Truth! Watch The Trailer For ‘Mariah Carey Is Christmas’
Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is so ingrained in our collective consciousness that it’s hard to imagine a time when it didn’t exist. The numbers are staggering. Mimi’s seasonal bop, first released in 1994, returns to the charts annually (it has spent 36 cumulative weeks at number one on Billboard’s Holiday Chart) and inspired a children’s book and animated movie. Oh, and it has earned the vocal legend $60 million dollars along the way. It’s only fitting that a documentary be made about the festive phenomenon and Amazon Music steps up to the plate.
Earlier today (December 4), the online music giant announced an upcoming mini-documentary called Mariah Carey Is Christmas: The Story of “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It explains how one of the most iconic songs of the 20th century came together by interviewing Mimi as well as a series of collaborators and experts including Randy Jackson, Trey Lorenz, Shirley Halperin (Executive Editor for Music at Variety) and Gary Trust (Billboard’s Senior Director of Charts). Watch the fascinating trailer below.
