Mariah Carey Christmas Special to Premiere on Apple TV Plus

All we want for Christmas is Mariah Carey, and Apple TV+ is granting our holiday wish a couple of months early this year. The Apple streaming service announced today that they’ll be partnering with the record-breaking pop star for a brand new seasonal event titled Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special. 

The holiday event is set to premiere later this year on Apple TV+, and comes from director and BAFTA Award winner Hamish Hamilton and Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Roman Coppola. Along with Carey, a surprise lineup of famous guests are set to appear for the festive program, which Apple describes as “a magical holiday journey to enliven the Christmas spirit around the world.”

We can expect to see plenty of dancing, animation, and of course, music at Carey’s Christmas-themed event, and we’re counting on hearing some songs from her 1994 Christmas album, “Merry Christmas.” Carey’s Magical Christmas Special comes not long after she celebrated the 25th anniversary of her holiday hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” which shattered records last year when it finally reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Carey the first artist ever to have a No. 1 single for four separate decades.

Ian Stewart, Raj Kapoor and Ashley Edens are set to executive produce the musical event for Done + Dusted, the production company behind recent virtual events like The Disney Family Singalong and Dear Class of 2020, as well as The Little Mermaid Live and John Legend’s A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy. 

Carey has been keeping spirits high the past few holiday seasons. Last year, she released a holiday special with Amazon, Mariah Carey is Christmas: The Story of ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, which took viewers behind the scenes of creating her iconic single. The superstar has also embarked on an annual Christmas tour each year, starred in a YouTube special, and created two Hallmark movies for the season. While nearly everything in our lives has changed this year, one thing remains in 2020: Carey is still the unofficial Christmas queen.
