As the Queen of Christmas, Mariah Carey, obviously knew exactly what we wanted, and she teamed up with Apple TV to make sure we got it.
On Monday, Apple announced that high note-hitter will star in, Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special, set to debut globally on Apple TV+ during the 2020 holiday season. The “innovative special” plans to mix music, dancing, and animation “driven by a universally heartwarming story that brings the world together.”
Carey will star in the virtual event as well as executive produce, along with Ian Stewart, Raj Kapoor, and Ashley Edens for production company Done + Dusted. Directed by BAFTA Award winner Hamish Hamilton and Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Roman Coppola, the evening will feature a lineup of surprise celebrity guest appearances and plenty of tracks from her best-selling holiday catalog.
Speaking of best-selling catalog, Carey has also announced that she is preparing to release a two-disc album called “The Rarities” on Oct 2. The double album is described as a “collection of personal favorites from her vault … celebrating Carey’s exceptional artistry and vision through hidden musical jewels from her personal archives.”
This news is very exciting, we desperately needed something to look forward to now that pumpkin spice lattes are officially back for the season.
