Superstar diva Mariah Carey has made no secret of her love for all things “festive”; as such, there were few better choices than her to switch on the Christmas tree lights at the Rockefeller Center in New York last night.
Cheered on by the thousands in attendance, the American Idol judge also performed her classic ‘All I Want For Christmas’, as well as ‘Christmas Time Is In The Air Again’. The latter is being used to promote the re-release of Mimi’s second Holiday album ‘Merry Christmas II You’ – which originally hit stores in 2010 and birthed moderate hit ‘Oh Santa’.
Watch the 42 year old soar below…
All I Want For Christmas Is You
Christmas Time Is In The Air Again
Mariah sounded sublime on ‘Christmas Time Is In The Air Again’ (as did her backing track on ‘All I Want’).
Underrated as a business-woman, she and her team are uber smart for re-revving the ‘Merry Christmas II You’ campaign, ensuring steady sales for the Gold certified set for years to come.
