Published Nov 18, 2020Closeted alt-rocker Mariah Carey is also, of course, the queen of Christmas. In other words, it makes perfect sense that Apple TV+ asked her to host her very own Christmas variety special. Today, details of the project have emerged.
The show, which has been dubbed Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special, will debut on December 4. The special will arrive alongside an official soundtrack, which is an Apple TV exclusive.
The special's soundtrack will include a new version of her hit "Oh Santa!" which will feature Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande. The soundtrack featuring that song and many other new holiday hits will arrive on December 11.
The special sees Mariah Carey help out an old friend named Santa Claus. Alongside Hudson and Grande, other people set to appear in the special include Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland, Mykal-Michelle Harris and Carey's twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special was directed by Hamish Hamilton and Roman Coppola.
