Mariah Carey is cementing her status as a Christmas maven for the ages.
The ever festive diva already boasts the only song to be deemed a Holiday classic in the last four decades and this year builds on that legacy with a lengthy list of Xmas activity.
As previously reported, she stars in and serves as executive producer of Hallmark‘s original TV movie ‘A Christmas Melody.’ And today, it’s been announced that that partnership will also see Mimi stage a one-hour televised concert.
Titled ‘Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas,’ the musical special features performances of Holiday songs from Carey herself, including a duet with 11-time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.
Additionally, Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer gives a reading of ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ while cast members from ‘A Christmas Melody’ join the festivities sharing holiday memories and experiences from working on the movie.
‘Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas’ airs immediately following the film at 10pm ET, December 19th, on Hallmark.
