will perform her “Home for the Holidays” Christmas concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy’s Scott Center for Performing Arts.

The performance is part of the seventh annual Homeless Heart Christmas Tour of Central Florida, which helps homeless families in Brevard County.

McGovern’s performance at the Scott Center will be her only stop in Brevard County during the three-concert series.

McGovern’s big break came in 1972 when she was asked to sing “The Morning After,’’ which was the theme song for “The Poseidon Adventure.” The song reached No. 1 in 1973, and the song won an Oscar for Best Original Song.
