The first look at Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special has appeared. The trailer and key art for the December 4th event for Apple TV + were revealed on Friday.
The show will feature Carey with Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland and Mykal-Michelle Harris, as well as Carey’s 9-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe.
What makes it special is that the world is facing a Christmas cheer crisis that the North Pole knows only one person can solve: Mariah Carey, Santa’s great friend. Carey (spoiler alert) combines musical performances, dance and animation and saves the day.
The soundtrack single and new music video for “Oh Santa!”, Co-written by Carey with Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson and played by Carey, will be distributed by Sony Music and will be available on December 4th on Apple Music and other streaming Platforms published.
The accompanying soundtrack for the special will include a new version of “Sleigh Ride” as well as Snoop Dogg and Jermaine Dupri as additional musical guests. The soundtrack will be available exclusively on Apple Music on December 4th and on all other platforms on December 11th.
The Apple TV + subscription service is available for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, selected Samsung, LG, Sony and VIZIO Smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, PlayStation and Xbox Consoles and available at tv.apple. com.
Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time, with more than 200 million albums sold and 19 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (18 self-written), more than any other solo artist in history. She recently published her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, which debuted at # 1 on the New York Times bestseller list.
