When I hear “All I Want For Christmas Is You” playing, its then, that I truly feel Christmas has arrived. Amazon is celebrating the hit by releasing a mini-documentary: Mariah Carey Is Christmas: The Story of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” which will honor Carey and her 1994 holiday hit. The documentary will show the story behind the iconic song and how it gained its success.
The popular song has spent 36 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s holiday chart since 2011. Aside from Mariah Carey herself, the mini documentary, set to premiere later this month, will feature commentary from Randy Jackson, longtime collaborator; Shirley Halperin, Executive Editor for Music at Variety; Gary Trust, and her longtime backup singer and friend, Trey Lorenz.
25 years after the hit was released, we get to learn about how the singer created her first holiday album “Merry Christmas.” Check out the trailer for the documentary above.
