All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is to share her newest ‘All I Want For Christmas’ video with her adoring fans. Mariah Carey’s Christmas cash machine is in full swing with a brand-new music video with previously unseen tour footage.
Mariah Carey has announced her latest Christmas gift for her devoted fans, nicknamed the Lambs — a new music video featuring previously unseen footage from her “Merry Christmas One and All!” tour. The new video, “All I Want for Christmas Is You (Festive Lambs Edition),” focuses on Carey’s fans both outside concert venues and in the stands wearing their most festive hats and sweaters.
The video also features a lot of the folks who helped make the tour happen, including Carey’s backup singers and dancers, choreographers, and bandmates. Some scenes show them rehearsing routines and practicing backstage. Several celebrities who made appearances on the tour also feature in the music video, including Miley Cyrus and Nicole Richie.
Though Carey takes somewhat of a background role in the video overall, she appears in several festive costumes, including a nutcracker-inspired outfit. Her 12-year-old twins with Nick Cannon — Moroccan and Monroe — also make an appearance.
Mariah Carey’s “Merry Christmas One and All!” tour kicked off November 15, and finishes up on December 17 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The same day the tour wraps up, Carey will release a mini-documentary on her YouTube channel, providing fans with an “exclusive behind the scenes look at the meticulous preparations and magical moments that define the tour.”
“All I Want for Christmas Is You” continues to put Carey front and center in the cultural zeitgeist each holiday season. The self-proclaimed Queen of Christmas’ 1994 hit has become the bestselling Christmas song of all time. Last year, it earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Greatest of All Time Holiday 100 Songs list. During the song’s 25th anniversary in 2019, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
