“Queen of Christmas” Mariah Carey Previews Her New Christmas Special

Good Morning America

It’s December, and that means it’s time to buy a Christmas tree and finish shopping for everyone on our gift list. If you’re not feeling ready to embrace the most festive time of the year, perhaps a star studded Christmas special will put you in the holiday spirit. Mariah Carey has you covered.

Carey truly loves Christmas. She wants Christmas to be magical for her children, but she admits that part of the magic she creates for her children is really for herself. She explained to ET that not having great Christmas memories when she was a child motivated her to make things more magical for her children. She said, “I just want my kids to have the best time, and honestly, a lot of it is for me.”

Carey wants to share holiday cheer with more than just her family. She also wants to bring Christmas joy to the entire world, and she has been doing so for 30 years, ever since the release of her hit Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas.”

Last year, Carey released a Christmas special on Apple TV+ titled, “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas,” and this year she is following up that festive special with a sequel titled, “Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues.” Just like the first special, it includes guest stars and show stopping performances. Plus, her dress weighs 60 pounds.

Watch the video below to learn more about Carey’s new Christmas special, including a brand new song that will be featured during the special. Plus, learn some of the things Carey likes to do to celebrates the holidays.

“Mariah’s Christmas: the Magic Continues” is available exclusively on Apple TV+ starting today, December 3, 2021. If you are not already an Apple TV+ subscriber, you can start a 7-day free trial.
