The diva that brought us "All I Want for Christmas is You" will be offering another holiday hit this year with the release of a Christmas special on Apple TV+ and a festive single. Never one to underestimate star power, Mariah Carey confirms that both projects will include celebrity cameos. Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special, a holiday show featuring music, dance, and more, will feature appearances by Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland, and Mykal-Michelle Harris, along with Carey's twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Coinciding with the special's release on Apple TV+ on December 4, Carey will also unveil a new rendition of "Oh Santa!" which the singer originally released on her second Christmas album, Merry Christmas II You. Carey tapped Grande and Hudson for the revamped track and an accompanying music video, which will debut the same day.
Fans can also expect "new interpretations" of Carey's favorite holiday tunes on the soundtrack for the Magical Christmas Special, which releases via Apple on December 4 and on other platforms December 11.
No stranger to the magic of Christmas, Carey has hosted a holiday residency in New York City for five years straight. From 2014 to 2019, All I Want for Christmas is You, a Night of Joy and Festivity was put on at the Beacon Theatre, delighting each holiday season with Carey's sparkling production and Christmas classics.
