In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” a new video was released with celebrities lip-synching the famous tune.
Her star-studded video consisted of cameo appearances from Tyler Perry, Ariana Grande, Ali Wong, Billy Eichner, Katy Perry and Traci Ellis Ross among others. Just a few days prior, Carey released an entirely new music video for the single called “All I Want for Christmas Is You (Make My Wish Come True Edition)” featuring her twins Moroccan and Monroe.
Mimi has let the world know for quite some time she is the queen of Christmas. This year on the anniversary of her single she took her role quite seriously. As quickly as Halloween came and went, Carey, took to Twitter on Nov.1 to post a fun video of her “calling Santa” and letting him know Christmas had arrived.
In honor of the time-honored classic, a cassette and vinyl version of the single were released as well as a mini-documentary going behind the scenes of the making of the classic song and music video on Amazon Music.
Amazon Music released the mini-documentary, titled “Mariah Carey Is Christmas: The Story of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You,’” on Dec. 11 featuring interviews with Carey, producer Randy Jackson, and others giving their take on the hit that tops the charts nearly every year.
“As we continue to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You,’ it was important for me to share part of the story behind this song that still brings me joy every year. I hope you enjoy Amazon Music’s special glimpse into the magic of this song. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!”, Carey said.
