The holiday season just got a little bit more musically festive this year. Mariah Carey, aka the Soul of Christmas, will be performing once again in her own Christmas concert special, Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues that will be streamed exclusively on AppleTV+.
“I can’t wait to share Christmas with the world,” Carey beams in the trailer, sparkling in a gold and bronze sequined gown.
Last year, the first edition of Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special was a success for the streamer. Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande were part of the impressive lineup and gave some spiritual performances.
Joining Mariah this year will be gospel crooner Kirk Franklin and pop sensation Khalid. The three together will harmonize a first and only performance of Mariah’s latest holiday track, Fall In Love At Christmas, a warm rendition of her classic, Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).
And if these two collaborators are not enough to sweeten the special, Mariah’s ten-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe Cannon will be making an appearance as they shine next to their mother. Additionally, Apple Music personality Zane Lowe and Mariah’s dancers will be sharing in the musical festivities.
Of course, it won’t be a true Mariah holiday special if All I Want For Christmas Is You was not included in the event’s setlist. The concert will open up with the Heartbreaker singer performing her legendary song. Since its initial launch in 1994, All I Want For Christmas Is You topped the Billboard charts, along with being the most viewed holiday video on Youtube.
Since then, Mariah has been “Queen of the Holidays.”
Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues will be available to stream globally on December 3rd on AppleTV+.
