Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special will broadcast exclusively on Apple TV+

Mariah Carey’s legacy is one that will go untarnished for centuries to come, with her festive track All I Want For Christmas undoubtedly leading the charge. Every year as December 25th looms, the song storms up the music charts across the globe, proving that whilst jolly new music for the holidays is something we can all look forward to, it’s the classics we’ll always hold truly dear.

With her grip well and truly on the Christmas crown, Carey shows no sign of slowing down her festive traditions and will in fact build on them this December, with the release of Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, exclusive to Apple TV+.

You can watch the trailer for the Christmas special below:

As you’ll see in the teaser, Carey isn’t the only famous face getting involved! She’s gotten a whole bunch of celebrity friends to take part in the festivities, including Jennifer Hudson, Tiffany Haddish, Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg, Billy Eichner, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland and Mykal-Michelle Harris!

Also recognising that Christmas is a time best spent with family, Carey’s nine-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, make a special appearance in this stunning, original story.

There's a holiday cheer crisis facing the world, with the North Pole confident that there is only one person who can save the day - Mariah Carey herself!

Beautiful musical performances, dynamic dancing and gorgeous animation all combine as the undisputed Queen of Christmas jumps into action, encouraging all watching at home to stay merry.

It's exactly what we need in this strange new world.

Oh Santa!, which serves as a single from the show's soundtrack, was co-written by Carey, who features and performs alongside Grande and Hudson. It will debut along with a music video, distributed by Sony Music and released on Apple Music and other streaming platforms, from December 4th, 2020.

A whole bunch of exciting new festive interpretations of classic songs will also be featured on the soundtrack, which includes Snoop and Dupri as additional music guests, along with a new version of Sleigh Ride. Apple Music will hold the collection exclusively from December 4th, until it’s released to all streaming platforms on December 11th, 2020.

Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special meanwhile, will premiere exclusively across the globe on Friday, December 4th, on Apple TV+.
