While Mariah Carey is no stranger to saturating the Christmas season thanks to her enduring hit, ‘All I Want For Christmas is You,’ the Pop icon’s activity has gone into overdrive this year to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the tune’s premiere.
In addition to the release of a deluxe edition of its parent album, ‘Merry Christmas,’ the diva embarked on a Stateside tour to spread holiday cheer on November 22 (click here to read more). Now, partnering with Amazon Music, Carey’s Christmas campaign will venture into video streaming territory with the release of the forthcoming documentary “Mariah Carey Is Christmas: The Story of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You.’”
Although no official release date accompanied the trailer’s unveiling, what is known is the project promises to reveal exactly how Carey crafted the enduring Christmas classic.
And, while the doc will feature commentary from the chart-topping songstress and a number of other musicians, industry insiders, and more (i.e. Randy Jackson, ‘Variety’ music editor Shirley Halperin, ‘Billboard’ senior chart director Gary Trust, and Carey’s longtime backup singer and friend, Trey Lorenz), there’s no word on if her estranged, former co-writer Walter Afanasieff will be one of them.
