Mariah, Tree Lightings, Christmas Crafts – Weekend Happenings
All I want For Christmas is Mariah! The singer! The Christmas tour! The documentary?
Mariah Carey, who begins a brief holiday tour Saturday at Hard Rock Atlantic City, is also the focus of a new mini-documentary.
On Wednesday, Amazon released the trailer for a new mini-documentary,Mariah Carey Is Christmas! The short film will dive into the history of the pop star’s smash hit turned holiday classic from 1994, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
The definitive holiday song of the last 25 years is as famous for its retro feel as it is for its steady and predictable takeover of the radio and the pop charts during the holidays.
Mariah Carey's All I want For Christmas Is You Tour, an evening on Christmas songs and longtime favorites, is Saturday at Hard Rock Atlantic City.
