Days of our Lives star Jen Lilley is everywhere these days. In addition to her busy schedule playing Theresa Donovan on the NBC daytime drama, she recently released a fantastic Christmas album, "Tinsel Time." On Saturday night (8 p.m. ET/PT), she is starring in Lifetime's The Spirit of Christmas movie premiere. At the exact same time, Hallmark will be airing Mariah Carey's directorial debut in the film, A Christmas Melody, which will feature Lilley's "Jingle Bells" from her new album.

Speaking of The Spirit of Christmas, Lilley plays ambitious young lawyer Kate, and exhibits much charisma and star power in the role. It's a pretty standard Lifetime movie, but it is fun to watch Lilley take on a new role and be featured as a leading lady in this type of project. Her character, Kate, has a promotion on the line so she heads to Vermont to broker the sale of an old inn. Kate has her work cut out for her when she learns its haunted and she meets Daniel Forsythe (Thomas Beaudoin) - a handsome man who died 95 years ago! Each year, Daniel takes human form exactly twelve days before Christmas, unable to move on with the mystery of his death unsolved. Determined to help Daniel, Kate finds herself in an unlikely romance with the dashing Christmas spirit.

Watch a sneak peek of The Spirit of Christmas below.

Lilley's album has been selling quickly, and "Tinsel Time" made into Amazon's top 5 best selling Jazz albums list this week.

On April 6, Lilley will be co-hosting the 7th Annual Indie Series Awards with Days co-star, Eric Martsolf.

With 2016 just around the corner, the future looks very bright for this rising star.
